If 2 players are tied for second and then 2 are tied with the "3rd highest score" even though yahoo says the 2 tied with the 3rd highest score are tied for 4th they are really 3rd correct? ANd both should get the extra 5 bonus points right?
Really ?? If 2 guys are tied for 2nd in the tournament they combine the earnings of 2nd & 3rd place and split it 50/50 and the next player gets 4th place money.. Therefore, the 1st place player gets 20 pts. and the next 2 tied for 2nd and receivet 10 bonus pts. each. The next finisher is 4th place so no 3rd place bonus points available....Now back to studying for my GED test this week !!

See if that logic applied then they would split 10 + 5 points or 15 points. So in reality while I get the fact that no points are awarded it still doesnt seem right. Again technically they are tied for 3rd place with the 3rd lowest scores!
Great question. It's my understanding that no 3rd place bonus points will be awarded. Both 2nd place finishers will receive 10 bonus points. I believe Yahoo uses the PGA leaderboard for positions. Therefore the 4th place finishers will not receive 3rd place bonus points. The same finish occurred in both week 2 at the Sony and week 3 at the Hope. I don't beleive any bonus points were awarded to the 4th place finishers.

The single DUMBEST question ever posted on yahoo!!!!!!
1st = 20
2nd = 10
3rd = 5
tell me one time in the life of yahoo golf that a person got bonus points for 4th!!!
That would be like asking if the 34th place finisher got bonus points if he barks like a dog and hikes his leg to take a leak.
