Announcing the second annual two person TEAM GK CUP match play event.

Must be a member of Greenskeeper.org to be eligible to compete.

Additional changes from prior GK Cups on participant eligibility for all future GK Cups:

1-Must have a sanctioned USGA Index.

* If you don't have a sanctioned USGA Index and have been exclusively using the GK Score Tracker, you can convert your last 10 scores on the Score Tracker into a USGA GHIN Index if you join the SCGA GK Golf Club.

2-$25 entry fee per player to help defer the expense of Greenskeeper hosting a GK Cup.

**If you are a member of our SCGA GK Golf Club your $25 entry fee is waived. Greenskeeper.org will handle all payments through this link.

Message: Nickesquire on Greenskeeper.org or Email: Nick Byrd at nickesquire@hotmail.com

Please provide your teams information for the following:
• Both Greenskeeper.org usernames
• Both Last Names
• Both First Names
• Both Contact # (cellphone)
• Both E-mail Contact (personal E-mail)
• Both teammates current USGA/GHIN Index #
• Each teammate is responsible for their own $25 entry fee

Handicapped 2 man team 4 ball (using the handicapped net score for each of the 4 players) to determine the team best ball in match play format. The best net score of the two teammates shall count as the team best ball score. This is a team match play event played under team match play rules as determined by the USGA**.

**Recent POP alterations to strict tournament OB/lost balls are acceptable in the GK Cup. Not required to go back to the previous spot and rehit if no provisional was played. Just +2 to score to account for the normal stroke/distance penalty.

All competitors are expected to post all rounds played and maintain current handicap indexes. Sanctioned USGA handicaps only, the GK Scoretracker will no longer be utilized. Current update on all participants official indexes, their 20 most current rounds played.

It is the responsibility of all competitors to have current and verifiable sanctioned handicap information for their opponent. It is the responsibility of the match opponents to request and verify current sanctioned handicap information. Screenshots that include the current index plus the date and place of the competitors most 20 current rounds are recommended. Preferably BEFORE the match so all parties can determine course handicaps and the stroke differences for each set of tees that may be utilized.

All competitors may play any set of tees they choose, with course handicaps for tee differences adjusted accordingly.

All competitors shall figure their COURSE Handicap based on the tees they are playing. You can find your course handicap for each tee box using the Handicap Calculator on https://www.usga.org/course-handicap-calculator.html or going to Ghin.com.

The team GK Cup will serve as a qualifier to determine eligibility to play in SCGA team events representing the GK Golf Club. If the champions cannot play, then the runners up will be eligible.

The following is a format change from the initial team GK Cup to ensure that we are following SCGA guidelines.

The player with the lowest course handicap of the 4some will receive zero handicap strokes in GK Cup team matches. All other players in the 4some will have their course handicaps reduced by the amount of the lowest course handicap in the 4some.

Example:

Player A is playing the Whites and after all tee and handicap adjustments has a course handicap of 7.
Player B is playing the Blacks and after all tee and handicap adjustments has a course handicap of 16.
Player C is playing the Blues and after all tee and handicap adjustments has a course handicap of 11.
Player D is playing the Blues and after all tee and handicap adjustments has a course handicap of 12.

Player A as the lowest course handicap gets 0 handicap strokes in this match.
Player B is 16-7 = 9 handicap strokes in this match. One stroke on the 1-9 handicap holes.
Player B is 11-7 = 4 handicap strokes in this match. One stroke on the 1-4 handicap holes.
Player B is 12-7 = 5 handicap strokes in this match. One stroke on the 1-5 handicap holes.

Anyone 19 above the lowest course handicap will start receiving 2 strokes on the #1 handicap hole until they have received their allotted amount of handicap strokes.

It is critical that all participants play all matches under the same set of guidelines/rules.

Pool play will start October 1, 2020 and conclude on January 31, 2021. All pool play matches must be reported by 1/31/21 to count.

Semi Finals and Final will be in February, 2021.

Each team sets up their own matches. Maximum of one match v. 4 different teams, 4 matches total in preliminary pool play.

Match points awarded on a three point system. 1 point for the front 9 winner, 1 point for the back 9 winner, 1 point for the overall 18 hole winner. No tiebreakers, any ties result in 1/2 point awarded per team.

Four highest team point totals after pool play advance to the semi finals for a knock out round to determine the finalists. 1 v. 4 and 2 v. 3 seeds play in the semi finals.

Tie breaker to advance (or for 1-4 seeds) if one or more teams are tied after pool play:

1-Head to head total points won if tied teams played each other. If inapplicable or still tied,
2-Team that wins the most overall matches, if still tied,
3-Team that posts their final point first, if still tied,
4-18 hole match to determine who advances.

Please sign up as a team. Two singles could match themselves up, but it is up to the participants to form their own teams.

AndrewZ28 and gary00 are back to defend their team title.

The goal has always been long and straight! But since I can no longer hit them long, hopefully straighter could be achieved more than occasionally?

With the now significant difference between a GK Score Tracker Index and a USGA GHIN Index GK Cup Match Play has reached a crossroads. In GK Cup 15 we exclusively used a GK Score Tracker Index. However it is going to be easier moving forward to exclusively use a USGA GHIN Index for consistency.

One of the main reasons I created the SCGA GK Golf Club was to create an easy scores transition from GK Score Tracker to an USGA GHIN Index so current regular GK Cup players that only use the GK Score Tracker could easily establish a USGA GHIN Index. Ultimately I'd like all GK Cup players to be members of our SCGA GK Golf Club (and future NCGA GK Golf Club) as this would be the ideal way to run the GK Cup. So even though I could use the money to help with the costs, time and effort putting on the GK Cup I'm glad to waive the $25 entry fee if a GK Cup player is a member of our SCGA GK Golf Club.

https://blog.greenskeeper.org/product/gk-golf-club-scga-ghin-membership/

Next week we'll be setting up the entry fee page for GK Cup 16 but in the meantime please consider establishing a USGA GHIN Index to participate.

Thank You

QUOTED  Status of GK Cup 16 Team Match Play?

It will be happening. We should have an entry page set up later this month. Have fell behind on some important priorities I have to address first. Once again a reminder to those want to participate a USGA GHIN index is required. If you don't have one please join our SCGA GK Golf Club. Doing so will waive your $25 entry in this GK Cup and next year's single GK Cup tournament. So the SCGA GK Golf Club membership practically pays for itself if you are an active GK Cup player.

No specific limit of teams since teams can schedule a match against any other eligible team, up to the maximum of 4 matches against 4 different teams.
