    Any first place ties  will be determined by a scorecard play-off using the following method as recommended by the USGA.

    Scorecard Play-Off Procedure:
    The winner will be based on the best score for the last round. If the tying sides have the same score for the last round or if the competition consists of a single round, the winner will be determined based on the score for holes 10-18, holes 13-18, holes 16-18 and finally the 18th hole. If there is still a tie, then the last six holes, three holes and final hole of the first nine holes will be considered in turn. If the round is less than 18 holes, the number of holes used in matching scores may be adjusted. For net competition, if the last nine, last six, last three holes scenario is used, one-half, one-third, one-sixth, etc. of the handicaps should be deducted from the score for those holes.

    Shamble scores are not eligible to post for handicap purposes.

    Shamble. All team members tee off and the best drive is selected. All golfers play their own ball into the hole from the selected drive (must use at least two drives from each player). For scoring purposes, the two best net scores on each hole will be counted. 85% of Course Handicap (Maximum Course Handicap of 40). Four separate flights will be determined based on Team Handicap (September 16 Handicap Revision).
