Professional 72 Hole Medal Play
Professionals participate in a 72 hole medal play competition.
Teams consist of one professional and three amateur partners. Within each flight division and in the overall competition, teams will compete in a one-best-ball gross PLUS one-best-ball net competition. This requires two balls to complete each hole, as the score for any one participant can count for gross OR net (not both). The professional’s ball is part of the team format, and shall have a designated handicap of 0.
There will be four flight divisions, based on combined amateur handicaps.
All men’s handicaps are converted with the following tournament handicap chart. Male amateur participants will compete at the handicaps listed and from the tee colors noted. LOW INDEX for the previous 12 months is being used for all amateur competitors.
|Individual Index||HDCP||Tee Color|
All ladies’ use the handicap chart noted above. Ladies all play red tees.
|Men's Pro||Ladies' Pro||Men's Amateur||Ladies' Amateur|
|Black||White||Blue & White||Red|
|Gold (50 - 59)|
Age 60 and over male players, with a 12-month low index of 6.0 or higher, shall have the option of moving up from the blue tees to the white tees. If the player chooses this option, the player’s handicap will be reduced by 1.
1) The player must declare which tee he wishes to play from prior to teeing off on round #1 (inform the starter on #1 tee). He will continue to play from the same tee color throughout the event, and may not change this designation during the competition.
2) If the player is already playing from the white tees, this option does not exist, and he will remain playing from the white tees with the tournament handicap as noted.
