The Austin Cup is fun team match play event.
This event is for EWGA members only!
This is a mini Lone Star or Solheim Cup, learn how to compete in match play in a fun environment.
Players will be split into 2 overall teams (example: Reds vs. Blues).
2 Red players and 2 Blue players per tee time competing in 3 different match play formats:
6 holes fourball match play (low net of the 2 Reds vs. low net of the 2 Blues per hole)
6 holes Alternate Shot match play (Red players play one ball, Blue players play one ball, low net wins hole)
6 holes Singles match play (Player A in Red team vs. player A in Blue team, player B in Red vs. B in Blue team)
Each tee time will therefore have a total of 4 points from their matches to win/lose/tie each of the match play formats and add to the overall team totals. Points from all matches will be calculated to decide the winning side (i.e. overall Reds or Blues), for bragging rights.
Match play is a less stressful format than stroke play, you are only competing with the others in your tee time, not the rest of the 'field', so some rules are different. If you are falling apart on one hole, all you forfeit/concede is that hole, get your head together for the next hole. Match play format information will be supplied to all players prior to the event.
Teams will be equalized as fairly as possible based on player handicaps and experience.
Tee times will begin at 1PM.
THIS EVENT ONLY HAS A PAY IN ADVANCE OPTION! WE WILL NOT BE TAKING PAYMENTS ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT!
