Whether it is blazing or freezing on your side of the globe, the weather is always perfect in Pebble Beach, California.

Thanks to helpful suggestions from Chooky and Tallyho, the Pro-AM is on!

This will run like a regular Factacular Golf tournament with each golfer receiving 18 holes (10 question random brainoffs) over the course of 4 days. The individual with the lowest/best golf score at the end will win the individual championship.

However, golf isn't golf without a sidepot. Using recent Decathlon scores, players will be matched into teams of two for the Pro-Am portion of the tournament. No additional brainoffs will be sent, the teammates' golf scores for each of their 18 regular holes will just be added together. The team with the lowest/best golf score at the end will win the Pro-Am.

Various trophies and prizes will be available in both competitions.

I'll be working the swim-up bar and enlisting help with other drinking related beach activities.

Scoring will all be golf scoring:

Condor: 2500 (-4)
Albatross: 2250-2499 (-3)
Eagle: 2000-2249 (-2)
Birdie: 1500-1999 (-1)
Par: 1000-1499 (+0)
Bogey: 500-999 (+1)
Double Bogey: 250-499 (+2)
Triple Bogey: 1-249 (+3)
Quadruple Bogey: 0 (+4)

 

I will definitely be playing at least the singles this time. Hope to see you all at the first tee and perhaps at the 19th hole as well.

@rmcmanus This one should be pretty uncomplicated! No scores dropped or averages, just simple addition for the pro-am. And all regular golf scoring and stroke play this time (I must have been feeling kind).

I'm delighted to be in the Greek team for another tournament. But why do we never get any Greek questions?
