Back by popular demand, the next full field Keepers event will be the Keepers Pinehurst Glenmorangie 2018. This is a “Pinehurst Scotch” format that blends Scramble and Alternate Shot elements into an entertaining Two-Man Team Kompetition.
You get to choose your partner for this one so think about it who you might want to play with before you sign up.
This event will be played on Sunday August 5th with tee times from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. on the South Course. There is a team handicap calculated with the USGA Formula for these type of events and it is based on each partners 80% course handicap on the South for the tees he will be playing. Team Handicap will be the sum of 60% of the lower handicap partner’s handicap and 40% of the higher handicap partner’s handicap.
The rules are quite simple:
A. Both golfers on the team hit drives.
B. They walk forward to their balls, but then switch balls for the second shot. Partner A hits Partner B’s ball, Partner B hits Partner A’s ball.
C. After the second shot they compare the results and select the ball to play on with picking up the other.
D. From the third stroke on they play alternate shot, based on who hit the last shot they choose, until the ball is holed.
E. Strokes on each hole are applied based on the team handicap to get a Net Score.
That is the Keepers Pinehurst Glenmorangie-hit drives, switch balls for the second shot, pick up the worse ball, and play alternate shot into the hole. This should play rapidly if you limit consultation on the alternate shots to two sentences (which is more than adequate for players of Keepers ability).
In last year’s inaugural Pinehurst Glenmorangie we had to raise our glasses to the team of Marc Birnbaum and Herbie Kushner who torched the field by six shots on their way to a 9 under par net 62. They shot an unbelievable gross 75 with 9 gross pars and 3 birdies, including a one-under across the critical Par 3s.
