Details: The Championship will be a bracketed match-play elimination tournament (similar to the Holly Challenge). No handicap strokes will be provided. Players will be bracketed based on a random drawing. An uneven number of players will result in a bye for that round determined by the order drawn in the bracket.
A nine-hole "course" will be laid out on the range putting green. There will be a shotgun start on all 9 holes. There may be multiple
shotgun starts depending on the number of entrants.
A coin toss will determine who will putt first on the starting hole, then opponents will alternate putting first on each following hole.
Opponents may watch each other putt. Players winning their matches will continue through the bracket until the ultimate PMGA Putting Champion is determined. Matches tied after 9 holes will have a one-hole putt-off. The competitor closest to the holes wins the match. In the event of a tie in the Championship match, the competitors will play a maximum of 3 extra holes to determine the match-winner. If still tied after the 3 extra holes, another hole will be played with the person whose ball is closest to the hole declared the Champion.
Additional details, if required, will be provided at the time of the event.
