In this game, each player is eligible to win up to 3 points on each hole (except on par 3s where only 2 points are available). Focus on every shot and you may just walk away the winner!
How To Play

How To Score
Players are awarded 1 point each time they successfully:
(1) Hit the fairway in regulation (hit the ball in the fairway off the tee). This point is only available on Par 4s and 5s.
(2) Hit the green in regulation (hit the ball on the green in 1 shot on par 3s, in 2 shots on par 4s and in 3 shots on par 5s)
(3) Hit the ball into the hole in 2 putts or less.
How To Win
The winner is the Player with the most cumulative points at the end of the round.
Points can have a predetermined value (e.g. $1), or you could all wager something to throw into the “pot” in which the Player with the most points just wins the “pot” (e.g. $5).
Hole 1 (Par 4):
Eric tees off and lands his ball in the fairway (1 point). His 2nd shot he puts on the green (1 point). Three putts later, Eric makes his ball in the hole. After the first hole Eric would have 2 points. 1 for hitting a fairway in regulation and another point for hitting the green in regulation. Because Eric three putted he would not recieve the third point.
Hole 2 (par 3):
Eric hits his tee shot into the greenside bunker. His next shot he hits it within 1 foot of the cup. He then taps his putt in the hole (1 point). On the second hole Eric recieved 1 point total because he putted less than two times. Overall, after two holes Eric now has 3 points.
