2016 Tour Championship Results and money payouts from Oct 1 & 2 at Oakview and Butlers

 
 
We were working out some details so updates and results were delayed slightly as they are finalized.
We have been in contact with the USGA for their opinion and will be talking with all PGT Committee Members to iron out the situations in question.
 
OK, here we go....
All I can say is WOW!  Golf sure does make for some interesting situations.
And right on par, this weekend was full of unpredictable situations from weather to rules.  When it rains, it pours...literally.
I believe everyone at some point in their golf careers have been involved in a "crazy" situation and may or may not have been penalized as a result.
We learn from it, use it, and hopefully accept it to improve our game; not just our scores but the overall aspect of the game.
 
*The Rules of Golf consist of a standard set of regulations and proceedures by which the sport of golf is played along with prescribed penalties for a rules infraction.
*The Decisions on the Rules of Golf is a book published by the USGA and updated to clairify questions and situations raised by the Rules.
 
The PGT does not have the luxury of having full time trained USGA officials at our disposal and because of the way we run one and two day tournaments, decsisions are made as best we can under the rules as we can determine.
We must abide by all the rules and decisions, and while we may not have all the information on hand at any given time, and may even make an incorrect call, we strive to make decisions based on what we know at the time and fix anything we can fix based on the final information learned.  It is a learning experience and we need to maintain our integrity.  Bottom line is it is all in place to "protect the Field".
 
Anyway, at the end of the day, I hope we can all look at the totality of circumstances, learn from our mistakes and experiences, take it with a grain of salt, and not let anything severely or negatively impact our lives.
With that said, the following information was determined and we reached out to the USGA for their opinion and guidance.
 
The main situation at hand was due to severe inclement weather toward the end of the day, then playable/unplayable conditions afterwards, and the appraoch of darkness for some of the final groups of the day on the final few holes, and should the 36 hole tournament be scored as it was played or should it be reduced by a certain number of holes that were played in questionable conditions.  No one player or any actions influenced the way things played out.  It was simply an interpretation of the rules.  After a lengthy discussion on how to proceed, and so many variables which led to the interpretation of the rules by the Committee (of which may or may not have been correct at the time based on the information at hand), it was determined to contact the USGA for guidance and their opinion.  The USGA got back to us today and made the following opinion....
Had their been a USGA official on scene, play would have been suspended based on course conditions after the rain delay.  Although continuing play was not recommended by the USGA, the call by players and/or committee representatives to continue to play was allowed by the rules of golf and all 18 hole scores should stand as is.
After the round was completed, we are not permitted to retroactively change the outcome of that round.  
 
The PGT Committee members agreed to follow the USGA opinion.  We'll put some additional information on the Bulletin Board about the situation with the specific rule numbers and decisions so everyone can see how this is the correct and fair outcome.  Next season we will strive to have the Tour Championship on the same course for both days in order to make a similar situation easier to resolve.
Thanks for your patience and we appologize for the inconvenience and if it affected anyone more than another.
