VP Trish: National Golf – Friday’s Results

September 14, 2022

The format of the National Golf Tournament is that Friday is a Doubles Scramble. For you non-golfers, a scramble is when you both drive the ball, but then each golfer hits their next shot from the best hit ball. This continues until they finish the hole.

There are “only” four divisions in this event. Men (including mixed pairs) and women. The way handicap is done is that the handicap of both golfers is added together, then divided in half for the team handicap.

As an FYI-each golfer confirmed their handicap with me prior to golfing! Most of our golfers use their Falcon average (if they have participated at least three years). Quite a few simply told me their general scores when they golf. Not many of our participants golf in a league where they can provide a league average.

In the case of a tie, the best score on the hardest hole on the course breaks the tie.
