Chicago Golf Tournament

Saturday, June 21st

9am Shotgun

Definition: A Chicago golf tournament is a golf game whose format is based on golfers beginning their rounds with negative points (compare to Quota

).  In Chicago, players start with a negative amount of points, based on handicaps, then add positive points during the round.  The idea is to get from the negative to the positive, clearing your "hurdle" (the term used for your starting total of negative points) by as much as possible.

Negative points begin at -39 for scratch golfersA 1-handicapper starts with -38, a 2-handicapper with -37, and so on up to a 36-handicapper who starts with -3 points. During the round, positive points are added on this basis:

Bogeys are worth l point, 

Pars are worth 2 points, 

Birdies are worth 4 points, 

Eagles

 are worth 8 points
