Playoffs Start February 17th

     You heard the man... It's time to grow your beards cause we're headin’ to the Post Season!  How does it all work, you ask?  Well, this nifty Q & A that should explain it perfectly;

League Playoffs  -  Q & A

Q: What is the format?

A: The format of our Playoffs is similar to the FedExCup format, yet is still accompanied by the participation points.  Simply stated, each team competes against the other teams for a piece of the weekly purse, which is represented by points.  The lower your team's score, the more points your team will earn for that particular week.


Q: What happens to the points my team earned during the regular season?

A: Teams will start the playoffs with the same number of points they accumulated during the Regular Season.


Q: How are the points distributed during the playoffs?

1st...      12 Points

2nd...       9 Points  

3rd...        6 Points  

4th...        3 Points

*  IMPORTANT: The points will increase for each week of the playoffs


Q: Will participation still count?

A: Absolutely! Participation Points will be added to the Performance Points listed above.


Q: What does it all mean, man?

A: The team in 1st place at the conclusion of the Playoffs will be our League Champions!  A distinction that admittedly carries little weight out in the real world.  Beyond that, not a whole hell of a lot.


Q: How long will the playoffs run?

A: The playoffs will run for four weeks starting on February 17th.


That is all,

2019 / 2020 Simulator League

     Welcome to the Whisky Run Simulator League Website!  We are excited to announce we’ll once again be using our online scoring system for this league. 


      For the regular season, teams will compete in head-to-head matches.  Teams that win their match will earn 10 points, 5 points per team if there is a tie and 0 for the team if they lose but, and this is important – supporting your team is a big part of this format  – teams receive 1 participation point for each team member who posts a score as long as they (the team) reach the minimum number of players required (6). A team score will be determined by the total of the six (6) lowest net scores posted by the team.  Players that don't count toward the team total can almost assuredly count on being singled out and suitably labeled on both the TV and this very website.  They will, however, earn a valuable participation point for the team and, of course, they can always step it up and count the following week. 

     One of the hi-lights of the program is the actual real-time scoring.  As the staff enter the scores, the standings, individual performances (good/bad), skins and a bunch of other cool stuff is updated in real-time online.  Another bonus is the program actually maintains a separate league handicap so you know it will be fair for everyone.  Handicaps are automatically updated and applied based solely on your league scores.  That, my friends, is pretty good.

     Like last year, we'll start with three warm-up rounds.  These rounds will help to determine a reasonably accurate league handicap or the new players and it will freshen the league handicap of those who played last year.  The warm-up rounds should be completed by Sunday January 5th.  The official team competition will begin on Monday January 6th.  Players have the entire week to complete their league round.  Example; Week One is dated as January 6th but players have until Sunday January 12th post their league round.  Week Two begins on Monday January 13th and runs through to Sunday January 19th.  Here is the schedule;

Warm-Up Round: Castle Pines back 9
Warm-Up Round: St. Andrews New front 9
Warm-Up Round: Spyglass Hill front 9

Team Competition Schedule

Week One - January 6th - January 12th: Mauna Key back 9
Week Two - January 13th - January 19th: Spyglass Hill back 9
Week Three - January 20th - January 26th: Torrey Pines front 9
Week Four - January 27th - February 2nd: Troon North front 9
Week Five - February 3rd - February 9th: Pebble Beach front 9
Week Six - February 10th - February 16th: Spanish Bay back 9
Week Seven - February 17th - February 23rd: Banff Springs front 9
Week Eight - February 24th - March 1st: Pinehurst #2 back 9
Week Nine - February March 2nd - March 8th: Bayhill front 9
