The most common version that we play is with 3 players, and there are 6 points available for each hole. 4 points are awarded to the outright winner (best net or best stableford etc) and runner up gets 2. Should there be a half, then the points are shared ie, 3 points each for halved winners, two points each if all three "half" or if there is a winner (4 points) and the other two half,one point each. This is effectively a two way matchplay. Some vary the game by giving all 6 points to the winner if he wins by two shots from the next player. Some will declare a winner every 6 holes. Always a bit of fun.
