Welcome to the 8th Annual MBSA Ryder Cup! This event is a prestigious event for golfers who love to play beautiful courses and enjoy friendly competition. Originated as a fundraiser for the Blair Collings Scholarship Fund, the Ryder Cup unites great people from the Building Materials industry to continue to build strong relationships.
The format will resemble a Ryder Cup Format: (It is set up so each player will ultimately know how they individually scored on the course they are playing.)
The first nine holes will be two players from Michigan playing two players from Indiana in a foursome.
After a hole is played the Michigan two person team’s lowest net ball would be compared to the Indiana two person team’s lowest net ball. The lowest ball wins the hole. This continues for nine holes until one team has won the majority of the 9 holes or the two teams tie. If a team wins their match they win a point for their state. If they tie the match, they each will receive ½ point for their state. (After a match has been won you may complete playing the nine holes so you know what you have personally scored for the nine holes.)
The second nine holes will be one Michigan player up against an Indiana player in Singles competition.
The competition will be match play. After a hole is played the individual scores will be compared and the player with the lowest net score will win the hole. This will continue until one player wins the majority of the 9 holes. One point will be awarded to state of the winning player. If there is a tie each state’s player will receive ½ point. (After a match has been won you may complete playing the nine holes so you know what you have personally scored for the nine holes.)
If there is a tie after the first two rounds of competition the final competition will be a “Horse Race”.
The two person teams will start at a designated hole and will Alternate Drives on each hole if they advance. After the first hole the 4 teams with the low scores will advance for the second hole with any ties determined by a chip off. And finally the 3rd hole has 2 teams advancing with the winner having the low score on the hole –again with a chip off if necessary to determine 1st, 2nd places. Points will be awarded as follows: 1st -2 points, 2nd-1 point.
