Tie Breakers

BVGC has adopted the USGA System for resolving stroke play tournament scores that end in a tie. If at the conclusion of a tournament two or more identical scores are submitted, and it is not practical to conduct a playoff, the following tie breaking system is used. Comparing (net) scorecards starting with the back 9, back 6 (#13 to #18), back 3 (#16 to #18), and then a hole by hole score comparison starting backwards from #18 shall be used.

If a tie still exists then the prize fund will be split evenly between the players.
