Encyclopedia > The International (golf)

The International (officially rendered in capitals as The INTERNATIONAL) is a golf tournament in the United States PGA Tour held annually (currently in early August) at Castle Pines Golf Club in Castle Rock, Colorado, where the tournament has been played since its inception. It has the unique distinction of being one of two PGA Tour events not conducted at traditional stroke play, and is the only tournament to use the Modified Stableford scoring system (the only other exception from stroke play is the Accenture Match Play Championship). Beginning in 2007, The International is scheduled to change dates to be played during the first week of July; July 5-8 in 2007 and July 4-7 in 2008. Tournament officials hope this new date will draw more top-ranked players such as Tiger Woods, as it will no longer be contested the week before a major championship. Golfer after swing. ...

It is designed to reward players for taking chances to go for birdies (or better), as the reward for a low score on a hole is typically greater than the punishment for a poor score. The golfer's scores on each hole in his round are added. The scoring operates as follows: Stableford Stableford is a scoring system used in golf. ...
