POTAWATOMI CUP STANDINGS: The Island Resort Championship is the third of four Potawatomi Cup events. Earlier this year, the Tour announced the formation of the Potawatomi Cup in conjunction with the four events sponsored by Potawatomi nations’ casinos. A total of $40,000 in bonus money will be awarded, with $8,500 available at each Potawatomi Cup event, and an additional $6,000 going to the Potawatomi Cup winner.
As you will notice below, all points are cumulative based on performance at all four events.
Below is a look at the Potawatomi Cup points leaders through two events.

How the Potawatomi Cup Points System Works? At each of the four tournaments listed above, players will receive points based on their on-course performance in the tournament. At the conclusion of each event, $8,500 in cash prizes will be distributed among the top-5 finishers in cumulative points up through that event. For example, following the first event, the players in first through fifth received the following payouts, respectively: $3,000, $2,500, $1,500, $1,000 and $500. At the conclusion of the second event, the points were recalculated through the first two tournaments, and the top-5 finishers in cumulative points received the same amounts. Therefore, since Min Seo Kwak maintained the top position in the standings through the first two events, she collected $6,000. At the conclusion of the fourth event, the person who has secured the most points will be awarded a $6,000 bonus and the Potawatomi Cup. In total, $40,000 will be awarded during the four weeks.
