Triangle Round Robin
For its first nine years it was played using a "round robin" format, similar to the format used in the PGA Tour's Goodall Palm Beach Round Robin. The field was 16 players and they played in four foursomes over five rounds for a total of 90 holes. A player earned or lost points on each hole, in a match play style, based on her score versus her three opponents for that round. A player scored "+1" for each hole won and "-1" for each hole lost to each opponent. The groups were shuffled after every round so that every player played one round against every other player. The player with the most points after five rounds won. In 1962, the tournament shifted to a tradition 72-hole stroke play event.
The tournament sponsor was the Triangle Conduit and Cable company and its owner John E. McAuliffe.
