Special Olympics offers varying events for competition, but in individual stroke play competitions, there are a couple of variations from the rules of golf provided by the International Federation. First, if a 10th stroke is played without holing the shot, the player shall record a score of “10x” and proceed to the next hole. In the place of a tie for first place, the winner can be decided (when a playoff is not feasible) by the number of “10x” scores on an athlete’s scorecard. The player with the fewest number of “10x” scores shall be declared the winner.
