Teams consist of one professional and four 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 anyone 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.
Each team will play two rounds on the Nicklaus Course and two rounds on the Weiskopf Course at the Vista Vallarta Golf Club. Pairings for the 1st two rounds will be available at check-in. Pairings for the final two rounds will be determined by position in the field. Pairings for Friday and Saturday will be posted the previous evening.
There will be four flight divisions, based on combined amateur handicaps.
Live scoring is featured throughout the event using Golf Genius. Both monitors at the golf course and online access make scoring available to participants, friends and followers at home. Live scoring assists with the excitement of the event, and it is important that each team (one player only) simply posts team scores on a hole-by hole basis during the round.
A sudden death playoff for 1st place in the 72-hole medal competition will be held immediately following the completion of the final round. The playoff will continue until a winner is declared. If weather or daylight halts the playoff at any time, the players will be deemed co-champions and share the prize monies accordingly.
All prize money will be forwarded to professionals following the event.
Team awards will be distributed to the overall team champions. There will be four flight divisions based on the combined handicaps of the amateur members of the team. In each flight, there will be awards for the overall champions. Ties will be broken using the following method: “the team with the lowest team score on any given day shall be determined the champion”.
Teams have the ability to buy-in to an event pool which pays out for skins and low teams in each flight.
