2011 BORYS CLASSIC
Rules Governing the 6th Annual Borys Classic:
Saturday, September 17th
Club de Golf Carling Lake
First Nine - Two Man Scramble/Vegas
Teams of two play a scramble (Vegas) match against another team of two. A limitation here is that each player must contribute at least three (3) drives during this nine.. The winning team at the end of 9 holes wins 1 point (½ point each if the match is tied)
Second Nine – Alternate Shot
Teams of two alternate hitting the same ball until the ball is holed. In this format, both players will hit a drive and the team will have the choice to use whichever drive they would like. A limitation here is that each player must contribute at least three (3) drives during this nine. Each team will end up with a score on the hole and a match is played against their opponents scores. The winning team at the end of 9 holes wins 1 point (½ point each if the match is tied)
Third Nine – Team Best Ball (Better Ball)
Teams of two each play their own ball throughout the hole. The best score on each team is taken into consideration and played against the other team’s best score. The match continues on 9 holes and the winning team gets 1 point (½ point each if the score is tied)
There are also 2 points to be won for the entire, 27 hole match. The team that wins the combined match for the 27 holes (scramble, alternate shot, and best ball) wins an additional 2points (1point each if the score is tied).
Total – 5 points per match
Mulligans for Cancer:
Upon registration on Saturday morning, all participants will be given the opportunity to purchase, for $10, a mulligan. We've instilled this rule to try to raise a bit of money for our teammate, Vinnie Rayez, who was recently diagnosed with Hodgkins Disease.. All money raised will be donated in Vinnie's name towards Cancer Research. Both captains STRONGLY ENCOURAGE all team members to purchase one of these mulligans – no matter how good you think you are, there is always room for a second chance in golf! A couple of rules here:
1 – Only one mulligan is allowed per player and they are non-transferable (you cannot give it to your partner)
2 – Mulligans can only be used on Saturday and must be used within the first 18 holes of the match. We don't want a putt on the last hole to decide the outcome of the match to come down to a mulligan.
3 – When being played, it must be made clear to your opponents that a mulligan is being taken and your mulligan chip handed over to your opponents at that time.

Sunday, September 18th
Hawkesbury Golf Club, Hawkesbury
Singles matches (where we separate the boys from the men!)
Each player is paired up with an opponent of similar calibre from the opposing team. A straight up match is played with the following scoring in effect:
1 point is awarded to the winner of the front nine (½ point each if the score is tied)
1 point is awarded to the winner of the back nine (½ point each if the score is tied)
1 point is awarded to the winner of the full 18 (½ point each if the score is tied)
Total – 3 points per match
GENERAL RULES THAT APPLY TO BOTH DAYS
Players should play from the tee blocks that they would normally play from on any given day. Be honest with this and play from your normal position.
Preferred lies, gimmies, etc…
This should be decided within your group. Anything goes as long as your opponent agrees to it.
Each team will be given official scorecards at registration and again on Sunday morning. These need to be completed, signed and returned to your Captain after your match.
You will be given a team shirt and cap on Saturday upon registration. These are to be worn both days. Saturday, wherever possible, please wear light/beige/khaki pants or shorts and on Sunday, black bottoms.
We will have a couple of leader boards along the course. Please update the status of your match as you arrive at each so others can see where the teams stand.
Winning (like Charlie Sheen)
There are 77 points up for grabs over the weekend. For Canada to retain the trophy, they need 38.5 points. For Ukraine to win, they need 39 points.
Bon golf and may the best team (nation) win!!!
