A Bowmaker or Bowmaker 3-Ball, also known as a 6-6-6 or 3 x 6 Best-Ball, is a form of Best-Ball competition for 4 competitors, in which the number of balls to be scored at each hole begins with one ball of the team on the first six holes, two balls on the next six holes, and three balls on the last six holes:

A Bowmaker is also played with teams of 3, but is frequently scored with Stableford points when doing so to mitigate disaster over the last 6 holes when every teammate’s score counts.

Handicap allowances for a Bowmaker are typically calculated as 90% of Course Handicap for men and 95% of Course Handicap for women.
