FORMAT

The format of the Net Four Ball Championship is better-ball of two partners with prizes for low net based on 90% of course handicap. There will be a prize for low gross but the tournament champion team will be the low net team. All ties will be resolved by matching cards.

Markers should record the actual score for the Player making the team better ball score for each hole. The scorecards have been dotted to show where each partner gets shots. The dots represent 90% of course handicap. Scorers may also show gross and net better-ball scores on the card, but are not required to do so. The LIGA will compute the better-ball scores.

Please note the Pace of Play line on the Scorecard. It is expected that a player out of a hole will pick-up.
