Most Improved Player Award

A player's season will start from their first Tour event of the season and end at their last Tour event of the season. Players must play at least 5 events to qualify. 

The formula for calculating the most improved player has been established by Golf Canada as equitable in gauging the improvement of players encompassing the entire spectrum of handicaps and is calculated as follows:

Start of Season Handicap Factor + 12 divided by End of Season Handicap Factor + 12

eg. A player's season starts at Coppinwood when their Handicap Factor is 5.8. At the Tour Championship, the player's last event of the season, their Handicap Factor has gone down to 4.5. The player's Improvement Factor is 1.079.

5.8 + 12 = 17.8 = 1.079 (calculated to three decimal places)

4.5 + 12 = 16.5
