Strike Three

By

Definition: "Strike Three" can be played as a golf tournament format or as a betting game among friends.

It's pretty simple: At the end of your round of golf, look over your scorecard. Find your three highest individual hole scores ... and erase them. Add up your score without those three holes, and that's your Strike Three score. Low score wins.

Compare Strike Three to another game called Hate 'Em.
