Euro Tour Rules

  • Best 4 out of 9 Tournament results will count towards final Tour standings in every division. Players with less than 3 tournaments played are ineligible for pay out (will still receive trophies).

Top 10 MPO, Top 5 FPO, MPM and MPG and Top 3 FPM will be awarded with value spread across divisions based on number of competitors with at least 3 tournaments played in each division.
