Score to Par – this is a fantasy sports scoring method that assigns fantasy points based on a golfer’s raw score to par. CoinRoster’s Score to Par scoring method is dynamic as it assigns a score of zero for the player in last place and all other fantasy points are based off the worst place score. So if the worst place golfer is +5 and the leading golfer is -5, then the last place golfer will have a fantasy score of zero, and the first place golfer will have a fantasy score of 10.
