THE RULES OF PLAY:

Foursomes matches (alternate shots) add a new wrinkle. Since each team plays a single ball and alternates shots (you hit the drive, your partner hits the approach, you putt, etc.), individual handicaps cannot be used. In this case, a handicap allowance is used. The handicaps of both team members are added together; the team with the lowest combined handicaps plays at scratch. The other team then subtracts the low team’s handicap from theirs, divides the difference in two, then rounds up to the next full stroke. Using our teams of 15 and 6 (21 total) versus 7 and 9 (16 total), the 16 team plays at scratch. The 21 team’s handicap becomes 3 (21-16 = 5; 50 percent of 5 is 2.5, which rounds up to 3). If the players are allowed to both hit their drives, then select which drive to use – making the format somewhat easier – the combined handicap would be 40 percent of the total rather than 50 percent. The team with the highest combined handicap would then get 2 strokes instead of 3 (40 percent of 5 is 2). A player from each team must have 3 drives per 9 holes. For example player A must take 3 drives from the teepad within the first 9 holes, and 6 drives for 18 holes. This is regardless whether player A putted out on the following hole.
