About The International Tournament:
The PGA Tour event known as The International was part of the tour schedule from 1986 through 2006, when it was canceled due to the lack of a title sponsor and the tournament founder's dissatisfaction with its date on the schedule.
The International was the only tournament on the PGA Tour schedule ever played using the Modified Stableford scoring method, where hole scores are counted as points rather than strokes. The scoring used at The International went like this:
- Double Eagle: 8 points
- Eagle: 5 points
- Birdie: 2 points
- Par: 0 points
- Bogey: minus-1 point
- Double Bogey or Worse: minus-3 points
PGA Tour The International Records:
- Overall: 48 points - Phil Mickelson, 1997; Ernie Els, 2000
- Tournament course record: 20 points - Greg Whisman, 1992; Tom Purtzer, 1997
The International Golf Courses:
Only one golf course ever served as the site of The International: Castle Pines Golf Club in the Denver suburb of Castle Rock, Colo.
