Default Rules for threesome golf betting game Baseball?

Does anyone know the rules for a golf betting game named baseball? Worked good for threesomes. Their is a set number of points per hole. Each persons net score is given a portion of the set number of points based on how everyone did. All points on any given hole always added up to the set number. I probably don't have it right, but hopefully I recall enough for someone to recognize it and help fill in the blanks!

I Googled this. It looks like a good way for a threesome to "make it interesting". It's also called Nines or Nine Points.

Each hole in a round of Nine Points has, as the name suggests, nine points at stake, but those points are divvied up among the three golfers in the group. Here's how the points allotment breaks down on each hole:

The golfer with the lowest score of the group gets five points.
The golfer with the middle score is awarded three points.
The golfer with the high score gets one point.

Add the points accumulated on each hole, and the winner is the one with the most points at the end of the round.

The format is one of several that golfers have come up with over the years to provide some competition when there is an odd number of players and the group can't play partners.
When Scores Are Tied in Nine Points

Of course, on many holes, there will be ties for a low score or high score. This is how you divvy up the nine points in case of ties:

If one player has the low score and other two players tie, the low scorer earns five points and the other two get two points each.
If two players tie for low score, those two get four points each and the high scorer gets one point.
If all three players tie on a hole, they split the nine points equally—three points each.

I know a game called bingo, bango, bongo for golfing with 3 people (or more on teams) Bingo is first person on the green for a point. Bango is the person closest to the hole on the green for a point and bongo is longest putt for a point. If you get all 3 on one hole you get an extra point for a sweep so your point total is 4 on one hole. Great game for people of varied ability who play together. I always play for a pitcher of beer..

Sounds complicated. How about just playing skins?

We used to like to play Lone Wolf. Rotated first off the tee, based on that person's tee shot they would declare before the others hit if they were going for the skin on their own (Lone Wolf) or would choose a partner after the others had hit. Just a little twist and can be use with either three or four.

bingo, bango, bongo

This can be a fun game but it tends to slow the pace of play as you don’t play ready golf. You need to play honors which will slow the game down.

"Be the first golfer in your group to get their golf ball on the green (called the bingo point); Be the player in the group whose ball is closest to the pin once all balls are on the green (the bango point); Be the player in the group who is first to get their golf ball into the hole (bongo point)."

We've played this game now a couple of times for ten cents a point, and in both cases the worst loss was around $1.50. This seemed too little, so we decided to add "junk" bets too, including greenies, sandies and birdies at fifty cents each. The guys like it better than skins for a threesome.
