The Gaspar Invitational is based on a points system similar to a Stableford game. The winner of the Pirate trophy every month is the player who had the highest total of points in relation to his or her assigned Points Quota. For example, a middle handicap player might be assigned a quota of 18, and if his or her points in any given month added up to 22, his or her total would be a +4. If that number was the highest value relative to their points quota, that player would win the Gaspar Invitational for that month.
Conversely, the Wench is based on the same points system, but is the player with the highest total of points BELOW his or her assigned points quota, or lowest ABOVE their quota. For example, if every player in the field exceeded their assigned quota, but only one player finished +1, they would win the Wench trophy, awarded to the worst golfer of the month.
Points Quotas fluctuate every month based on how each player performed the month prior. If you exceed your current Points Quota, your new Quota goes up by HALF the number by which you exceeded. For example, if your Quota was a 15, and you scored 19 points, you exceeded your Quota by 4 points. You will go up by HALF, which would be 2, so your NEW Points Quota would be 17 for the next Invitational you play. We round up, so if you exceed by 3, you go up 2 points. If you exceed by 5, you go up by 3 points, and so forth.
Conversely, if you fail to meet your Quota, you go down by 1 point, no matter how many points you miss your Quota. If your Quota is 22, and you get 4 points in a Gaspar Invitational, your Quota drops to 21 for the next event you play.
If you hit your Quota exacly, you remain the same. If you miss your Quota by 1/2 point or exceed by 1/2 point, you remain the same. Only players who miss or exceed by at least 1 point will have their Points Quotas move.
