There's a gambling element to this unconventional medal competition. Competitors can gamble a "joker" on 3 holes of their choice and whatever gross score is obtained on a joker hole is halved and fractions are rounded down. A par 3 will, then, be recorded as as 1. Gamble correctly and 6 shots can be saved. The net par for this competition is, therefore, 48. Only 2 players beat this notional par and Paul Ayling smashed it, earning him a sizable handicap adjustment.
