Based solely on scoring points in Gaspar Invitationals and Gaspar Challenges. Want to win the Gaspar Cup? Play in more Gaspar Invitationals and Gaspar Challenges.
Points are awarded as follows:
Players who are eligible to play in the Points Game will receive 5 Gaspar Cup points PLUS 1 point for every player they beat.
Any Gaspar golfer can play in the one-on-one Gaspar Challenge matches after they have played in 2 Gaspar Invitationals and have an official Quota. 4 Gaspar Cup points for a win. 2 points for a loss. 3 points to each player for a tie. We award those who are willing to accept a Challenge, even if they do not win. You may challenge only ONE player in your group, but others in the group may challenge you. You MUST play in the same group, and the format is Match Play (no carryovers).
Game features a handicapping system based on each player's Points Quota. Take the difference between the Points Quotas for each player, and the lower Quota player receives a stroke on each hole in the amount of the difference between Quotas. For example, a player with a Points Quota of 20 plays a player with a Quota of 15. Take the difference of 5. The player with the lower Quota receives 1 stroke on the 5 hardest holes based on the scorecard. The standard wager amount is $5, with no max, but there is no requirement to wager. Be brave, pirates!
Gaspar Cup Playoffs
The top 8 ranked players in the Cup Points chase compete in the Gaspar Cup Playoff. The Cup chase will end immediately after the December Gaspar Invitational, so Cup Points from the December Invitational will count.
In the Gaspar Cup Quarterfinal matches, the top ranked player in the Gaspar Cup will play the 8th ranked player. The 2nd ranked player will play the 7rd ranked player. The 3rd ranked player will play the 6th ranked player. The 4th and 5th ranked players will make up the final match. The winners will play in the Gaspar Cup Semifinals. The winners of the two Semifinal matches will compete in the Gaspar Cup Championship. Format is match play, based on the difference in players' Points Quotas, just like a regular Gaspar Challenge. The winner of the match will be declared the Gaspar Golf Champion for 2020.
Each round in the Quarterfinals and Semifinals will require a $20 entry fee, with the $40 from each match being added to the Gaspar Cup Championship Pool. Side bets are encouraged, but not required.

The Gaspar Cup Championships will also have a prize purse equal to $1 for every player who plays in the Points Game throughout all the Gaspar Invitationals in 2020. If we average 30 Points Game players per month, that is an additional $360 that will go in the Gaspar Cup Championship Pool.
