PLAYERS

Format

The NWAGA Seniors Championship and the 49ers Eclectic Tournament run concurrently.

The Seniors Championship is a gross 54-hole individual stroke play competition flighted after 36-holes.

The 49ers Eclectic Tournament is an optional 36-hole partner competition conducted during rounds 1 & 2 that takes the best net scores a side has made on each hole over the course of rounds 1 & 2. For example, on hole one in round one, players A & B, who are partners, both have a score of net 5. During the second round on hole one, player A makes a net 3 and player B makes a net 5. Therefore, their score in the eclectic tournament for hole one would be a net 3.

FLIGHTS
In the Seniors Championship, flights of approximately 12 players will be created after 36-holes based on gross score.

HANDICAP ALLOWANCE
Based on August 1 Handicap Revision. An individual’s Playing Handicap in the Eclectic tournament is 75% of their Course Handicap. Maximum Individual Handicap Index is 40.4. The Seniors Championship is not handicapped.

PAIRINGS
For the first round of competition, eclectic sides are paired based on combined Handicap Index with the lowest Team Handicaps beginning play on hole 1. Individual players, not participating in the Eclectic Tournament, will be paired together based on Handicap Index or with an Eclectic side if there are an odd number of sides.

For the second round, eclectic sides will be paired based on first day eclectic scores with the lowest scores beginning play on hole 1. Individual players, not participating in the Eclectic Tournament, will be paired together based on gross score or with an Eclectic side if there are an odd number of sides.

For the final round, players will be paired in groups of four, based on individual gross score through 36-holes. The lowest gross scores will begin play on hole 1.

CADDIES
Caddies are permitted.

PERSONAL APPEARANCE, FOOTWEAR
Players must be neat in appearance with respect to clothing and personal grooming. Traditional spikes are prohibited. Model Local Rule G-7.

DETERMINING TIES
A tie for first place overall in the Seniors Championship will be played off immediately hole by hole until a winner is determined. Any tie for first place within a Seniors Championship flight will be determined by a scorecard play-off using the following method as recommended by the USGA. Ties in the Eclectic competition will not be broken.

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.
