Ranking Points

Ranking Points

For non-Major Events
Ranking Points  =  Points  x  SOF  [x  Load Factor]
Each player finishing outside the top-20 is credited with 30 Bonus Points (not subject to adjustment for SOF or Load Factor) provided they do not Nil Return (‘NR’), withdraw (‘WD’) or become disqualified (‘DQ’).

For Major Events
Ranking Points  =  Points  x  2
Each player finishing outside the top-20 is credited with 60 Bonus Points provided they do not NR, WD or DQ.


Fractional Ranking Points are rounded to the nearest whole number.
