Altogether, 48 golfers from the Carolinas and Virginias are competing in the matches. A victory in each match scores one point in the Ryder Cup-style format, and if a match goes 18 holes without a winner, one-half point is awarded to each side. The event concludes with 24 singles matches on Saturday. The Carolinas Team needs 8½ more points in order to retain the Captain’s Putter Trophy, while Virginias needs 16 points for a victory.
