Media alert for immediate release

Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational Amateur Qualifier

Who: Female amateur golfers

What: The Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational is holding a one day 36-hole female amateur qualifier for players with a USGA 2 handicap or better to compete for a sponsor exemption in the 2019 Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational, July 15-20 at the Midland Country Club. The qualifier will be played on Monday, June 17 at Bucks Run Golf Club in Mount Pleasant, Michigan.

Amateurs will be able to pick their own teammates in advance and register as a team. The amateur qualifier will be broken up into two team formats. The first 18 holes will be played in alternate shot format; golfers will decide in advance who will tee from the even holes and who from the odd (thus, each player tees off on nine holes). Players alternate shots until the ball is holed-out. The second 18 holes will be a four-ball stroke play, a competition in which two competitors play as partners, each playing their own ball. The lower score of the team is the score for the hole. If one partner fails to complete the play of the hole, there is no penalty. Only 30 teams who qualify with a USGA 2 handicap or better will be selected on a first come first serve basis.
