Description & Format
A handicapped single elimination tournament combining players from all classes using a match-play format. The higher-handicapped player receives the full difference in Course Handicap between the two players; the lower-handicapped player plays from scratch. Course handicap is taken from the blue tees current as of the day of the match.  Winner advances to the next round until a champion is determined. 

Entry & Qualifying
Open to 16 members. Priority given to those losing their first Blanchard match, i.e. in the first round or after a first round bye, with these players invited to opt into the draw. Remaining available spots  will be filled in order of registration.  Cost of entry is $5 for those not previously competing in the regular Blanchard Cup event.  Seeding is by Blind Draw.

Match Play seeding will be posted on the website.Players must self-arrange their matches at a mutually agreed time so as to meet the deadlines published on the website.   Each player is required to promptly contact their opponents to schedule competitions.    In accordance with USGA rules 6-3 and 33-3, if a round is not played by the scheduled date, the two players will be penalized, and if necessary, defaulted according to the Men’s Club Match Play Guide.

In the event of a tie after 18 holes, the players will play off starting at hole #1, applying handicap strokes to those holes that have a handicap  number on the official scorecard that is equal to less than the differential between each player's handicap, and play each hole sudden death until one player wins a hole. For example, in a playoff between player A with a 15 handicap and player B with a 9 handicap , player A will receive 1 handicap stroke on each of the 6 lowest handicap holes (and player B will receive no handicap strokes during the playoff).

Tee Markers   
All matches are to be played from the blue tees, except if the sum of a player's handicap plus age exceeds 80, the member may play from the White Tees and use the course handicap of the White Tees.
