5-3-1 A great game for three people. On each hole, the player with the best score earns 5 points, second-best 3 points and worst, 1 point. If players tie, divide the total number points by the number of players tied (i.e., two players tying for the best score on a hole would split 5 and 3 points, each receiving 4, while the low score would still receive just 1). At the end of the round, loser buys drinks.
