Frequently Asked Questions

You are able to choose 4 golfers in the week leading up to the tournament. The only rule is that the combined World Golf Rankings for the golfers that you select must be greater than 100. The rankings are available to view on the 'Make Entry' page.

For example:

GolferRank
Rory McIlroy6
Ernie Els12
Tiger Woods35
Branden Grace47
Total100

Only those golfers playing in the tournament will be made available for selection on the Website.

Golf Champs will use the World Golf Rankings from the Monday in the week leading up to the event. Where possible we will notify users in the event of last minute withdrawals.

Your four golfers' actual scores are added together for the duration of the tournament as follows:

GolferR1R2R3R4Total
Rory McIlroy-5-5-5-5-20
Ernie Els-4-4-4-4-16
Tiger Woods-3-3-3-3-12
Branden Grace-1-1-1-1-4
Total-13-13-13-13-52

In the event of a golfer of yours missing the cut, the score for day 3 and day 4 is determined by taking the worst score from the playing field who made the cut on those days.

Rory McIlroy-5-5-5-5-20
Ernie Els-4-4-4-4-16
Tiger Woods-3+4+10+3+14
Branden Grace-1+6+10+3+18
Total-13+1+11-3-4

We will endeavour to notify you in the event of one of your players withdrawing. You are then free to select another player, as you would normally be able to do before a tournament begins. If you have not changed your entry 1 hour before the tournament starts, we will change it on your behalf. We will automatically select the closest (lower) ranked player.

In the event of a golfer getting injured or disqualified (or withdrawing) during the tournament, he will receive the worst score made by a player who played on that day and for the remaining days. So if your player withdraws on day 1 he will receive the worst score made for all 4 days of the tournament and if your golfer withdraws on day 2 he will take his day 1 score and the worst scores from the playing field on days 2, 3 and 4.

You may enter as many pools as you like. You may not sign up for multiple accounts using different email addresses. For pools with prizes, we will request that you send through proof of ID in order to claim your prize.

The scoring is delayed by a maximum of 15 minutes

Prizes are only available to South African entrants and winners must submit proof of identification to claim their prize. The postal address must also be within South Africa. We will endeavour to get the prize delivered within 1 month of you winning.

In some instances prizes may only be awarded to players 18 years or older (e.g. alcohol)

Employees of Golf Champs and their partners are not eligible to win prizes.

In the event of a tie, the winning team will be decided based on the following criteria:

  1. The person whose team has a higher combined rank side win. For example a team that has 101 ranking points versus 100 wins
  2. If the ranking of your 4 golfers is exactly the same we then remove the lowest ranked golfer and add your highest three (and then two if this is still the same).
