Yellow Peril Competition advice

 Yellow Peril Competition Stableford: 

Use Howdidido Playing Handicap (=PH on label) then minus any domestic cuts

There is a separate Stableford and Team Competition, if the yellow ball is lost, players still play out the round for the individual prize.

  • On each hole, two team members play their own white ball for the individual Singles Stableford Scorecard and one plays the "yellow Peril" ball for team Scorecard. If YP player gets 2pts they add that to their own singles scorecard and also on the Team Scorecard.
  •   Take "yellow" ball in rotation. Lowest handicap index on first hole: Middle handicap index on second hole: Highest handicap index on third hole. Keep to this order for the 18 holes. 
  • If the Yellow ball is lost no more points can be added to Team Score.

A team that completes the full 18 shooting 34pts and returns the yellow ball to the Starters room would trump a Team that shot 35pts but lost their ball on e.g. the16th hole.
