Calculating your 9-Hole handicap
The USGA method for calculating a course handicap for a 9 hole event – and the method we use – is as follows:  Take your handicap index and multiply by the slope for the 9-hole course you are playing (see those slopes listed below).  Divide that number by 113 and divide that result by 2.  Round the result up if .5 or higher, round down if under .5.    If you’re handicap index is a 6.0 and you are playing the Front 9 from the white tees the calculation would be 6.0 x 125 = 750.  Divide by 113 = 6.6371.  Divide by 2 = 3.318.  So your handicap for the event would by 3.

9/12 Giant Skins Game - Blue Tees

A “Skins Game” involves matching a players score on each individual hole against all the other player’s scores on each individual hole. If a player has a score on a hole that is lower than any other player’s score in that hole then they have a “Skin”. The prize money is shared equally by each “Skin”.

Most weekly events have a “side” cash skins game. During the Giant Skins Game event there is no side skins and everyone is automatically in both gross and net. Often there is an additional entry fee for this event to supplement the prize money (thus the “Giant” term).

See the league schedule pages for details.At the end of the season, the highest points winners in each league will qualify for this event. The number of qualifiers from each league is determined by taking a percentage based on the number of players in each league matched against the total players in the men’s club. If a player qualifies in more than one league, it just means they are qualified, no other compensations or player standings adjustments will be made.Additionally, the winners of flights in the Combination Tournament and the Club Championship will earn a spot in this event.A tee time sign up sheet will be posted on the club bulletin board following the final qualifying event. Sign up for your own tee time on the Men’s Club bulletin board no later than 1 week prior to this event.On the day of the event, all Fox Cup Championship (FCC) Qualifiers will play 18 holes of stroke play. Approximately 15 players will qualify for the FCC Shootout which will take place immediately following the completion of all qualifying rounds (i.e. same day).The event chairs will determine how many gross and how many net qualifiers move on to the shootout.The Shootout is an elimination event. All players start out playing the first hole. The players with the highest score(s) on each hole will be eliminated. This continues until only one player is left – he will be the winner. The event will be net with strokes falling on the holes as if this were the front 9 of an 18 hole event. The number of players eliminated on the first hole depends on the number of qualifiers. After the first hole, 2 players per hole will be eliminated. If there are ties for the high score, elimination will be determined by a chip-off.

TEAM FORMATION
– 2 Captains will be chosen from the 24 entrants. (Anyone wishing to be a captain can volunteer OR we will pull 2 names from a hat).
– The 2 Captains will hold a draft during the Fox Cup Championship weekend at Fox Hollow to disperse the remaining 22 players onto the two teams, Team Crow and Team Fox.
– Draft order:  Crow, Fox, Fox, Crow, Fox, Crow, Fox, ..etc. Who goes first is determined by coin flip.
– Saturday pairings will also be decided by the team Captains as well at this time.
DETAIL FOR DETERMINGING SATURDAY PAIRINGS
– Coin flip for who goes first…  assume for this example Fox wins coin flip and decides to go first…
– Team Fox puts together their first 2 man tandem.  Then Team Crow chooses a 2 man tandem to go against Foxes team.  Now team Crow does the same thing, with Team Fox choosing their 2 man tandem to match up against them.  Continue doing this til all groups are full.
– That gives us the 4-person groups for the day.
– Next the captains will decide who plays each other for individual matches within each foursome.  Group 1 and 3: Team Crow gets to pick opponents.  Group 2 and 4:  Team Fox gets to pick opponents.
– After Saturday round is complete, the same method is done to determine Sunday pairings, except the team that is behind will win the initial coin flip and get to decide if they go 1st or 2nd.
