The Field for each tournament shall not exceed 84. In the event that the tournament in question is oversubscribed, the field will be decided based on the African Tour ranking. The field will be decided based on time / date that each entry was received (i.e. earlier entrants will receive priority), subject to payment being received on time (2.f).
RANKING OF POINTS AND PRIZE MONEY
Points will be awarded according to the prize money value of each player. The African Tour ranking positions will be determined by the number of points accrued throughout the Tour season.
Prize money will be distributed in accordance with the official PGA breakdown of the purse at each event. The breakdown thereof is available through www.theafricantour.com. In the event that a player is disqualified, he shall not be entitled to claim prize money for that tournament.
THE TOURNAMENT FORMAT
Each tournament will be a stroke play event held over 54/72 holes.
The cut will be made after 36 holes. Top-40 players and ties.
In the event of a tie for first place, a play-off will take place to determine the winner. The holes to be used for the playoff will be communicated in advance, at each tournament. If a play-off involves more than two players, those players, other than the winner, will be deemed to have tied for second place regardless of their score in the play-off. If a play-off fails to determine a winner due to weather conditions or for any other reason, all players will be deemed to have won and will share any associated monies or points.
