The competition is played hole by hole. If a player shoots a birdie or better he wins that hole and marks it with a +. If a player shoots a bogey or worse he loses the hole and marks it down with a . A player halves the hole if they shoot par and this is marked with a 0. The lost holes are subtracted from the won holes to give a final score.


  • Hole 1 – Par 3

You shoot a Par. Result 0

  • Hole 2 – Par 5

You shoot a 3. Result +

  • Hole 3 – Par 4

You shoot an 8. Result

  • Hole 4 – Par 6

You shoot an 4. Result +

End Result: 0, +, -, + = +1
