Season 6 Info
We've made some tweaks but not all of them have been implemented/tested as of this email so bear with us - plan is to have all of them in place very soon.  Lots of info to get to so let's dig right in!

Season 6 goes live:
  • www.tgctours.com:  Monday, September 9th
  • The Golf Club 2019 (events go live):  Sunday, September 8th
Members With No Tour Card
  • Includes members that signed up recently and old members that are returning after time away
  • Q-School registration will open on Monday, September 9th
  • Link to register for Q-School will likely be active on Monday, September 9th - still some loose ends to tie up before we can flip that switch on
Members With A Tour Card at the End of Season 5
  • You will continue on the same tour for the start of Season 6
  • Web.com members are now on the Korn Ferry Tour (lovely name!)
 
All Promotion/Demotion marks will be reset to start the new season
 
 
List of Changes/Tweaks
  • PGA, European and Korn Ferry Tour cuts are now Top 65+ ties
  • Web.com Tour renamed to Korn Ferry Tour
  • 3 promotion marks required to promote (previously 5) - still 5 demotion marks to demote
  • PGA can't accrue positive movement marks (promotion marks)
  • CC-Z can't accrue negative movement marks (demotion marks)
  • CC-B, CC-C & CC-D now has fast tracking for Master Club users only (ideally top 3 or 4 per event will fast track)
  • CC-Pro/Am payouts have been tweaked (lower)
  • Can no longer qualify for CC-Z out of Q-School - have to be demoted there

Challenge Circuit - Demotion/Promotion Mark Logic Tweaks

If you have no movement marks:
  • CC-A Winner = auto-promoted if using Master's Clubs or +1 movement mark if using Pro Clubs
  • CC-B thru CC-Z Winner = auto-promoted to flight above
  • CC-A only - Top 15 Master's Club users, Top 5 Pro Club Users = +1 movement mark
  • CC-B thru CC-Z - Top 10 Master's Club users, Top 10 Pro Club Users = +1 movement mark
  • 120-139 = -1 movement mark
  • 140-159 = -2 movement marks
  • 160+,DQ/WD = -3 movement marks
If you have positive movement marks:
  • CC-A Winner = auto-promoted if using Master's Clubs or +1 movement mark if using Pro Clubs
  • CC-B thru CC-Z Winner = auto-promoted to flight above
  • CC-A only - Top 15 Master's Club users, Top 5 Pro Club Users = +1 movement mark
  • CC-B thru CC-Z - Top 10 Master's Club users, Top 10 Pro Club Users = +1 movement mark
  • 101-139 = -1 movement mark
  • 140-159 = -2 movement marks
  • 160+,DQ/WD = -3 movement marks
If you have negative movement marks:
  • CC-A Winner = auto-promoted if using Master's Clubs or +1 movement mark if using Pro Clubs
  • CC-B thru CC-Z Winner = auto-promoted to flight above
  • CC-A only - Top 15 Master's Club users, Top 5 Pro Club Users = +1 movement marks
    CC-B thru CC-Z - Top 10 Master's Club users, Top 10 Pro Club Users = +1 movement marks
  • 2-100 = +1 movement mark
  • 120-139 = -1 movement mark
  • 140-159 = -2 movement marks
  • 160+,DQ/WD = -3 movement marks
Changes are in bold.

Now finishing 160th or worse, including WD/DQ, will give you -3 movement marks.

Also, if you start an event with negative movement marks and finish well you can earn a bonus movement mark (in addition to the one you get from finishing 2-100) for a total of +2 movement marks.
