The top 50 players from the Season, will be eligible to play in the Flinders Cup Playoffs. In the event that any top qualifying players are unable or chooses not to play in the opening Playoff event, the field will be shortened, and no alternates will be added.

The Flinders Cup Playoffs will feature a progressive cut through the first two events to determine the final 20 players who qualify for the TOUR Championship.
