Handicaps are converted into mulligans, but instead of replaying your own shot – you get to make your opponent replay their shot.  If you are a 10 handicap, then you get 10 mulligans.  If you don’t have a handicap, agree upon a number with your partner.

How To Play

Play out each hole as you normally would trying to shoot the lowest score possible.  Instead of each golfer using mulligans to replay their own shots, they use their mulligans to choose which shots are replayed by their opponent.  If your partner hits a really good shot, use a mulligan and make them shoot again.

How To Score

Normal strokeplay scoring is recommended.

How To Win

The player with the lowest score at the end of the rounds wins!

More Info

Example:  Angie is playing against B.J.  Angie has 10 mulligans and B.J. hits a great shot, Angie can use one of her mulligans and make B.J. replay the shot in hopes that he hits a worse shot.  After B.J. hits his ball again, Angie only has 9 mulligans left.

Because this game involves redoing shots, please make sure that you are keeping up with the pace of play and not holding up the group behind you when taking more time.
