HOW IT WORKS:
PIN GOLF QUALIFYING –
Each Pin-Hole will consist of a pinball machine with a TARGET SCORE. As in any golf event, a lower tournament Pin-Strokes score is better. The number of balls it takes for the player to reach that target score will represent the number of Pin-Strokes earned for that hole. Should a player not reach the target score after a full game is completed, a stroke value will be determined based on how close the player was to the target score at the end of their game.
For example, with a target score of 10 million points. A player will continue playing the game until he/she reaches 10 million points. If reached, the number of balls it took to reach that score will be recorded for that Pin-Hole. If the player fails to reach the target score after 3 balls are played, they will be awarded a score based on how close they were to that target. Here is an example of the possible breakdown:
9,000,000 – 9,999,999 points = 4 strokes
8,000,000 – 8,999,999 points = 5 strokes
7,000,000 – 7,999,999 points = 6 strokes
6,000,000 – 6,999,999 points = 7 strokes
4,000,000 – 5,999,999 points = 8 strokes
2,000,000 – 3,999,999 points = 9 strokes
0 – 1,999,999 points = 10 strokes
PLAYOFFS / FINALS will be a Pin-Golf elimination tournament
