OGA Net Performance Points Adjustment (KTPS)

The OGA Tournament Committee has instituted a policy by which they reserve the right to adjust the Course Handicap of any competitor in future competitions. This Policy is based on a modification of the Knuth Tournament Performance Points System (KTPS) as licensed from Dean Knuth.

A reduction of a competitor’s Course Handicap will be based on the following criteria:  

High finishes in any Net portion of a 36 hole OGA championship with 81 participants or more in a division during a two year period will be awarded points accordingly: 1st = 12, 2nd = 10, 3rd = 8, 4th =  6, 5th = 4.

High finishes in any Net portion of a 36 hole OGA championship with 40 - 80 participants in a division during a two year period will be awarded points accordingly: 1st = 8, 2nd = 6, 3rd = 4, 4th = 2.

High finishes in any Net portion of a 36 hole OGA championship with 20 - 39 participants in a division during a two year period will be awarded points accordingly: 1st = 6, 2nd = 4, 3rd = 2.

High finishes in any Net portion of a 36 hole OGA championship with 1 - 19 participants in a division during a two year period will be awarded points accordingly: 1st = 4, 2nd = 2.

High finishes in any Net portion of an 18 hole OGA competition (OGA Tour – Individual Series) during a one year period will be awarded points accordingly: 1st = 3, 2nd = 2, 3rd = 1.

High finishes in any Net portion of an 18 hole OGA competition (OGA Tour – Partner Series) during a one year period will be awarded points accordingly: 1 – 9 teams 1st = 3, 10 – 19 teams 1st = 3, 2nd = 2, and 20+ teams 1st = 3, 2nd = 2, 3rd = 1.

Any contestant who accumulates 17 points over the stated period may have their Course Handicap reduced by 1 stroke for use during the competition.

Any contestant who accumulates more than 17 points during the stated period will have their Course Handicap reduced an additional 1 stroke for each additional two points accumulated.
