Lancaster makes PGA Tour
That's Poor Golfer's Association Come to either get all those
bad dice rolls out of your system before the rest of the week,
or hope to ride your current wave of die roll luck to become
the Tiger Woods of the WBC.
The Thursday late night die rolling tradition lives on. This
year's event will continue the last two year's format which shortened
the tournament but has increased the drama and intensity. All
players will play the first 18 holes on the newly lengthened
2002 Augusta National course, using the long MI tee on hole #12.
All golfers used again this year will be from 2003, 2004 and
2005 golfer cards. That means there will be three Tiger Woods
cards in play this year, plus many other golfers fans of the

The four lowest scores will be matched for a skins game Final
on the first 12 holes of the Lancaster Host Golf Resort (the
course found on the grounds of the Lancaster Host, site of the

Any ties for determining the four Skins game players will
be resolved using a sudden death playoff beginning on the back

If the Skins Game is tied after 12 holes, sudden death will
be played between the tied players only starting on hole #13
at the Lancaster Host Golf Resort.
ALL players will be required to use courses provided by the
First edition rules will be used, which means we are not using
the Trouble or Gambling rules, nor will the roll of doubles allow
players to ignore parenthesized negative modifiers to shots as
in the second edition.
Even if you don't compete in the tournament or advance past
the preliminary round, you might want to hang around to observe
the Skins game final. It's played with big foam dice that can
be viewed by all in the theater setting of the Hopewell room.
A commentator will even be providing a shot by shot account over
the PA system. Spectators have more fun than the participants
since they don't have the pressure of halving the hole to keep
their plaque hopes alive. And last year we had birthday cake!
