How to Golf – PowerPlay Golf

POWERPLAY_GOLFLearning how to golf is one thing, but learning how to play PowerPlay golf is quite another. Some of the golf’s biggest names are hoping to grow a new take on the classic game called PowerPlay golf.

In a nutshell, PowerPlay Golf is a 9-hole variation on golf’s Stableford points scoring system using two different targets on a green. One hole is placed in an accessible area and the second hole provides much more of a challenge.

In PowerPlay Golf, golfers can choose to play to the the more accessible white flag or the more difficult black flag. If they score a birdie or better to the black flag, they earn double points. Each golfer is compelled to take exactly three ‘PowerPlays’ in the first eight holes. They then have the option of a fourth ‘PowerPlay’ on the final hole. But if they get a net bogey or worse, they lose points from their total score.

Golfers score double points for net birdie or better when playing to the black “PowerPlay” flag, but with limited PowerPlays, they must choose wisely. On the final hole, a PowerPlay birdie wins mega-points, but a bogey could spell disaster.

PowerPlay Golf was devised by British amateur golfer Peter McEvoy, a former victorious captain of the Great Britain & Ireland Walker Cup team, and David Piggins, a sports venue owner and operator. Recent additions to the PowerPlay Golf team include golf stars and legends such as Gary Player, Colin Montgomerie, Paul Casey, Graeme McDowell and Paula Creamer.
