BMW Charity Pro-Am tournament format, pro and pro-am cut rules


SHARE THIS STORY

The BMW Charity Pro-Am format really consists of two golf tournaments going on at the same time for the 168 professionals in the field.

The 168 pros are each paired with an amateur player, forming 168 two-player teams. Those teams are grouped into 42 foursomes over the first three days, with 14 groups playing each day on one of three courses -- Thornblade Club, Furman University Golf Club and The Cliffs (Valley Course).

For the professionals, the tournament format is simple: the usual 72-hole, stroke-play tournament you see most weeks on the Web.com Tour. Lowest score wins.



For the pro-am competition, the format is net best ball of partners. That means the professional and the amateur each play each hole. The score counts for the player that has the better score once the amateur's handicap is factored. Each amateur's handicap is different.

After the first three rounds are completed, the cut rule kicks in, dropping the field to the top 65 pros and ties, the top 10 lowest scoring pro-am teams (5 teams from the low-handicap group and 5 teams from the high-handicap group), six lowest scoring pro-celebrity teams advancing to play Sunday’s final round at Thornblade Club.
