What to Bring
- $100 Cash for Tournament Entry
- Food and Drinks (Beer, chips, crackers, pretzels, etc). If everyone brings something I’m sure we can all share but these things will not be provided to those who don’t bring anything… rookies you better bring some extra!
- $$$ for playing cards at night. We will likely have 2 tables this year, high rollers and low rollers since we have 16 guys.
- Sunscreen and Water
- A strong stomach, little need for sleep, and a good attitude, we expect no drama this year except for Mr. Flosi’s normal outbursts and pranks which are always welcome when respectful.
All games are played under Match Play rules, where the result of each game is determined by the number of holes won. Games are worth one point.
Coin Toss –
Winner of toss will pick first and have picks 1,4,5,8,9,12
Loser of toss will pick side US or EUR and have picks 2,3,6,7,10,11
Team up based on handicap. Handicaps will be removed when opponents are within 2 strokes. (Larry a 16 and played Roger an 18 their handicaps are now zero.)
Coin Flip, winner chooses first, alternating until all matches made. If there is a difference of more than 3 strokes between player handicaps, the handicap difference will be cut in half. (Steven is a 20 and played Marty is a 0 then Stevens handicap is now 10.)
Players may roll the ball within 6 inches of its original placement without penalty.
Any ball not found or out of bounds plays lateral from entry of out of bounds, water, etc., with a 1 stroke penalty.
No breakfast balls, no mulligans
Players score themselves, and make final decision on their own scorecard as to their score.
All puts must be putted out unless your opponent(s) agree unanimously to concede the put regardless of distance.
Anything over a double bogey does not finish the hole. (score of triple bogey) If both opponents receive score of triple bogey, they tie the hole.
Except for emergencies… Family First! Player forfeits any hole he does not attend.
“Fourball” play is a match in which each member of the two-man teams plays their own ball. Four balls are in play per hole with each of the four players competing. The team whose player has the lowest score on that hole wins the hole. Should players from each team tie for the best score, the hole is halved. Captains name the team pairings. Team USA will name first match-up. Team Europe will determine next two match-ups.
“Twoball” rules coming soon…
“Foursomes” play is a match where two golfers play together against two other golfers and each team plays one ball. The golfers play alternate shots (golfer A hits tee shot, player B hits second shot, etc.) until the hole is played out. Team members alternate playing the tee shots, with one golfer hitting odd-numbered holes, and the other hitting the even-numbered holes. Captains name the team pairings. Team Europe will name first match-up. Team USA will determine next two match-ups.
“Singles” is a match in which one player competes against another player. A player wins the match when he is up by more holes than there are holes remaining to play. Captains will determine match-ups by alternating picks. First pick will be decided by a coin toss.
