Net Score

Net score is the player's score after handicap strokes have been subtracted from the player's gross score. At each Tour event, using your net score, players will have the opportunity to compete against players in the entire field. This means that, even if you don't place in the top three of your Flight in gross score, you can still do well relative to your own handicap against players in the total field. Another of the many ways to win by playing on Tour!

Net score ties will be decided by matching cards (see The Rules of Golf, Appendix I, Section 10-C) on the basis of the best gross score for the last nine holes. If the players involved in a tie have the same gross score for the last nine, then the last six holes, last three holes and finally the 18th hole will be used to determine the winner. If the players are still tied, scores for the front nine will be used.eg: At the start of the Coppinwood event, a B Flight player's Handicap Factor is 12.4. The player's course handicap, from the blue tees is 14: 12.4 [factor] x 126 [slope] /113 [average slope].

The player's gross score at the event is 87. The player's net score for the event is 73: 87 [gross score] – 14 [course handicap] = 73 [net score].

Per Event Draw Prizing

Gross and Net Order of Merit

The GTA AM Tour also features season-long Myrtle Beach Gross and Net Order of Merit competitions in which points are awarded to every player, based on the order of finish in each event (see chart below for Gross prizing). Overall Champions in each Division will be crowned at the Air Canada Tour Championship (October 1&2, 2017) and will be based on the player's BEST 10 of 25 EVENTS. Points awarded at the season Majors will be increased by 50% and will be doubled for the Air Canada Tour Championship. In the event of a tie, Order of Merit places will be decided by the player's 11th BEST EVENT. If still tied, the player who has competed in most events will be awarded the place. Players are ineligible to win low net if they have won a gross prize.

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
