A Day spent the NGL Way…”Suds on the Green”

13 Sep

This morning some of the crew will be volunteering at a professional golf team tournament event called “Suds on the Green“.

The Sacramento Eagles open their 2008 Season on Saturday September 13, 2008 at the William Land Golf Course in Sacramento California. The Eagles Home Event dubbed “Suds on the Green”. Suds on the Green is a Professional Team Golf Shootout combined with a unlimited tasting brewfest (more than 30 brews). The event includes great beer, entertainment, food and a concert at the conclusion of the Team Golf Shootout.

We will be scorekeepers driving around in golf carts following two sets of golfers from two teams and calling in as they score so they keep the score live on www.ngl.tv.  There is three sets of each team (five teams) that will be playing each other for three rounds of Nine hole golf.

Heres is what they play:

Round 1 Best Ball

Playing Partners play their own ball until holed, with each Playing Partner recording a score on the hole. The Team whose Playing Partner posts the lowest score on that hole wins the hole and a point for their Team.

Round 2 Alternate Shot

Playing Partners alternate turns striking one ball until holed.  Playing Partners alternate tee shots, one striking tee shots on odd-numbered holes, and the other striking tee shots on even-numbered holes. The Playing Partners who post the lowest score on that hole win the hole and a point for their Team.

Winning the 9th hole of the 2nd Round scores 2 Team points.  This is where the NGL starts to “kick it up a notch.”

Round 3 Scramble

Playing Partners each strike their own ball off the tee box, the ball with the best position is selected. Playing Partners each strike their own ball from the selected position.  Play continues until one Playing Partners’ ball is holed.  The Playing Partners who post the lowest score on that hole win the hole and a point for their Team.

Winning the 9th hole of the 3rd Round scores 3 Team points.  This hole can make or break a Team’s chance to win.

At approximately 2pm(pst) I’m going to make an attempt to set up a webcam at the 9th Hole green so we can watch the crowd and the final round of play.  If everything works out, you will be able to view it live at www.nglcam.com.
