Yellow Ball Format

This is a variation on the Best 2 from  3 AM-AM format. Before starting each team member is designated as player A, B, or C. On the 1st hole one of the 2 scores to count must be player A, followed by player B on the 2nd, player C on the 3rd and so on for each set of 3 holes. You don't have to actually use a yellow ball, although doing so may help you to remember who is the designated yellow ball player on each hole.

Note: it is always player A on the  hole No. 1, player B on hole No. 2, etc, irrespective of your actual starting hole.
