Purses And Payouts
Winnings Distribution: Checks will be mailed out approximately 3 days after the conclusion of an event. Direct deposit will be made available to members (beginning in the 2018-2019 season). Players registered for the following tournament will have their checks held and distributed at the next event. No checks will be written for a player if they have not provided the tour with the appropriate tax form. Players without a Social Security Number or Tax ID will be subject to 30% tax witholdings. Checks will be mailed to the players address given on their Registration Form unless an Alternate Address Form is filled out.
Checks will be voided after 180 days and will not be reissued. If a player needs a check reissued within the 180 days, a $35 fee will be deducted from the check’s total to cover the replacement check and place a “stop-payment” on the previous check.
