“We’ve made format changes in a couple of GSGA competitions in hopes of attracting greater participation,” Williams said. “We’ve added a super senior flight for ages 65 and older to our Senior Four-Ball Championship, which will consist of 12 teams that will play from a different set of tees than the championship flight. Also, the first round of the Women’s Team Championship will be four-ball net scoring, while the second round remains a scramble format.”
