SkillMaster is a program designed for junior golfers to develop and improve their abilities in three of the most important physical aspects of golf: driving, chipping and putting in a competitive environment.
1) Each participant will compete in all three skills (Driving, Chipping & Putting).
2) Participants will accumulate points in each skill. The participant with the highest
number of accumulated points will be declared the Overall Champion of his or her
3) In the case of tie in the overall score, the putting rank will serve as the tie-
breaker (followed by 1) chipping and 2) driving if necessary).
4) Use of a putter is not allowed for competition in the Chip Skill. Competitors
may only use a lofted iron, hybrid or wood club for this skill. A "chipper" club is
considered an approved club for the Chip skill.
All championship scoring will be based on a 5-point-per-shot basis on driving and a 25-point-per-shot basis on the putting and chipping skill, with each participant taking five shots per skill. Each participant will accumulate points per shot in all three skills. The overall champion in each age category will be determined by the participant with the most points accumulated between all three skills.
Minimum 30m wide fairway - a shot must finish in the fairway to score points.
A ball coming to rest on the fairway is considered in bounds.
5 points for each ball coming to rest on the fairway.
Three rings are place around the hole (1m diameter, 3m diameter and 5m diameter). Each participant will attempt five 5m chip shots, five 8m chip shots and five 10m chip shots at the scoring hole. All shots will be scored on the resting point of the golf ball.
A ball coming to rest on any of the scoring lines will be scored in the higher of the rings.
Hole-in-one - 25 points
Within 1m - 15 points
Within 3m - 10 points
Within 5m - 5 points
Ball on the green - 1 point
Each participant will attempt five putts from each distance (6 feet, 15 feet and 30 feet). Putts will be measured from the centre of the hole with clearly marked scoring rings.
A ball coming to rest on any of the scoring lines will be scored in the higher of the two-point rings.
