Are you ready to golf?
5th Annual Byron Cox
Invitational Golf Tournament
Golf Course Qualifying Rules
1. You must realize that the game of golf is 80% mental, 10% skill and 10% luck.
2. No matter how bad you are playing it's always possible to play worse.
3. When there is a bad swing due to your inability to focus, all curse words must be less than five total in each sentence.
4. When your shot has to carry over water, you can either hit one more club or two more balls.
5. If you're afraid a full shot might reach the green while the foursome ahead is still putting out, you have two options: you can immediately shank a lay up shot, or you can wait until they are clear and top a ball halfway there.
6. If you are less of a skilled player, we expect you to share to your partners about your ideas what you would do if your were them to your partners about their golf swings.
