McKees Rocks MASTERS

Formerly known as The Horrible Shot Cup Golf Holiday

It all began in 1994 when tournament founder, John Bechtel, and 3 of his college buddies went to North Myrtle Beach for a Golf Holiday. Little did they know that all these years later, the tournament would boast fields of up to 32 participants competing for The Horrible Shot Cup and Terrible Swing Plate.  After 25 years of making fun of the last place player by having their name engraved in the Terrible Swing Plate, the plate has filled-up and has been retired.

The McKees Rocks MASTERS is a 54-hole event scored by a modified modified Stableford system. This system is best for hackers. It rewards them on good holes, but doesn't penalize them for bad holes.

Points are awarded by the following guidelines:

01 point for a net Bogey
02 points for a net Par
04 points for a net Birdie
06 points for a net Eagle
10 points for a net Double Eagle
10 points for a Hole In One


Handicaps will be adjusted daily according to points earned.

NEW 2024

HCPs of 12+  19pts or less = +4  20pts = +3  21-22pts = +2  23-24pts = +1 
    25-30pts = NO CHANGE  31pts = -1  32pts = -2  33pts = -3  34pts or more = -4

HCPs of 7-11  19pts or less = +4  20pts = +3  21-22pts = +2  23-24pts = +1 
    25-30pts = NO CHANGE  31pts = -1  32-33pts = -2  34pts or more = -3

HCPs of 6 or less  19pts or less = +3  20-21pts = +2  22-24pts = +1 
    25-30pts = NO CHANGE  31-33pts = -1  34pts or more = -2

NOTE: Adjustments can take a player to the other side of 0.  That player would receive (+1) to their score, beginning with the 18hcp hole. 


Other Tournament Rules

In the event of a tie, the playoff will be 9 holes played with the same handicap as that day.  If players are still tied, then it is sudden death without handicap.

Regardless of the current scorecard at any given course, the pre-printed scorecards made at the tournament office will reflect the official hole handicaps for the championship.



The WHITE tees (closest to 6,000y) are our regular tees.  Here is the criteria for moving up:

If your age plus your white tee HCP equals 70 or more, you may request to play the GOLD tees.  However, ages 58 and under and HCPs of 5 or lower are not eligible for an automatic move-up.  All requests will be reviewed on an individual basis. 

The first year that you move up, your WHITE tee HCP AVG will be reduced by 5.

If the GOLD tee yardage is under 5,500 yards, the BLUE tees will become the regular tees and eligible players will be able to move up to the WHITE tees. 


Handicap System

Every player will be given a HCP AVERAGE that reflects their potential.  Your actual HCP for this event will be based off of your HCP AVERAGE.

HCP AVERAGES are based on an AVERAGE of 4 values.  It's your BEST 3 scores in MB over the past 5 years AND your MB Overall AVG.  Minimum 10 scores for BEST 3.  9 or less use BEST 2 + 1 Dummy

Rookies will have a Myrtle Beach Average assigned to them that reflects their ability. Rookies that play in the Tuesday Golf League will have their HCP Average tabulated using scores from Shadow Lakes.

Once your HCP AVERAGE is determined, we will subtract 72.  This will be your HCP for this Modified Modified Stabbleford Event.  For example:  If your HCP AVERAGE is determined to be 90, we will subtract 72 to get 18.  Then multiply by .75 for a grand total of 14.  That is your HCP for this event.
