A "flag tournament" is a competition format in which golfers begin the round of golf with an allotment of strokes based on their handicap and then play the golf course until those strokes run out. The game gets its name from the fact that little flags are usually given to competitors before the round. The golfers stick those flags in the ground at the point from which their final shot is played. The golfer who stakes their flag the farthest around the course is the winner. Here's an example: Let's say your allotment is 75 strokes. You play the golf course until you hit your 75th shot, which, let's say, comes on the 16th fairway. That's where you plant your flag, from the place you played your final stroke. If no other player's flag is planted beyond yours (say, on the 16th green or 17th tee box) you are the winner.
