2020 DIGT Event Formats

General Information

  • All events, are based on net (handicapped) scoring.
  • Tiebreaking procedures used to determine the event awards are based on a match of scorecards.  The order of tiebreakers is as follows: (1) net score over last 9 holes; (2) net score over last 6 holes; (3) net score over last 3 holes; (4) net score on 18th hole; (5) net score on 17th hole; (6) net score on 16th hole, etc.  This procedure is recommended in the USGA Handicap Manual.  (Note: Except for 1st Place, tiebreakers are not used for determining the award won in an event.  The award will be split equally among tied players/teams.)
  • Your tournament handicap is determined according to the event format, tees played, course rating, slope, and your official USGA handicap index handicap. Handicap strokes are applied based on the course handicap stroke allocation (indicated on the scorecard).  For example, a player receiving 21 strokes receives one stroke on every hole except for the holes rated #1, 2, and 3, where the player receives two strokes.
