              Yeah, why 100pts for last?? This will seriously devalue winning a tournament. 1st place for a tourney with only 30 players in your division gets you 130 pts (or 129 for beating 29?) and 30th place in a tourney with 60 players in your division gets you...............wait for it................130 points!

              This needs to be changed.

                I'll let Bob address it more if he likes, but this is the same points system they use for the INWS and it's proven to work well there. I haven't seen a points system yet that can be considered to be "perfect". You've got two basic formats, awarding points from the top down, or bottom up. Each way has its benefits and drawbacks.

                  There's always the proportional system:

                  1st always gets 100 pts
                  last always gets 10 pts
                  other positions awarded pts proportionally:

                  3 players: 1st = 100 points, last = 10 points, 2nd = 55 points
                  10 players: 1st = 100 points, last = 10 points, 2nd = 90 points, 3rd = 80 points, etc.
                  19 players: 1st = 100 points, last = 10 points, 2nd = 95 points, 3rd = 90 points, etc.
                  91 players: 1st = 100 points, last = 10 points, 2nd = 99 points, 3rd = 98 points, etc.

                  Want the formula? Ask and you shall receive.....

                    What are some of the drawbacks to a top down system. I always thought it was awfully good.

                      The biggest drawback to a top down system is that the winner gets the same number of points regardless of the size of the field.

                        It doesn't seem fair to me... not that I have any better ideas.

                          why not just use the pdga points system?

                            I see. I had not considered that before, probably because as long as each tournament in a series is apporximately the same size, the problem won't manifest itself. I guess this is all the more reason to have every tournament in the Wa Series be a two pool, two course tournament.

                            I still think the point scheme should be changed to top down because that drawback is minor in comparison to the drawback of a bottom up scheme. Also, there is something to be said about the fact that winning the series should be about winning tournaments.

                              Do you mean the NT points system? That one is top down.
