How are points earned?
Players in all singles stroke-play PDGA tournaments held in Massachusetts from Welcome to the Jungle (April 23-24) to September 30, 2022, will accrue points towards the 2022 “Sunstein Series” standings. Only points a player’s top five points-results during this time period will count towards their total. Points will only count towards a player’s total if they finish within the top 25 places in the division (except for the Sunstein Open at 501, which will include points for all finishers).
Designated events will count as point-multipliers and for these events the points awarded will count double or triple in the Sunstein Series standings.
