I’ve had a few questions about the Child’s Play Charity Golf Tournament that I wanted to go ahead and cover here in a quick post.
“Do I need to be a decent golfer?”
Absolutely not! I apologize if I gave the impression that I was good at the sport. While it’s true that in my younger days I had what the kids call “Skillz” that is no longer the case. I only play once or twice a year now and believe me it shows. I fully intend to get my money’s worth as I will be seeing every inch of this course.
Also since the format is a four person scramble you really only need the occasional decent/lucky shot to do well as a team. That brings me to the other question I got a lot.
“What is a four person scramble?”
It is essentially co-op golf! We will all be grouped up into four person teams. Each person in the team makes their drive and then as a team you choose the best one. Then everyone hits from that spot and again you choose the best shot and everyone hits from there. You do this until the ball is holed. Maybe your team won’t use your drive but you might be the guy who drops the five foot putt at the end! It really is a ton of fun and in my opinion the format that delivers the most fun.
After you sign up there is an option to request a foursome. So if you want to go with your buddies you can all get in the same team. Otherwise you’ll just be put into a team at random which is how I intend to go.
