New BA Cup Format Approved

2019 Bouchillon - Ambrose Cup ChampionshipThe format has changed for the B-A Cup Tournament.  The Tournament will be played over three days, Thursday, October 10th, Wednesday, October 16th and Thursday, October 17th.  This year, each team will play each other team and each day’s Points will be cumulative towards determining the Champion. This should ensure that every team is in it on Day 3 and make the tournament even more exciting!The Details:

  • Teams will be seeded based on this season’s results with seeding ties being broken by the previous 9 month’s play (total points, then head-to-head). 
  • Each team will start with the points earned during the 9-month season, earning 1 point for each win.
  • Day 1 will pit the #1 seed against the #4 seed and #2 vs. #3 in 4-ball. 
  • Day 2 will pit the #1 seed against the #3 seed, and #2 vs. #4 in Modified Alternate Shot.
  • Day 3 will pit the #1 seed vs. the #2 seed, and #3 vs. #4 in Individual Match Play.
  • Teams can win up to 10 points on Day 1 and Day 2 (prorated to however many matches are played) in the matched competition. (For example, if there are 10 matched, each match is worth 1 point.  If there are 12 matched, each match is worth .833 points.)
  • On Day 3, Teams can win up to 20 points (prorated to however many matches are played).
  • Overflow players, if any, will have the opportunity to each earn ¼ point for their team by earning at least 32 Stableford points.  Earned Overflow points will be added to each team’s daily total.
  • Match winners and those earning overflow points will receive Player of the Year points
  • If the Final Total results in a tie, the tie will be settled by a playoff featuring the captain of each team and a partner in a 4-ball sudden death format on the 18th hole at Deer Creek.  Each two-man team will achieve parity with a similar combined index total. 

In summary, teams will compete for up to 9 points during the season, 10 points on day 1, 10 points on day 2 and 20 points on day 3.  Overflow points are on top of the 3-day point total, but have to be earned.Yes, we know it’s more complicated, but don’t sweat the details – your Captains have put a lot of time into making sure it works and keeping it fair.   We’ll post scores every day so everyone knows where they stand.  The goal is to make sure all matches are relevant and that every team has a shot on Day 3.  The bottom line – the team that plays the best over the four-part competition – will win!Here are key points for participation and registration:

  • Day 1 & Day 2 will be played at Oakridge and the Day 3 match at Deer Creek.  Each day is a 9AM shotgun.
  • Beverages will be cold as always after each match, food service details are TBD
  • Participants may play any day or all days and must register for each day separately through the web site.
