Fred Brand & Semple Brothers Foursomes Championships
Longue Vue Club in Verona, PA

Monday, July 20, 2020

The Competition is 18 Holes of Foursomes Stroke Play. Players are encouraged to review Rule 22, Foursomes, USGA Rules of Golf.  In the case a provisional ball needs to be played for a ball that may be lost or out of bounds, the partner plays such a ball, not the player who made the original stroke.  Partners must switch the order in which they play from the Teeing Ground for the second round to ensure each player has played a shot from all eighteen Teeing Grounds.  Play is governed by the USGA Rules of Golf. In the event of a tie for first place, a hole by hole playoff will take place on holes to be determined by the Committee.

Practice— Practice rounds will not be available for this event.
