Defender is a game best suited for three players, although it can be played with two or four players as well. In defender, one player acts as the “defender” at each hole. The players keep rotating positions, with the other two facing off against the defender. If the defender wins the hole, they are awarded one point. If the defender ties for the best score with another player, they are awarded one point. Lastly, if the defender fails to win or tie the hole, all other players are awarded one point. The player with the most points at the end of the round wins.
