The event that spawned the Mulligan Tour, the Memorial Tournament was played annually at the Willow Metropark golf course.   First played in 1995, the 2-person scramble format yields a pair of winners.   The tournament became an official Mulligan Tour event in 2000 and is regarded as one of the Mulligan Tour's major championships.   The Memorial Tournament moved to Gateway GC in Romulus in 2006.

The first "Grand Slam" event of the season is highlighted by a series of closest-to-the-pin challenges (each par-3), long drive challenges (men and ladies) and a fewest team putts challenge.  Additionally, all participants win a prize based on their finish in the tournament and get a hot dog, chips, and soda for lunch.

Earnings at the Memorial tournament are shown on the Overall Money Standings

2 man scramble competition

Each partner tees off.  The better drive is selected.  Each partner hits a 2nd shot from there.  Again the better shot is selected and each partner hits a 3rd shot from there.  This process continues until the ball is holed out. Men tee off from gold tees.  Ladies tee off from green tees.  Low net score wins.


Handicaps are calculated based on the MT handicap rules, which includes the tee box each member is playing. When each players handicap is calculated the 2 person team handicap is calculated as follows:

 

Player A – handicap is 12

Player B – handicap is 10

 

Team Handicap is:

Player B - (100 / Player A)

10 – (100 / 12) = 10 – 8.33 =  1.67/2.  This rounds up to 1.0

This team gets 1 stroke for the scramble event.

 

Player A – handicap is 7

Player B – Handicap is 11

 

Team Handicap is:

Player A – (100 / Player B)

7 – (100 / 11) = 7 – 9.09 = negative 2.09/2.  This rounds to negative 1

This team will play with a Plus 1 (add 1 strokes to their team score)

Handicap strokes may go negative.  If this happens, strokes are added to the #18 handicap hole, then #17, etc.

Note:
1) Mixed teams are acceptable.
2) Individual handicap differentials cannot be calculated, therefore, there is no update to individual’s MTHI from this tournament.
3) Individual player statistics are not recorded for this tournament.
4) Amateur teams (invited non-Mulligan Tour players) can play for “low amateur” honors.  No handicap strokes are granted to amateur teams.

Individual challenge prizes for:
Closest to the Pin
Mens Longest Drive
Ladies Longest Drive
Fewest putts (team)

Food (hot dog, chips, soda) and prizes immediately following the conclusion of the tournament at the course.

Mulligan Tour “pros” may play as an amateur with a non-tour player (see note #4 above).
