For a twist, here are a few uncommon golf games you might not know about. Consider giving one of these variations a try the next time you hit the links for business.
THREE-PLAYER GOLF FORMATS
Split Sixes: There are six points up for grabs on each hole. The player who wins the hole gets four points, the second best gets two points and the loser gets none. In a tie for second, the points are split 4-1-1. In a tie for first, the points are split 3-3-0. The player with the most points at the end of the round wins.
FOUR-PLAYER GOLF FORMATS
Foursome: Each player pairs up with another for the round, and the pair alternates shots using only one ball until each hole is finished. Players also alternate who tees off at each hole: one player on even holes, the other on odd. You can play this format in either match play or stroke play. For stroke play, the handicap allowance for the game is half the combined total of each player within the pair. The pair with the lowest net score wins.
