We recommend utilizing a seven-round standard serpentine draft with four owners (or a five-round serpentine draft with five owners or six owners). For the seven-round format, three men and three women must be selected with one additional “wild card” of either gender at each owner’s discretion; for the five-round format, two men and two women must be selected with one additional “wild card” of either gender at each owner’s discretion. Tournaments to be utilized will be the Grand Slam events in 2017. For each of these five tourneys, point selection is as follows: 3 points for making the quarterfinals, an additional 5 points for making the semifinals, an additional 7 points for making the finals and an additional 10 points for winning the tournament.

We recommend utilizing a seven-round standard serpentine draft with five owners (or a six-round standard serpentine draft with six owner or a five-round standard serpentine draft with seven owners).
Because there are only a handful of tournaments that include a cross-section of the world’s best golfers, we urge you to use only these events for your league’s scoring system. In so doing, the emphasis is kept on the skill level of the golfers as opposed to rewarding those golfers who thrive in the majority of events with the weaker rosters of competitors. This method uses the “four major tournaments” and the eight “near major” tournaments. These are the events utilized, in the order that they appear on the schedule, with the major tournaments in bold: AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am (February 9-12), WGC-Mexico (March 2-5), Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill (March 16-19), WGC-Dell Match Play Championship (March 22-26 — NOTE: award these points as follows — players eliminated in the quarterfinals get 8th place points based on the below scoring system, players eliminated in the semifinals get 4th place points, the player eliminated in the finals gets 2nd place points and the player who wins the championship gets 1st place points), The Masters (April 6-9), The Players Championship (May 11-14), Memorial Tournament (June 1-4), U.S. Open (June 15-18), The British Open (July 20-23), WGC-Bridgestone Invitational (August 3-6), PGA Championship (August 10-13), The Tour Championship (September 21-24).
Scoring for the 8 “near major” tournaments is as follows: 90 points for 1st place, 76 points for 2nd place, 60 points for 3rd place, 50 points for 4th place, 40 points for 5th place, 30 points for 6th place, 26 points for 7th place, 20 points for 8th place, 16 points for 9th place and 10 points for 10th place. These points should be awarded also to the Top 10 finishers in the final Fed Ex Cup standings.
Scoring for the 5 major tournaments is as follows: 135 points for 1st place, 114 points for 2nd place, 90 points for 3rd place, 75 points for 4th place, 60 points for 5th place, 45 points for 6th place, 39 points for 7th place, 30 points for 8th place, 24 points for 9th place and 15 points for 10th place.
