In the case of ties, the following breaks will be used (in order):

The rankings will be used to seed posters during matchplay prediction comps. However, not all seedings will be based on rankings.
Number one seed will be the outright winner of the same comp last year (for example, whether number one or not, Sonny will be the top seed for the 2011 Masters).
Number two seed will be the outright World Championship winner.
Number three seed will be the matchplay winner of the previous year's comp.
Number four seed onwards shall be based upon the rankings.
The following seeding system will operate
A minimum of two players shall be seeded in a tournament.  this is subject to at least 4 entries.
Should 8 players enter a tournament then 4 players shall be seeded.
Should 16 players enter a tournament then 8 players shall be seeded
Should 32 or more enter a tournament then 16 players shall be seeded.
