Is the individual national champion based off of total score or just that last round?For those of you like me who need a refresher on the format of the championship every year:
Players will first compete in three 18-hole rounds of stroke play competition.
Following the third round, the field for both the men and women will be cut to the top 15 teams and top nine individuals not on an advancing team.
The fourth round of stroke play will take place, at which point the individual national champion will be crowned. Also following the fourth round, the field will be cut to the top eight teams to move on to the match-play bracket, which will be seeded in order of finish in stroke play.
A knockout match play competition will then take place to determine the team national champion.
