Flags, also commonly known as Last Man Standing or Tombstone - is a competition format in which golfers begin the round of golf with an allotment of strokes, then play the golf course until their strokes run out. The game gets its name from the fact that little flags are usually given to competitors to stick in the ground at the point from which their final shot is played.
