RULES OF TITO’S TEXAS TEAM SKINS
- Points: Each hole is worth 2 skins. Skins are divided evenly between team members that win a hole outright.
- Scoring: Lowest combined team score wins the hole. If teams tie on any hole, all skins roll over to the next hole. Skins continue to roll over until one team’s combined score on a hole wins outright.
- Wildcard – Reverse Mulligan: Each player will receive a reverse mulligan that can be redeemed at any time during play. When a player selects an opponent for a reverse mulligan that opponent must select one of the commentators to replay his shot. The opponent will then finish the remaining shots, if any, to complete the hole. Each player can only call one reverse mulligan in the round. Each commentator can only be picked one time for the wildcard reverse mulligan.
- Bonus Skins – Greenies: An individual skin will be available on each hole for the player who hits their tee shot closest to the pin. That player must make par or better on that hole for the skin to be awarded to them. Bonus skins are awarded individually not to both members of a team.
- Hole in One: A super skin (equivalent to 3 skins) will be awarded to any player who makes a hole in one on any hole.
- Donation: $10,000 per skin to each player’s designated charity.
