2013 Iowa Tour

Postby Conrad 37988 » Tue Dec 18, 2012 6:58 pm

Hello everyone
In 2013 there will be a few changes. However the current points system will NOT change. Here is the link to the current points system. http://proflightdiscs.com/ProFlight/BAG_TAG.html.

Two things.

1. Limiting events to 13 Total Events. 12 tour stops, 1 final.

2. Match Play Finals.

The top 32 male, and top 32 female point earners will be invited to play in the finals. If someone in the top 32 can't make it to the finals the next place in line would get the spot.

Players will be seeded by their total number of points earned at Iowa Tour events.

The matches will be 9-12 hole rounds depending on the course that gets selected. Everyone will play at least 4 rounds.

Check out the facebook page http://www.facebook.com/#!/TheIowaTour

Also, not that this is a real change, but I will try to get points updated after every tournament.

The 2013 Iowa Tour Schedule

Mar 16 OPC
Apr 6 Shaver Showdown
Apr 14 Peninsula

top 32 women point earners? There aren't even close to that many female competitors in the state. I think you could probably amend that to top 54 men and top 10 women and still include all the women that play the iowa tour.

Ok, we'll do that then. It makes sense.

Thanks Jay

The point system really confuses me (nothing new there). So no matter where you finish you get 60 points? Unless it is one of the last four tour events if you have not already played seven events on the year then you get 70? BUT if it's not one of your top 7 events then you don't get the bonus points? I'm even more lost than when I started :shock:

The scoring is broken into 3 categories. There will be 13 Iowa Tour events.
Number of Tournaments Played
Division Results at each Tournament
Bonus Point Possibilities

Number of Tournament Played:
10 points – for each of the first 7 events a player competes in
20 points – for each additional event after 7 a players competes in
Division Results at each Tournament:
Points per Event: (minimum is 50 points for finishing the tournament, DNF is always ZERO points)
Place Points
1st 200
2nd 170
3rd 140
4th 110
5th 90
6th 70
7th and Worse 50

Bonus Point Possibilities
Last 4 Events Bonus: A player who does finish in the top 6 will receive 20 bonus points in the last 4 Iowa Tour events. These 20 bonus points are not counted unless that tournament result is used as one of your 7 events counted toward your final point total.

Iowa Tour Division Top Finisher:
Division Winner – if Iowa Tour Member gets 30 bonus points for winning your division
Top Placing Iowa Tour Member (if not Division Winner) gets 10 bonus points

Also, do 1,000 points in INT have the same value as 1,000 points in ADV or 1,000 points in open to qualify for the match play finals?

seems fair to pit open players against intermediate players in match play...

I never know if you're being sarcastic or you're having a bad day and want to be an internet dick...I asked the question because it wasn't clearly stated!

Sorry no Wildcat for the finals. I want to do a central location for the finals.

Carter a 1000 points in Int is the same as 1000 in Pro or Adv. However all it will do is get you your seed. The top points earner (1 seed) will go against the lowest point earner (54 seed). 2 seed vs 53 seed, etc.

Also the bonus points at the end will count IF you place in the top 6, and IF they are used as one of your top 7 scores for the Tour.

Just checking, shame not to have the #1 course in Iowa not on the Iowa Tour. :)

Would you be interested in having the 2014 Wildcat tournament as a tour stop?

Iron Lion can still vend. It is just a $2/Player donation to E.D.G.E. I will keep you in mind when I do next year's schedule.
