*By Michael Hartley*

Welcome to Dr Mike's Monthly MathGolf tournament! **Are you ready to play?**

**Every month there's a new nine-hole course**, and anyone is welcome to play. Playing MathGolf is easy.
You just bring two clubs, a wood and an iron. Then, you practice, until you can play a perfect stroke with each of these two clubs. Then, you enter the tournament! (Psst.. parents and teachers, click here!)

**For example**, you might practice until you can hit 300 metres with your wood, and 200 metres with the iron. If this month's course had three holes, of 100 metres, 200 metres and 400 metres, your score would be **5**.

- On the first hole, you'd go 300 metres past the hole with the wood, then 200 metres back with the iron, for 2 strokes.
- On the second hole, you'd swing your iron, for a 200-metre hole-in-one!
- And on the third hole, you'd use the iron club twice, scoring another 2 strokes.

**Don't worry**about the tournament itself,

**your caddy will advise you**what clubs to use on each hole. You just have to decide how far each club will drive the ball!
