1. All strokeplay ranking tournaments on the BMGA tour are to be treated equally. No special treatment for the Majors, National Opens or British Masters.

2. Every player who finishes a tournament scores a minimum of 50 points.

. The maximum number of points available for each event is decided by the number of current top 16 players competing and their respective position in the rankings. The higher a player is ranked, the more points that a player carries into the tournament:

Number 1 ranked player = 200

Number 2 ranked player = 190

Number 3 ranked player = 180

Number 4 ranked player = 170

Number 5 ranked player = 160

Number 6 ranked player = 150

Number 7 ranked player = 140

Number 8 ranked player = 130

Number 9 ranked player = 120

Number 10 ranked player = 110

Number 11 ranked player = 100

Number 12 ranked player = 90

Number 13 ranked player = 80

Number 14 ranked player = 70

Number 15 ranked player = 60

Number 16 ranked player = 50

Maximum number of points available if all the top 16 compete = 2000

. The winner of the tournament/leader after the qualifying rounds receives the maximum number of points available in an event. The number of points scored by all other players is dependent on the exact number of shots they finishes behind the champion:

2 round tournament: = -50 points per shot behind the champion (100 divided by 2)

3 round tournament: = -33.3 points per shot behind the champion (100 divided by 3)

4 round tournament = -25 points per shot behind the champion (100 divide by 4)

5 round tournament = -20 points per shot behind the champion (100 divided by 5)

6 round tournament = -16.6 points per shot behind the champion (100 divided by 6)

7 round tournament = -14.3 points per shot behind the champion (100 divided by 7)

8 round tournament = -12.5 points per shot behind the champion (100 divided by 8)

9 round tournament = -11.1 points per shot behind the champion (100 divided by 9)

In other words, a player loses 100 points for every shot that their average is behind the champion’s average. If the champion averages 33.0 shots per
round (or scores 99 total shots in a 3 round tournament), then a player who scores a 34.0 average (102 total shots in a 3 round tournament) will score 100 points fewer than the champion.

5. All decimal points are rounded up to the next total number. So if a player scored 427.1 points in a tournament, it would be counted as 428 points.

. Only 8 tournaments over a 2 year period count towards a player’s total number of ranking points. The points scored from their 4 best tournament from Year 1 are halved then rounded up to the nearest full number, and added to their best 4 tournaments from Year 2 to create their total number of ranking points over a 2 year period.
