Q: Who will advance to the Season 2 SuperHero National Championship?
A: The top 6 teams or top 30% (whichever is greater) from each League Playoff will be invited to play at the National Superhero Championship this Spring in San Diego. If you are unsure if you qualified, please email email@example.com to inquire.
Q: Will my points make a difference from Season 2 at the SuperHero Championship?
A: Yes, your points will have a minor effect on your total strokes score in the SuperHero Championship. Those with over 5000 accumulated points will receive one additional stroke toward the combined score. Example, if the sum of the 2 players points is greater than 5000, and the combined score is a 70, they will post a final score of 69.
Q: What if I qualify but I don’t have a team member available to participate?
A: Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you are looking for a teammate. Include your league and handicap. In the event there is an odd man out at the event, that player will still be able to play as a solo and still win individual contest prizes – however, the individual may not win the tournament as it is a team event.
Q: What is the format for National Championship?
A: 2-person best ball is a golf format for teams with two golfers. Each hole counts as the team score. Example: If Player A makes a 4 and Player B scores a 6 on the first hole, the team score on Hole 1 is 4. Each team is responsible for writing down each player’s individual GROSS score per hole.
Q: Will I earn points or coins at the SuperHero Championship?
A: No. This event will be a competition to determine the National Champions.
Q: Will we be using handicaps?
A: Yes, teams will be given a gross and net score. Teams must not have more than a 5-stroke spread on handicaps.
Example: A 25 HC player cannot play with a 5 HC and remain a 25 HC; they would play as a 10 HC to maintain the 5-stroke spread. 20HC could play with a 15HC or a 25HC.
If players with greater than 5 stroke HC spread still desire to play together, the high HC player will be adjusted to within 5 strokes of the lower HC player. In addition, if a player’s gross individual score is greater than 5 strokes from the stated handicap, HGT reserves the right to update the handicap for the National Championship should the player advance.
