2-Player Better Ball

Andrew Robertson and Josh Downham win the inaugural Better Ball tourney!

Karl Stern and Scott Kibby won the First Flight.

This is a new tournament that golfers should enjoy. It is a two-day, two-player Better Ball format played on two different courses. Play began on June 20 at Brown Deer and concluded on June 21 at Pleasant Valley.

In Better Ball, both players play their own ball on each hole. For each hole, the lower score of the two is entered as the team score for that hole. Same as the Ryder Cup Four-ball format.

The tournament was flighted. Players under age 50 hit from the back tees, players between 50 and 64 play up one set of tees, players 65 or over and women hit from one more set of tees up. At PV that means Blues, Whites, and Reds respectively.
