The Calvin Peete Cup

The Calvin Peete Series operates a yearlong points system similar to the PGA, LPGA, and other major golf tours. The chart below lists the various ways a player can earn points and the quantity awarded for each accomplishment. This points system will be used to determine the 12 players in each age division that will be invited to compete in the season-ending Tour Championship. At the conclusion of the Tour Championship, the participant with the most points in each age division will be presented the “Calvin Peete Cup.”

NEW FOR 2021: The final three events of the year and the Tour Championship will be the Calvin Peete Cup Playoffs. The first playoff event will award double points for first, second, and third place (200, 100, and 50 points, respectively). Additionally, points award in each subsequent playoff event will double the previous event (i.e. first place in the second event will be awarded 400 points, 800 for the third, and 1,600 for the fourth).

ABOUT CALVIN PEETE: A renowned professional golfer, Calvin Peete won 12 PGA TOUR events between 1979 and 1986, including The PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass in 1985. Along with being one of the most prolific winners of the decade, Peete was the straightest hitter on the PGA Tour winning the driving accuracy title for ten consecutive years (1981-1990). The PLAYERS Championship victory combined with being a member of the 1983 and 1985 U.S. Ryder Cup teams earned him the position of being the most successful African American golfer until the emergence of Tiger Woods. Mr. Peete was a resident of Jacksonville and passionate about sharing golf with the children in his community. That passion was integral in the success of The First Tee of Jacksonville which now serves as First Tee – North Florida.
