TOURNAMENT AWARDS INFORMATION

Player awards for each tournament will be handed out at the completion of the division’s final round. Award ceremonies will be conducted near the scoring area unless specified by tournament staff. Players are asked to remain after their round to receive their award, regardless of place. Awards will not be mailed out to players that decide to leave before the award ceremony. 

Note, in the event of a tie for a specific awarded place, only players present will be eligible for the playoff (either on-course or scorecard). Any player that is involved in the tie and has left the tournament grounds will, by default, lose any playoff.
