Order of Merit & Scoring

Rounds 1-4 will offer points towards the Strand Cup order of merit, with the major (Back Tee Cup), offering double points.

Every player will receive points in reverse order of how they finished.

Example of 10 players in competion.

1st will receive 10 points, down to 10th place who receives 1 point. This means you always have something to play for, even if you have a bad start. The idea is to compete for as many points as possible, towards the Strand Cup order of merit.

In Rounds 1-4, bonus points will also be awarded:

1st 8 points

2nd 4 points

3rd- 2 points

* All points and bonus points will be doubled in the final.
