1.08 Reduction of Field Size (Cuts)

Last updated: Thursday, June 8, 2023 - 18:31

  1. The field may be reduced (cut) for a semi-finals or finals at the discretion of the Tournament Director, provided that is announced prior to opening player registration for the event. The only exception may be due to the PDGA Mid-Event Weather Suspension & Cancellation Guidelines Policy being invoked to finish an event.
  2. Unless otherwise announced in advance by the Tournament Director, all ties for a semi-final or final cut will be broken by the use of a tiebreaker (see 1.09).
  3. Making the cut line at or above the payout line is required so that all payout positions who make the cut get paid. If additional players below the payout line made the cut due to ties, only those players remaining at least tied for a payout position would get paid. The only exception may be due to the Severe Weather Policy being is when the PDGA Mid-Event Suspension and Cancellation Policy is invoked to finish an event (see PDGA Mid-Event Weather Suspension & Cancellation Guidelines Policy).
  4. Any eligible player who chooses not to participate in a semi-final or final shall receive ranking and cash or prizes equal to finishing last in the remaining field.
  5. Consolation rounds for players not making a tournament cut are discouraged as consolation rounds are post-event and are NOT official, and will NOT be reported or affect the rankings of the players in the tournament. Any such consolation rounds may NOT affect the scheduling of official tournament rounds.
