Which scores count towards your League position?
Rest of the World Club Swingers
The six best stroke play, stableford* or Match Play submissions count as qualifying points for the competition and towards Leaderboard positions.
*If submitting a Stableford score, you must provide details of the gross score on each hole so we may calculate any amendment to the Stableford points based on your Swingers handicap.

Total Golf League Points
The player's total golf league points are the sum of the six best qualifying points. To qualify for the final, you must have submitted six valid scores.
Match Play Points
Match Play wins are awarded 2 points, Match Play halves (draws) are awarded 1 point.
Corporate & Society Days
Please note in Season 9, only Swingers Society Day and Flying Club Gold Member Day scores can count towards your final golf league points. All other Society or Corporate Day scores can be submitted through the Earn Bonus Points section to qualify for 1 bonus point.
How do bonus points affect your League position?
Total bonus points are used to decide a player's league placing where golf league points are tied.
If you are tied on golf league points and bonus points, your final leaderboard position will be determined by the number of verified scores entered. If you are tied on golf league points, bonus points, and number of verified scores entered, the value of your first score will determine your position.

Who qualifies for the Final?
At the end of our Season the top 12 Rest of the World Swingers and the top 10 European Swingers* will compete in a Rest of the World v Europe Team Final at Turnberry Isle Hotel & Resort in Miami, Florida between 5 and 8 November 2012.
The final will consist of foursomes on day one, fourball matches on day two and Singles matches on day three, where one point will be awarded for a match won, and half a point for a match drawn. Scores from all three days will be combined to determine the overall winning team.
