These scores will be submitted to the PDGA to be rated and displayed on pdga.com.

Six events over ten consecutive weeks, and culminating in the Championship Round, the top three (3) winners will receive cash awards. Additionally, ALL players will receive “club items” such as, tags, minis, shirts, a disc or other items (to be decided by the group).

An awards ceremony and gathering will be held following the Championship Round. Location TBD.

League Scoring Formula – Highest Player Points Wins:
  • Player Points = (Sum Of Player League Round Ratings Less Skulls Player Rating For Each The First 5 Sundays Excluding The Two Worst Sundays) + (Championship Round Rating Less Skulls Player Rating)
  • Players who miss the Championship Round will receive -100 point penalty.
  • Players will receive a -100 point penalty for each round missed in the first five rounds, excluding the first two missed rounds.
  • Skulls Player Ratings are the average of all past league rated rounds within the last 12 months.
  • PDGA ratings will be substituted for players who don't have a Skulls Player Rating.
  • Players who don't have either a Skulls or PDGA rating will establish a Skulls Rating upon completion of the first sanctioned league round.
  • Both Skulls and PDGA Ratings updates will effect the points formula on a go-forward basis.
