That's three points per match, with three matches per session and six in singles. Foursomes: 18 points available. Fourball: 18 points available. Singles: 18 points available.* * In this year's edition we're making an additional six points available during the singles matches with a special Optic Yellow Get Sum. On any hole during the singles matches, each team can challenge the opposing team to play the hole with the Yellow Ball. If the challenged team makes a NET par or better they earn a point. If they make net bogey or worse, the challenging team earns a point. Before we get started, I'd like to thank the 2017 sponsors: Talamore Golf Resort - home to spacious and comfortable villas and lodging, a weekly pig roast, and two of the finest golf courses in the golf-centric Pinehurst area. Snell Golf - makers of a golf ball that offers tour caliber performance at an affordable price, and the company shaking up the golf ball industry. FlightScope - New in 2017, a pocket-sized launch monitor called Mevo, with a pocket-sized price and BIG performance for measuring and improving YOUR game. Mission Belt - No holes belts as seen on Shark Tank, now with a great new canvas strap option! Delilah Club Covers - Custom, hand-made driver, wood, hybrid, and putter covers, along with caddie bags and more.

PitchFix - Makers of the world's finest ball mark repair tools, customized with your own logos or designs. TRUE Linkswear - #EnjoyTheWalk with some of the best golf shoes on the market. I'd like to offer, too, a special thanks to @RandallT who will again be keeping track, either in person or off-site (but not off-"site" if you know what I mean ) of the current standings in a nice leaderboard that he'll post here in this topic throughout the rounds, as well as the likes of @nevets88, @billchao, and other members of the staff who will likely be monitoring our Twitter account @the_sand_trap and posting those Tweets and updates to this topic.
