In an effort to keep the Forum Cup Points Race updated more frequently, we will be releasing the standings every 4 weeks. Here is the update through Week 32. Also, ICYMI, we will be accepting SIM and/or virtual rounds now through the end of season 2. SIM and/or Virtual rounds are gross score only, no handicaps applied. Without further ado, here is the updated standings:

@Ben Joest, thanks for the update.  It's amazing how after so many weeks and so many golfers that two golfers can be so close to one another. 

I like the poll question too!  I went with @Javs for my guess who takes season 2.  Then again, I didn't expect that I would win the season 1 but I nosed out @snicerz by less than 38 points (less than 2 points per week).  The season long VCT is definitely a war of attrition!  

I can't wait to see how the rest of season 2 goes!   It should go down to the wire!

Thank you for the update. You all do such a great job! Quick question when does the season end?

It is set to end around the first week of April 2024.

Man, a few weeks off and some terrible play and one can sure slip in the rankings.  Well, I'm no @Javs, so quantity over quality is my motto on this tournament, hoping to get back in the top 10 by the end.  Thanks to @Ben Joest for taking the reigns and getting the season standings updated so we can measure ourselves against each other.

Currently at #16 and likely to drop a little with the winter weather and the fact that my swing is an absolute mess right now. So since this may be the highest I get I wanted to take a moment and find my OWGR counterpart at #16. And that is....

Probably not the guy I would have picked but we both have quirky swings I guess. We also both got left off the Ryder Cup team so maybe we have more in common than I originally thought.

Bear in mind, as you work through the swing issues this offseason, you can post SIM rounds to the VCT for points that count toward the season long cup race. Only caveat, there are no course handicaps for SIM rounds, only gross scores. E.g., if you shoot a 76 at whatever course that is what you post in the VCT. Good luck!

My vote is for Javs, he’s overdue for a 7 or 8 better than handicap, he hasn’t had one for a couple of weeks. Of course RoverRick could have yet another similar score. These guys scores this year have been truly astounding. Don’t know how they can do it.

Nice, Top 60. I will take it, since my season ended a month ago!   Indoor season starts tonight!   Haven't swung a club in a week and a half.  Legs suck, hips hurt, have been officiating High School Basketball games back to back nights.  I'm a mess.  Should be interesting.  Glad I will have a chance to post a score.   Is there a location to designate it as a SIM round?

There is a drop down in the form you complete to post the round, if you have any trouble let me know and I can adjust it on my end
