    Team Golf

    Hi All

    Long time since i last posted

    This Friday, i am playing with a couple of my cousins in a charity competition at a decent local course.

    I've read the memo they received regarding the event, its 4man teams with best 2 scores counting on each hole.

    I have never played in one of these before, and was wondering what happens in terms of the general play

    Do you go round in a 4 ball with just your team mates?

    Thanks in advance

    Wasnt sure if you went round with say 1 of your team and 2 from another team to avoid any disputes if a team came in with huge points tally

    We are all honest enough, that would never happen... right?

    Winter Open at Porthcawl a couple of years back.... late February, freezing cold 35mph wind....this format - ie 2 from 4. One team came in about 15 points clear.... even the Secretary looked embarrassed handing over the swag, um, I mean prizes

    Well our team scored 88 points (scored 37 pts personally), which when handing in the card were told the current leaders are on 94....conditions were windy but the course was in great nick. I had to leave before the prize givings to attend a family birthday

    Just caught up with the lads from my team tonight and the winning team scored 105, 11 points clear of 2nd! with two of their team getting 1st and 3rd in the individual scores with 46 and 42. The lad with 46 points collected 1 of the 2 longest drive prizes and the two members of the team who didn't collect individual points prizes had 2 of the 4 nearest the pin prizes.

    There were 21 teams of 4, and this group collected 6 of the 9 prizes on the day ... apparently there were a few murmurings in the room

    I once heard of some notorious North Wales team who put in a 108 in the same format. They were going around their area hoovering up opens, and I can only presume that they were cheats.

    If my maths is correct, it means all 4 of them more going around in an equivalent of 8 under handicap (each) and dovetailing perfectly.......

    Played in a same format couple of years ago with similar scoring. The room to a man roundly booed the team when they went forward to collect their prizes.
    To avoid this it is better to have the 4 split into 2 teams of 2 out with a different pair then each pair is better ball with both teams scores added at the end to give a total.
