While the MGA enjoys tradition, it also values change and progress. And we know a good idea when we hear it. That’s why when Columbus MGA’s Chapter Leader Jason Strickland suggested we institute a rule that rewards the person with the HIGHEST gross score at each event, we were all for it. So here you go, we’re proud to present the only new rule for 2016.
2.5 KEY TO THE RED TEE - The player with the highest gross score from each event will unlock the following award. At the next event they play, they are allowed to play from one set of tees further forward than everyone else. If they shoot the highest gross score AGAIN from those tees, they can move forward another set at the next event. If they do not shoot the highest gross score while playing forward tees, they will return to the normal tees and pass the key on to its new "winner".
2.5.1 This rule is up to the awarded player. If a players ego won’t let them move forward, they are welcome to stay at the normal tees with everyone else and shoot another 147 from there.
