  • They decide positions 1 to 6. It is possible to share any positions expect for 1st place.

Play offs

  • There will only be playoff when relevant for who advances in each round, and for the 1st place in The Final Round.
  • Play offs will be held at the 18th hole as a shortened hole. A “Play Off Zone”, will be marked on the 18th fairway.

The concept of the Master of the Monster

  • The Porsche Nord Course at Green Eagle Golf Club is a long golf course, and it will be played very long this week. Hence the Title “Master of the Monster”. 


  • Players losing in 1st round Match Play = 37th place (Missed Cut)
  • Players losing in Quarter Finals Match Play = 19th place
  • Players losing in Semi Final Group Play = 7th place
  • All six players in the Final will decide places 1 – 6 between them
