PostSubject: GOLF-ing commercially   Wed Jun 23, 2010 10:17 am

First of all, let me acknowledge that I am not a serious bet-er and not very familliar with the various commercial T&C associated with betting outside the std skins and stroke and matchplay. Here are the few which I know and made aware:

1. 6-s:

Guess this is the most popular and adopted by many. In essense the flight of 4 are to be paired in 2 for each 6 holes and folow the match play rules. after that , the flight will rotate the pairing.
some will just play the best ball and there are some who will take into account the 2nd ball if the 1st ball among the 2 pairs are square

2. Fireman

For me at least, this is where apply for Par 3 only. If someone is ON the green and someone else is off the green, then if the latter manage to par the hole, that hole is square and $ carry forward to next par 3. Conversely if all on the green then the one who is nearest and don par, will pay.

3. Big and Small snake

this is something which I personally encountered just last week. I think this originated from the golf courses near jungle where someone actually saw a small snake gliding around and eaten up by another.....and soon, the latter became big snake.
It goes like this (at least this was how i had contributed). Upfront, the flight define what contributes to a 'small snake' and that could be a shot to hazzard, bunker, water etc etc including 3-putt. Who ever that kena one of these, will be marked as 1st small snake...and the next will be 2nd small snake. Depending on the agreed threshold (lets say 3), the 3rd person who committed a snall snake will be the loser. The loser will pay or penalized as per agreed. (PS: this had resulted in some being hesitant to on the green for fear of being too far fm hole...ahahahahah)



anymore? I am hoping not to be mountain tortoise cheers

3s - Split version of sixes just that this is better, so that players got chance to fight back. It can come with auto press so everytime a 3s or sixes is conclude (4up, 2 to go or 2up, 1 to go), a new game begins.

Vegas - Of the tee box, left ball will partner left ball on the fairway, right ball partner right ball. Bets will depend on points combine by each team.

eg. PLayer A hits a par on a par 4, his partner hits a bogey. (Total Points 45)

Player C hits a bogey on the par 4 and his partner a double bogey ( Total points 56).

So player A and B wings 11 points. Bets will depend how much per point.

The scary part comes when someone birdie in the team, then the score on the opp team will reverse and multiply.

eg. PLayer A hits a birdie on a par 4, his partner hits a bogey. (Total Points 35)

Player C hits a bogey on the par 4 and his partner a double bogey ( Total points 65 because of reverse).

So player A and B wings 30 points. If player B pars, it will ber reverse x 2. If both birdie, will be reverse x 3.

Bacarrat (The up up and away game)

THere will be a banker and 3 players at every tee box. So normally, there are points. If player A hits a nice tee shot and he feels he wants to double the bets on that hole. He will should up before ball lands. ANd when the banker also feels that he hit a nice tee shot (banker normally tee off last), he can also shout "UP". So that hole, its already base bet x 4. and there will be additionals for birdies.

Penalty game (good for beginners to improve your score)

THis is a game that i play when i first started golf. Its to train your mental as well as your course management. THere are no winners cos normally the total losses will be place on the table for food and beer.

Each penalty is at least $5. (Or else too little, no effect). For me, the following are consider penalties.

Hazard - 1 penalty
Water - 1 penalty
OB - 2 penalties
Bunker - 1 penalty
Putt short of hole (ball must pass hole) - 1 penalty
double bogey - 1 penalty
every stroke after penalty - 1 penalty.

I remember my first ever game... i have about 20 over penalities. Felt the pain and started training hard.

THats all i know and normally plays.

Besides penalties, there are also rewards.

Birdies for $5 from everyone else. Double that for eagles.

Nearest to Pin on a Par 3 will be $5 from everyone else. However, if you 3-putt, you pay everyone $5 or can even double that if you agreed upon it before the game starts.

Also, if you make par from the bunker, everyone will pay you $5.

In this case, if the green is a difficult one like a lot of gradients, and if the 1st golfer landed his ball on the green but very far away which looks like sure guarantee 3 putts needed, the rest of the golfers all plays off the green on purpose and waits for him to 3 putt. So the other 3 get $5 right if he 3 putts??? Think thats a plan hahaha ROFL ROFL ROFL

For the penalty game, we only play penalties.... so even if the guy 3 putt, he just pay 1 penalty....no need to pay the other players.
