“The players are having a blast so far this season” remarked tour director Blane Freytag. “Our goal is to provide fun, fair, competitive individual stroke play golf tournaments utilizing NET scoring (using your MPGT Tournament Handicap) to level the playing field. Everyone has an equal shot at winning in our tournaments. In fact, the average winning score of our 20 flight champions at our first 4 events was a NET 2 over par 74!”

Tournament format is individual net stroke play, with USGA rules in effect. A software program and web page tracks each player’s tour handicap to ensure participants are placed in their proper flight. Player tour handicaps will be monitored throughout the season to field the most competitive flights possible. “We have a unique anti-sandbagging system to weed out the baggers. Come play on the fairest competitive tour in the SoCal area” added Freytag.

At each event, the top golfers in all flights win Visa gift cards from the prize pool that is generated in each flight. All participants also earn points toward “Player of the Year” honors in their flight. A Fed Ex style playoff covering the final three events adds to the excitement.
