How it Works
It all boils down to your overall UCOP performance - the better you do, the fewer points you pick up, with 1 point for winning a tournament, 2 for finishing second, 3 for third and so on down the field of each event in which you play. Ultimately, the fewer points you collect during the series, the higher your position on the Leaderboard.
For those tournaments in which you do not take part, your points will be the number of players in that event plus 1. For example, missing a 100-player tournament will see 101 points added to your running total. Note that a player’s worst (i.e. highest) 15-point scores will be discarded when determining overall scores.
Tournament of Champions
Winning any UCOP event earns a place in the Tournament of Champions (16th February 2020) which will boast over €2,750 in prizes, including a €1,550 Online Tournament Tickets Package for the winner!
