  10. The Pool Administrator may rule an eligible golfer to be ineligible if he deems it to be in the best interest of the Pool. This year no golfers have been ruled ineligible.

  11. Each team entered is eligible for 11 different pools: the main pool plus 10 monthly pools (Oct. & Nov. 2021, and Jan. through August 2022).
  12. $110.00 from each entry fee is allocated to the main pool and $20.00 is allocated to the monthly pools.
  13. In the main pool, approximately 16% of the teams entered will receive a cash prize at the end of the season. The first place finisher will receive approximately 15% of the money allocated to the pool. The exact number of teams receiving prizes and the dollar amount of each prize are based on the total number of teams entered. This information will be published right after the entry deadline passes. You can select the Prize Allocation menu item to view the allocation.
  14. There will be three winners in each monthly pool. They will receive approximately 50%, 30%, and 20% of the money available, respectively. The exact amounts will be published right after the entry deadline passes. You can click the Prize Allocation menu item to view the monthly allocation.
  15. A tournament is included in a given monthly pool if it is scheduled to end in that month. For example, if a tournament starts on May 28th and ends on June 1, then it will be included in the June pool, not the May pool.
  16. As an added bonus, the team finishing last in the main pool will receive a free entry into the 2022/2023 pool.
  17. All entry fees collected, except for approximately $300.00, will be paid back out in prizes. The money held back is used to cover the free entry given to the last place team from the prior year, website hosting fees, banking fees, and general administrative expenses.
  18. The cash payments for all prizes, including the monthly prizes, will not be distributed until after the season-ending event in August. All prize values are stated in Canadian funds.
  19. Cash payments to participants not residing in Canada will be converted to their local currency at the going exchange rate.

  20. The first two events of the 2021/2022 season, the Fortinet Championship and the Sanderson Farms Championship will NOT be included in the Pool. The first tournament counting in the Pool is the Shriiners Children's OPen, which starts on Thursday October 7, 2021. Once that tournament starts, your team is frozen, no changes will be allowed after that.
  21. The Pool will end on August 21, 2022, with the conclusion of the BMW Championship. Even though the Tour Championship, which is played the following week, is the last official event of the season, it is not included in the Pool because it is only played to determine the distribution of the FedEx Cup bonus money. There is no other prize money allocated to the event.
  22. You can enter as many teams as you like, however, no two of your teams may contain the exact same 10 golfers.
  23. Team ownership may be shared between 2 or more individuals.
  24. Nicknames will be used to identify teams in the standings, unless one is not given. In that case the name of the team owner will be used.

  25. The standings list will be updated weekly and posted on the golf pool website.
