SCHEDULE

Monday - June 12: Practice Round

Tuesday - June 13: Round 1
Wednesday - June 14: Round 2

TROPHIES & AWARDS

 

CHAMPIONSHIP - The Champion's name will be engraved on the Perry Adair Trophy, which is permanently housed in the SGA offices. Additionally, awards will be given to the top eight players.  

STATE TEAM TROPHY - The STATE TEAM winner will be determined after the first 36 holes of play and each of the four team members will be awarded. The STATE TEAM is comprised of the low four players from the same state, the resident state determined by the address on the entry form. 

TIES - In case of a tie for the Championship, a "Sudden Death" playoff to determine the winner will be held immediately upon conclusion of the tournament. Such playoff will start on the hole determined by the Committee and as published on the local rules sheet.  All other ties not yet settled will be resolved by matching scorecards of the final round in accordance with the USGA recommendation as outlined in The Rules of Golf, Appendix I, page 161(c), except that if a tie still exists following this procedure then the procedure is repeated for the first nine holes, and if still tied, by matching scorecards beginning with Hole #1 until the tie is settled.

If a tie for the low TEAM exists after 36 holes of play, the tie will be settled by the total of the third round scores of the four players comprising the teams at the conclusion of 36 holes, and if still tied, by matching scorecards as in the previous paragraph except that the total score of all four players will be used for each hole.   If a tie exists after 36 holes of play for determining the four TEAM MEMBERS, the third round score of the players tied will be used to settle the tie, and if still tied, by order of finish in the championship.

RULES OF PLAY

Play will be governed by the current Rules of the United States Golf Association and by the Local Rules established by the SGA Rules Committee. All special questions will be settled by the SGA Rules Committee, whose decision will be final. Special Rules of Play Bulletins will be furnished each day at the starter's tent if conditions warrant.

The SGA may change the number of entries to be accepted, reduce the number of holes to be played, or make any other changes in conducting this Championship as they deem necessary or appropriate.
