Q. What does it cost to enter?
Q. I am travelling with friends and/or family to play in the event. Can we be drawn to play together?
A. The World Masters Golf Championship will involve a draw being made which will group people together randomly. This is standard practice at golf championships and also allows participants to meet and engage with participants they have not yet met, which is a key theme of the event. That said, should you be travelling together with a group or in a pair and are playing the same flight, please let us know once you have registered and we will do all we can to schedule your tee times close together to help facilitate your travel logistics.
Q. What is stableford format and why is it being used for the World Masters Golf Championship?
A. Stableford is a points based system whereby if your net score after applying your handicap allowance at a hole, is two under par then you score 4 points, one under par you score 3 points, par you score 2 points and bogey you score 1 point. If you are score a bet double bogey or worse you score no points for that hole. Click here for the official definition.
Q. What groupings are being used for the draw?
A. To maximise the golfer’s enjoyment we have limited the field size at each course to a maximum of 120 players per day. While we could have filled the courses with more players our over-riding objective is to provide a fun and competitive environment. This is best achieved by playing in groups of three with generous timings between groups. This should ensure the pace of play is reasonable and all golfers can maximise the enjoyment of their round.
Q. How will you determine who qualifies for which course on the final day?
A. The leading 60 players from flight 1 and the leading 60 players from flight 2 shall play the 4th round at Royal Troon. The remaining 120 players shall play the 4th round at Glasgow Gailes. In the event of a tie for 60th place in either flight, ties shall be resolved as follows:
• The player with the highest number of stableford points in round 3; and if still a tie
• The player with the highest number of stableford points for holes 10-18 in round 3; and if still a tie
• The player with the highest number of stableford points for holes 13-18 in round 3; and if still a tie
• The player with the highest number of stableford points for holes 16-18 in round 3; and if still a tie
• The player with the highest number of stableford points for hole 18 in round 3; and if still a tie
• Sudden Death card play-off in round 3 using stableford points, starting at hole 1 until a winner is determined.
