Pinehurst

Format – 2 person team

Every hole begins with both players on a side playing drives. The two partners walk forward to the golf balls, then they switch golf balls. Golfer A hits Golfer B’s ball, from where B’s drive came to rest. And Golfer B plays Golfer A’s ball, from A’s drive came to rest. After their second shots, the partners compare the results. Which golf ball is in the best position? They select that ball and pick up the other. From the third stroke on, they play alternate shot until the ball is holed.

And that’s Pinehurst: Hit drives, switch balls for the second strokes, pick up the worse of the balls after the second stroke, play alternate shot into the hole from there.
