Series points from a player’s top five National Tour finishes from the first seven events plus the points from the Vibram Open will determine the 2013 PDGA Tour Series Champion.
Points are split across tied places. With the exception of the Men’s And Women’s Series Champions, the bonuses for all ties will be divided evenly. Point standings will be displayed in whole numbers, with fractions maintained for the purposes of tiebreaking.
In the case of a tie for the Series Champion the following tie-breakers will be utilized:
- Sum of points at all National Tour events.
- Head-to-head record in all National Tour events.
- Head-to-head record at the Vibram Open.
- Sudden death playoff
The PDGA would like to extend our gratitude and thanks to Vibram for sponsoring the National Tour Points Series and the Drive for the Championships.
