General registration is open for the 2015 BMG Cup Series. The three amateur tournaments are conducted by Flagstick Golf Magazine (Bauder Media Group) and presented by Nike Golf.
The BMG CUP Series was formed as a FedEX Cup style points series for amateur golfers. The amateur golf series is made up of three events beginning with the Flagstick Shootout played at Smuggler’s Glen Golf Course, moves to the Flagstick Open at eQuinelle and finishes with the Flagstick BCC Open at Brockville Country Club.
Players must participate in two of the three Series event to be eligible for the season point title and the BMG CUP. In the season opening Flagstick Shootout the field is equal as there are no flights therefore only overall points are awarded. The Flagstick Open and the Flagstick BCC Open are full A,B,C,D flighted events and points are awarded for a players position in the field. This format ensures that players will have an opportunity to win the BMG CUP regardless of their flight.
In order to participate in any BMG CUP Series Event in 2015 you must first register for the BMG CUP Series. This is done through the very efficient and newly upgraded GolfGenius portal. Once you have registered to become a member of the BMG CUP Series you will be able to register for any of the three events as registration opens for those events.
As always the Flagstick Shootout is a limited field invitational so players will be chosen by the committee based on past performances, both in BMG Series events and in other tournament appearances, as well as playing ability and a number of other factors.
Registration for the Flagstick Shootout itself begins Monday, March 16th.
