MDGT FOUR-BALL STROKE PLAY CHAMPIONSHIP TO BE HELD AT AUDUBON CC IN LOUISVILLE
The KY Junior Golf Foundation (KJGF) in conjunction with the Musselman-Dunne Golf Tour (MDGT) proudly presents the 1st Annual MDGT Four-Ball Championship sponsored by CENTRAL BANK and THE KIA STORE to be held at Audubon Country Club in Louisville on Saturday & Sunday, April 18 & 19, 2015.
The KJGF is so pleased to have Audubon Country Club, one of the states top private facilities, host this exciting event where two competitors play as partners, each playing his/her own ball. The lower score of the partners is the score for the hole. This format, Four-Ball Stroke Play, is a very popular form of play that is much like match play but not played very often in competition. You see this form of play in the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup matches and this year the USGA will conduct its inaugural US Amateur & Women's Amateur Four-Ball Championships in May.
Our goal is to introduce our junior golfers to this type of format so that they can learn how Four-Ball is played and the strategy (much like match play) that goes along with it.
Here is what you need to do in order to participate:
The Divisions and number of teams currently signed up:
PLEASE NOTE: IF ANY DIVISON DOES NOT FILL BY THE APRIL 11 DEADLINE, MORE TEAMS WILL BE ADDED IN OTHER DIVISION WHERE THERE ARE ALTERNATE TEAMS.
