Tournament bowlers accumulate points throughout the SOBA season based on their final standing in individual events.
For instance a bowler might get 2200 points for a 1st place finish, 1360 points for a 10th place finish, or 260 points for a 50th place finish, etc.
You can see the full SOBA Points Breakdown here for more on how many points each place earns.
After each event on the season tour concludes points are awarded to bowlers based on their respective finish(es) and added up to create the season’s points list.
This points list is used for the awards presentation at the season’s end and for the selection of bowlers who receive a bye into the annual Grand Finals event at the end of the season.
