consists of 8 players
may field multiple teams (no limit)
· A team
can have players from multiple chapters.
It does not have to be from one chapter.
· A team can compete in any regional qualifier. Texas
is in the Central region.
· A team must have a team name and a team captain
· When determining who plays against whom, Nationals does
not take into consideration teams being from the same chapter. Pairings
are determined on team name and handicap.
· If a chapter has multiple teams attempting to qualify,
some things to consider:
o Register in
different regions to ensure you won’t compete against each other
o Have a high and
low handicap team. This helps ensure you will play very few matches
against each other.
together a team, handicaps should be considered carefully. There is a 6
stroke handicap differential for the team four ball play. The two team
handicap difference can only be 6. If it is more than 6, the higher
handicap loses the extra strokes to meet the 6 stroke differential.
A total of 50 teams will qualify to compete at the Cup finals
The number of teams to qualify in each region is based on a
percentage of teams competing in each region.
The number of teams advancing from each region will be
determined after the registration deadline.
Nationals will notify team captains in each region on how many teams
will advance from each region.
In 2016 the Houston team competed in the Midwest region to play
teams outside of Texas chapter teams.
It is recommended consulting with all Houston teams that are
competing to discuss strategy on what region each team will compete in.
