Thanks, She got it, hence why I can't go on Friday. It is a good reason for certain!

Everyone forgets about the long pad on 16.
This is how this event will be played. When a team gets to Hole #10, they will decide who is driving from that pad and then there partner will throw the next shot. No player will shoot 2x in a row. The person who is driving is only decided on the 1st of hole of this format, after that, the players will alternate between players.The pdga rules is how I've played alternate shot in the green country dubs twice in Tulsa. No player throws twice in a row. Jacks scenario that a team would intentionally miss a putt so the better driver could drive is a possibility, but the strokes would add up if they did it repeatedly. It is simpler to just play it as described...no player ever shots twice in a row.
......Alternate Shot is closer to a singles format, where one partner can't bail the other out. If you miss a short putt, chances are good that you'll be driving the next hole........
On Alternate shot, player A would drive, player B would take the upshot and player A would make the putt. On the next hole Player B would drive and so forth. This style format would not allow a player to throw 2x in a row.
