The Honors Cup is played annually pitting the 12 best amateurs of that year agaisnt the 12 best professional of that year, both teams being determined via a points system of various pre-determined tournaments.
The amateurs team is determined as follows: Both members of the winning four-ball team in the championship division recieve an automatic berth, the winner of the amateur championship recieves an automatic berth, the winner of the opening tournament championship division and the winner of the closing tournament championship division. The next five players are determined through a points system for the amateur championship, championship division, opening tournament, championship division and the closing tournament, championship division (as long as closing tournament is able to be held before honors cup). Points are calculated as follows: 20 points for runner-up, 19 points for 3rd place, 18 points for fourth place, etc. Best five points total for those four events gain a berth. The remaining two spots will be captain and co-captain choices. As director of the amateur association I am automatically the captain of the amateurs team and choose a co-captain each year.
