will be given to you every week upon arrival at The Performance
Challenge One – The THSG BEST 5
Yourself and your partner will be playing together in a foursomes
format in the Swing Lab on the designated course for the week. The
handicapping is 20% of your combined handicap and is a strokeplaycompetition.
Ladies teams and mixed teams will play from the
red tees. Men will play from the yellow tees.
The THSG may review handicaps and tee positions weekly depending on performance.
** The THSG Sim play auto putt rules will be in operation for
each week. **
Challenge Two – The DISTANCE Challenge
Each week we will give you a distance to hit too, each player will have 5 shots each at that distance. We have designed a handicapping system for this task based on recent research.
0 - 5hcp = 10% margin for error allowance
6hcp - 12hcp = 15% margin for error allowance
13hcp - 20hcp = 20% margin for error allowance
21hcp + = 25% margin for error allowance
If the distance is 50 yards and you play off a 15 handicap (20% allowance). You need to hit the ball within 40-60 yards to score a point.
Challenge Four – The Hub Challenge
Drive for show, Putt for dough they say. This is your chance to
prove just that!! This could be the real clincher every week. You will
each have 10 putts to the same hole but every week the hole
changes to give you a different break and speed. The team with the
most putts holed takes the 50 points!!
Please use the following THSG indoor putt allowance –
11-20 - +1
21-30 - +2
31+ - +4
Player 1 – Handicap 25 – Holes out 4 out of 10 (+ 2 = 6)
Player 2 – Handicap 13 – Holes out 6 out of 10 (+ 1 = 7)
Team Score – 13 out of 20
