Big Break Storey Creek 2014
Rules/Guidelines (subject to change at any time without notice)
- There is no entry fee to participate. All men’s club members are eligible and participation is voluntary.
- The competition consists of a series of immunity and elimination challenges starting with immunity challenges in week 1 and week 2 and an elimination challenge in week 3.
- Challenges will require strategy, luck, golf skill and will be adjusted for handicap. Focus on fun!
- Challenges will be designed to not unduly delay speed of play.
- The rules and description of the challenge will be included in the e-mail of the results of the previous week. Some challenges may be difficult to explain, but we will try our best. If you don’t understand the challenge or have any questions please e-mail or call someone on the men’s club executive before you go to the golf course. The guys in the pro shop do not have time to explain the challenge and any player who asks Kyle (or any other pro shop staff) will receive a score 0.
- Players who perform well in immunity challenges will gain immunity from elimination at the next elimination challenge. (e.g. players gaining immunity in week 1 will be safe until week 4).
- The objective is to reward players who show up consistently, make good decisions and are able to clutch up when it counts; not necessarily the best golfer.
- There will be a weekly prize and we are working on a very special prize package for the eventual champion.
Immunity Challenge 1 – “Drive for Dough”
- Challenge will reward good driving, good decision making and good math.
- Top 30% (approx.) will receive immunity from the elimination challenge in week 3 and will be safe until week 4.
- Each player starts with a balance of IBBB’s (Imaginary Big Break Bucks) based on their handicap. Handicap 0-9 start with $10, Handicap 10-20 start with $20 and handicap 21+ start with $30.
- There is 3 wagering opportunity’s on three tee shots during the round; on hole #2, hole #6 and hole #9. Players in the shotgun will not necessarily play the holes in that order.
- The wager will pay odds based on the difficulty of the tee shot challenge. Wager is based on the result of their normal tee shot on that hole (there is no separate tee shot required for the competition). Players tee off on their normal tee box (blue or white).
- Hole #2 wager: Tee-shot clears ditch and finishes in the maintained area of the golf course (rough is OK but not in the bushes). Odds 2-1
- Hole #6 wager: Tee-shot is past 250 yard marker and in the fairway. Odds 10-1
- Hole #9 wager: Tee-Shot past 150 yard marker and in the fairway. Odds 5-1
- Player must declare to one of his playing competitors the amount of IBBB’s he wishes to wager before hitting tee-shot. He can wager any amount up to his balance in $1 increments.
- Player can pass on any of the tee shots but must make at least 1 wager and the total value of wagers must be at least $10.
- You can’t wager more IBBB’s than you have and if you lose all your IBBB’s your score will be zero.
- Players keep track of their own balance of IBBB’s and record the amount of IBBB’s they have at the end of the round on the score card.
- Players failing to record their BB score on the scorecard will be assigned a score of zero.
