Your course handicap for each tournament starts with the handicap index that you submit/update prior to every tournament round. Course handicaps are then calculated using that handicap index submitted pre-tournament (to a factor of 70%) and also based on past TGA Tour scores (to a factor of 30%).
Mobile phone scoring in each group allows the field to easily see where they stand on a real time live leaderboard throughout the round. All players can view live net scores, gross scores, and real time standing within your flight!
One player in each group will track scores using a traditional scorecard, while a 2nd player keeps a mobile scorecard using an easy-to-use app from leaderboard.com. At the end of the round the two scorecards are compared, attested, and a mobile version is uploaded as the offical scorecard for that group.
The O of M tracks the year-long points race to claim the TGA Order of Merit Champion title at the season-ending Tour Championship. At every tournament points are awarded based mainly on your net score within your flight, but points are also offered for low gross scoring, KP's, and more. Only your top 5 O of M totals will count otwards your seasons' total.
