Houston Amateur Golf Association Player of the Year

Points for Player of the Year run from one Club Championship to the next. Points for the Player of the Year start accumulating in the first event following the Club Championship and will continue through the Club Championship of the following year. The Player of the Year receives free golf with HAGA for the following year as well as a valuable gift card from HAGA's current golfing affiliate, Golfsmith. POY points are updated after every tournament and include poinst from Match Play. If you have a question about your point total, please contact david.salvati@yahoo.com.

Player of the Year Points

What Are Player of the Year Points?

For each event throughout the year, competitors will accumulate points that count towards the annual Player of the Year award at the end of the season.

Player of the year points have changed for the 2010 season. Since the objective of the POY award is to reward the most consistent play throughout the year, the Board decided that the POY needed some modification. The Board reviewed several existing point systems (FedEx Cup, Charles Schwab Cup) and adapted them for HAGA.

Points are distributed as follows: 500 for first place in each flight, 70%(rounded) of first awarded to second, 70% of second for third and so on.
