All applicable rules for the World Am apply. Additional rules specific to pairs are as follows:
Prizes for 1-5 will be determined by Friday's net scores only (scores reset). Prizes for 6-10 will be determined by 72-hole score in relation to course ratings. Prizes 2nd-10th are per person.
"Why are scores done in relation to course rating instead of my net score?"
A course rating measures your target net score for the day. Someone playing a course rating of 67 is more capable to shoot a net 67 than someone playing a course with a rating of 70. Because the World Am utilizes ratings of all ranges for all genders & abilities, we must utilize relation to course rating to ensure a level playing field.
Example: Player A and Player B both shoot net 70. Player A played a golf course with a rating of 67, while Player B on a course rating of 71. In the Pairs Competition, Player A will be shown as +3 (70-67) while Player B will be shown as -1 (70-71). Player B's net 70 was better because it was done on a course that is four strokes more difficult. Par is irrelevant.
If you were to only take net score into consideration, those with a easy course rating throughout the week would have a distinct and unfair advantage over those playing more difficult courses.
Because we utilize scoring based on course ratings and slopes, there will be one flight/division for all teams no matter what flight(s) your team plays in.
Your World Am Tournament index will also serve as your index for competition.
A tie for fifth to determine who plays Friday will be broken based on the lowest team score in relation to course rating on the final round of play within competition. If there is still a tie, the next tie break is Wednesday, Tuesday, then Monday.
If there is a tie on Friday's, it will be broken using combined team net back 9 scores, then team front 9 nine. If a tie still exists, it will be broken using the lowest individual 18 hole net score from Friday, then individual back 9, then individual front 9. If a tie still exists (or Friday was not completed), it will be broken using the combined team net scores in relation to course rating from the most recent completed tournament round going backwards. If a tie still exists, it will be broken using the lowest individual net score from the most completed tournament round going backwards.
If during the course of play at the Myrtle Beach World Amateur Handicap Championship, either team member is disqualified, their team will also be disqualified from the competition. No refunds will be given to either party. All decisions of the World Amateur Golf tournament committee are final.
If you must cancel prior to the start of play, be sure to identify you are participating in the IP Qualifier competition to process your refund appropriately.
If all competitors are not able to complete any round on any given day, that day’s score will not be used to compute the totals for ALL teams. One completed tournament round will constitute a tournament.
