The lowest score from each side will represent the score for the side. The side with the lowest score will win the hole. Should players from each side tie the lowest score, the hole is halved. The “Four-Ball” format is played on Friday and Saturday afternoons. Four 2-women teams from the U.S. will play against four 2-women teams from Europe each day.
Single – “Single” is a match in which one player from the U.S. Team competes against another player from the European Team, each playing her own ball.
