Event Format Changes

Tournament Chairman Bob Remey has announced that the remaining Pinehurst format events on the 2016 schedule have been changed to Modified Pinehurst.  In Modified Pinehurst, both team members tee off. They select the one best drive, then play alternate shot into the cup. The golfer whose drive was not chosen hits the second shot.  (The expectation is that this format should allow rounds to be completed in under 4 hours in the hottest summer months).
The changes have been made to the online schedule and the General Tournament Information will be updated to include the format description.

Pinehurst Format

Some members may be wondering how to play the ASGA Pinehurst event scheduled forTuesday, February 16 at Morris Williams Golf Course.  Here is how the format is described in the ASGA General Tournament Information:

"Pinehurst Format: (Modified Alternate Shot): This is an alternate shot format with one added step.  On each hole, both players drive the ball from the teeing area. On the second shot, player A hits player B's ball and player B hits player A's ball. From this point on, one ball will be chosen for alternate shot play. Either player may hit the first alternate shot regardless of which ball is chosen."

Simply stated, if you and I are playing as a team, we both hit tee shots, then I hit your ball and you hit mine, and then we select the best ball and hit alternate shots until the ball is holed.  Either partner can hit the third shot.
