SUBSTITUTIONS MUST BE REPORTED TO THE TOURNAMENT ADMINISTRATOR AND THE TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR BY THE TEAM CAPTAIN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AND PREFERABLY BEFORE THE SUBSTITUTION IS MADE.

Pool play: 9-hole matches against same roster players from other teams in your pool. Earn a team point for winning more holes in match than opponent. Earn a ½ point for a tie.

A match is forfeit if a player does not show at the designated tee by the time the last match of a round is ready to play. A forfeit earns one team point for the winner by a score of 1 Up and O holes to play.

Scoring: matches that are over before the nine holes are finished are not necessary to complete. Scores for matches are reported as the number of holes up and the number of holes remaining in the nine-hole match when the match was closed out. Thus, Player A who is up by two holes with only one hole remaining reports the win as 2up and 1. Player B was "dormie" at the beginning of the eighth hole as they needed to win the last two holes to salvage a tie in the match.
