This tournament will run similarly to the qualifying portion of the Classic PinGolf at NWPAS, with just a reduced number of Tee-Off times (72 slots).
• Two players tee-off at a time, but still play as one-player games. May 15th update: Reserve your tee time online at https://tinyurl.com/memorial-day-masters-2023
• Every machine will be set to 5-ball play, and will list a target score. Reach the target score in 1 ball for a hole in one. Reach it in 2 balls, then get a score of 2 strokes, and so on. If the target score is not reached after 5 balls, then earn a stroke score of 6 to 7, depending on how close to the target score reached. The score ranges (0-50% and 50-100% of score) will be shown on a note on the backglass.
• When a player reaches their target score or their game ends, they should raise their hand to call over the scorekeeper to verify and record the score.
• Extra balls can be played, and counts as an extension of the current ball being played. Thus if a player earns an extra ball on ball 2, and during that ball 2 they reach the target, they get a score of 2.
• When a target score is reached, the player stops playing and informs the scorekeeper of the number of strokes it took them. All subsequent balls for that player will be plunged.
• Scores on each machine will be tabulated. The players are ranked from lowest to highest score, with lowest score being declared winner at the end of the event.
TOP 16 FINALS at 6 PM, players will play in a four-player five-strike fair-strike tournament, using Pingolf scoring.
• During this round, players are assigned to a machine (hole). Scoring is the same as during qualifying round. The winner of the game gets no strikes. The loser of the game two strikes. 2nd and 3rd in a 4-player game, or just 2nd in a 3-player game, will get one strike. In case multiple players are tied for number of strokes on a hole, the tied players only move on to the next hole and play a 3-ball game. If a player doesn’t reach target score, they still get a score of 6 through 7. If there is still a tie, tied players move to next game, and begin the hole-in-one challenge: If one of players gets a hole-in-one and other player(s) doesn’t, that player wins. If no player gets a hole in one, highest score wins. If both players get hole in one, they move on to next machine and repeat this hole-in-one challenge until someone does not get a hole-in-one.

Players must show up to at least 15 minutes before their scheduled tee-off time and pay their $10 entry fee, or may lose their reserved tee-off time to someone on the Standby list. Registration closes once all tee-off times are filled. Players can get onto a standby list if available to play and there is a no-show.
