For the 2012 season of The Tradition Tour we will implement a Pro-Am style tournaments. We will have a handicap system that is the almost the same as this one of the USGA (we did some minor changes to account for the game). Big thanks to SkinniePost for all his hard work in making this work. How it will work : beginning with The Players Championship every tournament we play we’ll use the scores for 2 scoreboards.The first one will be the regular straight up scores,the second will involve handicaps. There will be no Pro-Ams at The Masters and the PGA Championship however: The winner of the US Open Pro-Am will be named US Amateur Champion The winner of The Open Championship will be named Amateur Champion Golfer of the year The winner of The Bing Crosby National will be named National Pro-Am Champion (if you guys are nice to RynoAid ,maybe he will create some trophies and sigs) Handicap Rules 1.Minimum of 5 official rounds need to be completed for establishing of a handicap. 2.Only the last 16 rounds will be used for calculating golfer's handicap. 3.All players handicaps will be recalculated after the conclusion of every tournament (except match play) 4.Unless major game play settings are made,the established handicaps will be rolled over in future seasons of the tour. Pro-AM Eligibility and Exclusions The following players will be excluded from participating in the Pro-Am Tournaments and their scores will only count in the TCCT Tournaments: 1.TCCT Tournament winners (exclusion will be in effect for the entire season).Pro-Am Champions still going to be eligible for participating in future Pro-Am events 2.The Top 20% of the players in the TCCT Cup Standings.Eligibility will be determined before the start of every tournament. 3.Any player with a handicap lower then the one determined my TCCT management 4.Rules 2&3 may be adjusted during the season Please Note: We are going out of our way and creating extra work for ourselves, so the more inexperienced Tiger Woods players have a chance to compete!!! It will be fairly easy for us to spot any sandbagging and other shenanigans, so please do not try to abuse the handicap system!!! As mentioned many times before,if winning at any cost is what you are looking for you do not belong on this Tour and in this community.
