Everyone is encouraged to apply for a place on our Vermont Tri-State team. The Vermont Team will be made up of 30 players in three handicap divisions plus 2 alternate players from the B division. Match players will play to 80% of their handicap with a limit of no more than one stroke per nine. First day format will be modified alternate shot match play. Second day format will be three ball individual match play among the states. The 2 alternate team members will play a stroke play competition with the alternates from the other states unless needed to replace an injured or sick teammate. The substitution of an alternate player for a match player can happen at any time during play and for any division.
The following are taken into consideration during team selection: Handicap indexes with a focus on the 2023 Vermont postings. For those with previous Tri-State experience, performance statistics for the past 3 years will be used. For players who are new to Tri-States, the performance in relation to the players’ handicap for the past 3 VSWGA majors played will be used. Past alternates and those players who have traveled to ME and NH for Tri-State will be given consideration when breaking ties while ranking applicants.
For the purpose of the tournament, whatever your handicap is on June 1st, you will play to 80% of that handicap. Keep in mind, your division placement was based on your handicap on May 23rd. Your handicap could change in those seven days, and this could influence the strokes given or received during competition.
Online payment/application is available. Each applicant will be notified as to whether they have been selected for the team. Further information (time for practice rounds, meetings, etc.) will be sent to all selected team members.
The division handicap ranges and number of players are:
|A||0.0 – 14.9||10 players|
|B||15.0 – 21.9||12 players|
|C||22.0 – 30.0||8 players|
Everyone with a handicap at or below 30 is encouraged to apply for a place on our Vermont Tri-State team!
