PLAYOFFS & TIES
- If there is a tie for 1st place, there will be a sudden death playoff after all competitors have completed their rounds and signed their scorecards. The sequence of holes to be played is at the discretion of the tour. If a playoff cannot be played or completed for any reason, then all players tied for 1st will be declared champions and split the prize money. For all other ties, the monetary value of each subsequent position will be combined then divided by the number of players.
