Event Description

For those of you unfamiliar with The Firecracker event, here are the elements:

In rotating order, Player A tees from the Red tees on Hole 1 (and 5 and 9 and 13 and 17), the other 3 from the Whites.

Player A’s score + 1 the best score of the 3 from the whites is the total for that hole.

On the 2nd hole, the 2nd man on the scorecard hits from the Red tees and his score with the best of the then remaining 3 is the score for that hole.

3rd man plays Red tees on hole 3 (and 7 and 11 and 15) and

The 4th man then tees off on the 4th (8th. 12th and 16th) hole(s).

Payoffs will be, as usual: 

45% +/- of the teams in each flight will be in for a payoff. (17 teams: 8 in the money (1st-4th Gross, 1st-4th Net), 16 or 15 teams: 7 in the money (1st-3rd Gross, 1st-4th Net), 14 or 13 teams: 6 in the money (3 Gross and 3 Net).

The round is Non-postable.

We would probably use 20% of each players h/c.
