Team Spirit

Guys, if you can break 80 consistently (and ladies, if you can get it around under 90), you now have a chance to spend a week at a great golf course while competing for a national title. The USGA has just announced the inaugural sites for its brand-new Men’s and Women’s U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championships, and they’re four beauties: The Olympic Club (shown above) and Bandon Dunes will host the men and women, respectively, in 2015; Winged Foot and Streamsong will be the venues in 2016. Any man with a USGA Handicap Index up to 5.4 is eligible, while for women the limit is 14.4. There are no age restrictions and team partners may be from different clubs and states, even different countries. Sectional qualifying will determine the final fields—128 two-man teams for the men, 64 for the women. Each team’s score will be determined using its better-ball score for each hole. Once on site there will be 36 holes of stroke-play after which the field will be reduced to the low 32 teams and match-play competition will determine the winners. So start practicing.
