Stableford

In this type of competition points are awarded depending on the score for each hole.

It was designed to speed up play - as soon as a player can no longer score a point he can pick up his ball.

A player scores one point for a bogey, two for par, three for a birdie, four for an eagle and five for an albatross.

For example, if a player scores six on a par four hole but is entitled to a shot, his net score is five - a bogey which entitles him to one point.

The points can be modified - for instance so the rewards for scores below par are higher.
