The Commissioner's Cup debuted in 2005 as the Mulligan Tour's version of the "Ryder Cup".  The first 6 years had the Tour's Central Division playing against the Western Division.   Starting in 2011, a team of 8 players representing the defending champion's division will compete against a team of 8 from one of the other regional divisions that did not participate in the previous year.  There are 24 matches over 3 days and 54 holes of competition.  On Friday morning players are partnered and play a 9-hole fourball (best ball) match and a 9-hole foursomes (alternate shot) match.  Saturday morning continues with more team matches - 9-hole foursomes followed by 9-hole fourballs.  Then, Sunday the competition concludes after 8 singles matches.

There are 24 points available.  The team winning more of the points, wins the Commissioner's Cup.  If the teams tie with 12 points each, then the the defending champions retain the Cup.

Jeff Klipa, commissioner of the West Division, will be joined by the top-7 on the West division's Money Standings after the Western Championship.  In the event that Klipa himself is in the top-7, then the 8th ranked player will be invited.  If any players decline to play, then invitations will be extended down thru the top-15 players on the West Money List until a team of 8 is secured.  If a team of 8 is still not secured, then Klipa will make "Captain's picks" until the 8-player team is completed.

Greg Kline, commissioner of the Central Division, will be joined by the top-7 on the Central division's Money Standings after the Players Championship.  In the event that Kline himself is in the top-7, then the 8th ranked player will be invited.  If any players decline to play, then invitations will be extended down thru the top-15 players on the Central Money List.  If a team of 8 is still not secured, then Kline will make "Captain's picks" until the 8-player team is completed.

Note: Players qualifying for both teams may choose to play for either the Central or the West.
