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.
10 Gaspar Cup points for a win. 5 points for a loss. 8 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 anyone, but you may only challenge one player in a round of golf. Another player may challenge you, however. You must play in the same group, and the format is Match Play. Game features a handicapping system based on each player's Points Quota. Take the difference between the Points Quotas for each player, and multiply by 75%. For example, a player with a Points Quota of 20 plays a player with a Quota of 15. Take the difference of 5, multiply by 75%, and the handicap is 3.75, rounded up to 4 strokes. The player with a Quota of 15 receives 1 stroke on the 4 hardest holes based on the scorecard. Minimum wager amount is $5, with no max. Be brave, pirates! Please see the Gaspar Challenge page for more rules.
Gaspar Cup Championship
In this inaugural season, we will play an abbreviated Gaspar Cup Championship, with the top 4 ranked players in the Cup Points chase playing 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.
The top ranked player in the Gaspar Cup will play the 4th ranked player. The 2nd ranked player will play the 3rd ranked player. The winners will play in the Gaspar Cup Championship before January 1st 2020. Format is match play, based on 75% of 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 2019.
The semi-final matches will require a minimum of a $10 wager, and the Championship round will be a minimum of a $20 wager.
The Gaspar Cup Champion will receive a prize purse equal to $1 for every player who plays in the Points Game in the October, November and December Gaspar Invitationals. We will begin the 2020 season by committing $1 per Points Game player per Gaspar Invitational as well, so the 2020 Gaspar Cup Championship should be worth a nice prize, probably worth $300-500 or more.
