The Game is a 9-hole stroke play contest and requires that entrants play 9 holes of golf on the specified course with the object of hitting the golf ball into the cup for each hole. Upon completion of all 9 designated holes for the Game, the total number of strokes used by the entrant to get the ball from the tee into the cup for each hole on the golf course, plus any penalties, will be recorded as the entrant's final score (each, a "Final Score"). Entrants may play the Game only one time during the Contest Period and the Final Score received by entrant in such Game will be recorded in the Entry. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, the three entrants with the lowest Final Scores will be potential Winners.

If any ties remain thereafter, then the Winner shall be the entrant who entered a valid score in a qualifying Game first during the Contest Period, which is determined by the time the entrant's completed valid score was recorded by Sponsor.
