“Match play is a scoring system for golf in which a player, or team, earns a point for each hole in which they have bested their opponents; this is as opposed to stroke play, in which the total number of strokes is counted over one or more rounds of 18 holes. In professional golf, a small number of notable tournaments use the scoring system.”
Each match is worth 21 points
- 1 pt. per golf hole (halved 1⁄2 pt. each) totals to 18 pts.
- 1 pt. per 9 (front- 1 pt. / back- 1 pt.) totals 2 pts.
- 1 pt. for overall winner
For example- Player A has a handicap of 10, while player B has a handicap of 16. Therefore player B will get one stroke advantage on the 6 highest rated handicapped holes (MCG- #’s 1, 2, 8, 11, 14 & 15)
Schedule will allow every player to play each other throughout the season depending on league volume.
Points add up over the season, top 4 players make final four for playoffs in accordance to total points at seasons end. Tie breaker is head to head then wins total.
USGA GHIN Handicap applies. Each individual’s will get 80% of their 18 hole GHIN Index. For example: a 10 handicap will get 8 strokes for the 80% handicap toward the 8 hardest holes. This means they will get a stroke on the 8 hardest handicap holes, therefore a bogey can turn into a par, ect.
- If Tuesday is rained out and canceled by decision of the committee the week will become null and void, no make ups.
