a tie , the better scoring entrant between or among the tied entrants will be
the entrant with the lowest combined score for the final nine (9) holes of the

the final six (6) holes for such Game. If any ties remain, the better scoring
entrant between or among the remaining tied entrants will be the entrant with
the lowest combined score for the final three (3) holes for such Game. If any
ties remain, the better scoring entrant between or among the remaining tied
entrants will be the entrant with the lowest score for the 18th hole (9th for
nine hole games) in such Game, and any remaining ties will be determined by
identifying the lowest scoring entrant for each individual game hole, in
