Tournament Format
The Teeing Off on Cancer Golf Classic is a scramble format and is designed for fun. The definition of a Scramble is pretty simple, it's one of the primary forms of tournament play for golf associations, charity events and the like. A scramble is usually played with 4-person teams, but 2-person scrambles are popular, too. At a 2-person scramble, handicaps are usually applied; at a 4-person scramble, handicaps are usually not applied. In a scramble, each player tees off on each hole. The best of the tee shots is selected and all players play their second shots from that spot. The best of the second shots is determined, then all play their third shots from that spot, and so on until the ball is holed.

Scramble Rules
  • This event is a four-ball scramble
  • All players may hit every shot
  • Each player must place their ball within one club length of the selected shot, no nearer to the hole. Your ball must remain in the same area of the course as the selected ball. That is, a ball in the fairway, rough, fringe or hazard must remain in that condition.
  • On the green you must place the ball within one club-head length of the original spot, no nearer to the hole.
  • Ties will be broken by matching cards as recommended by the USGA on page 124 of the rule book. If that fails to break the tie, cards will be matched from hole #1 forward.
Additional Rules
  • Place balls within one club length of the original ball
  • In placing the ball, you may not change the condition of the shot. If the ball is in a hazard or rough, all members of the team must play their shot from the hazard or rough, respectively.
  • On the putting green, give each person a shot at the first putt. Do not hole out a short putt if you have missed your first putt. The first ball in must count. Mark your ball and wait.
