Four Ball has been part of the Presidents` Cup since the tournament began in 1994; It has also been used in the Solheim Cup since the beginning of this event in 1990. A four-ball competition or game is one of the most popular formats at the club level and local golf tournaments. The second category concerns disqualification sanctions. These are divided into two subsets in accordance with the Rules of Procedure: (i) a violation by one partner and (ii) a violation by both partners. In subset (i), an example would be if one of the partners agrees to swing a golf rule (for example, the agreement to allow short putts in the hitting game). In subset (ii) would be an example of a break of both partners in stroke play when both players arrive at the first tee more than five minutes after their scheduled start time. It should be noted that in all other cases where a violation of a rule is a disqualification and is not specified according to these two rules, the competitor will only be disqualified for the deviation in which the violation occurred. Due to the four-ball team nature, there are some minor differences in the rules of the four-ball competition. Article 23 deals specifically with these differences in rules in four areas.
Rule 23-2 covers the scoring of four balls; Rule 23-5 is for actions that affect your partner`s gambling (and vice versa); and rule 23-6 deals with the game order of your page. There are eight sections in section 23, so be sure to learn the full rule. In the four-ball ball, also known as the best ball or ball, two partners or (pairs) play together and hit their own ball on each shot for each hole. Sometimes abbreviated as 4BBB. Four balls are usually played in match play, with two teams of 2 people competing against each other. In fact, that`s where the name “four balls” comes from: in a four-ball match, there are four golf balls at play on each hole. As for the biggest international tournaments of the amateur team: the Walker Cup does not use four balls, the Curtis Cup does. In a stroke-play competition, participants are paired and play as a team. Each golfer plays his own ball; The team`s score on each hole is the lower score of the two players. Only one of a pair is needed to complete each hole. The winners are the team with the lowest total score on a set number of holes.   Since 2017, this format has been used with the quartets of the Zurich Classic on the PGA Tour.
 Four-Ball comes in two forms: Matchplay and Stroke Play. Four-Ball Match Play (Rule 30) is a game in which two players play their best ball (lowest score on the hole) against the best ball of two other players. In the four-ball striking game (rule 31), two competitors play as partners, each playing their own ball. The lowest score of the partners is the score for the hole. In both forms of play, if a partner does not complete the hole, there is no penalty as long as his partner returns a score for the hole. In a matchplay competition, a four-man ball consists of two teams of two players who compete directly against each other. The four golfers play their own balls throughout the round (instead of alternating shots); Each hole is won by the team whose member has the lowest score.   This form of golf is often played in team golf competitions such as the Ryder Cup,  Solheim Cup and Presidents Cup.
Four Ball is a style of team golf commonly used in group competitions, including the Presidents Cup and Ryder Cup. Since the rules allow a great game from a teammate to cancel out a partner`s less than excellent play, it made strategic sense to pair an aggressive player with a consistent player. This strategy allows the aggressive player to take advantage of the chances of scoring weakly, while the regular player is there for a save if the aggression of his partner turns against him. According to the USGA Rules of Golf, the four-ball striking game is “a competition in which two competitors play as partners, each playing their own ball. The lowest score of the partners is the score for the hole. If a partner does not finish the part of the hole, there is no penalty. The four-ball match game is defined as “a game in which two players play their best ball against the best ball of two other players”. In fact, you will sometimes hear the format called the “best ball”. For this reason, the format is also often called Fourball Better Ball (4BBB), because whenever the best score of the pair is counted. In the Ryder Cup for the first two days, the Fourball is played during the morning sessions and the Foursomes in the afternoon. Four balls can also be used as a stroke-play tournament format, but if this is the case, they can be designated by a different name (especially in a club or association tournament or similar), such as a better ball or a better ball for 2 people.
Four-ball is a paired game format in the game of golf. It is also known as the best ball and best ball, although the latter describes a variant with teams of 3 or 4 players in more detail.  It is sometimes abbreviated to 4BBB. Whether someone is participating in a four-ball game or a four-ball stroke-play competition in their club, it is important to know the rules of these forms of play and how they differ from stroke play in match play. In match play, a four-ball consists of two teams of two players per team, who compete directly. In both forms of play, penalties are divided into categories. The first category is when the entire page is penalized for a violation by a partner on the page. An example of this is when one of the partners in the four-ball hitting game starts his round with more than 14 bats.
Each player would be punished with two shots plus two shots on a next hole. In Stroke Play, competitors are paired and play as a team. Each golfer plays his own ball until the end of the hole. The team`s score on each hole is the lower score of the two players. Most of the largest and most well-known professional golf team tournaments, such as the Ryder Cup, Solheim Cup and Presidents Cup, play the four-ball match format.
