The Player of the year Finals is one round Net event where everyone plays off of Blue Tees.

Any tie for the winning position at the end of the event will proceed with a sudden death playoff. Players who qualify for the Finals may opt out of the finals, but there will be no replacement or shifting of offset strokes.
