In the event of ties, a scorecard playoff will take place, the team with the lowest two-ball score beginning with the number one handicapped hole and so on.
Day 1 - Two Best Balls of Four. 18-holes. Teams will be paired by team handicap index. If two-teams have identical handicaps, the team with the lowest individual handicap index will be given the lower hole pairing.

At least two players have to hole out and write down a score on each hole.
