Explanation of how matches are scored

Gentlemen: (2014)

 

There seems to be a bit of confusion about each match format.  The overall Team scoring is based on 22 points per match.  We allocate one point for every hole won,  Ĺ point for any tied holes and the winner of the match gets an additional 4 points.

 

The formats are:

 

First, Best Ball Ė The match is based on the best ball of each team (NET).  If team A has a score of 4 and 5 (NET after any handicap) and the other team has a NET score of 5 & 5 then team A won the hole.  If Team A had a score of 4 and 5 and the other team had a score of 4 and 6 the hole is halved since we are only playing one best ball!!!!

 

Second, Best Ball, Best Ball.  This means both balls are in play and there are 2 points available per hole.  If Team A scores 4 & 5 (NET) and Team B scores 5 & 5 Then team A wins 1 point, there is no halves.  If Team A scores 4 & 5 and Team B scores 5 & 6 then team A scores 2 points.  If Team A scores 4 and 6 and team B scores 5 & 5 then each team would have won a point so itís a net 0 on the total score.   Just as in match play you net the total points to find which team is in front.  Letís say after 16 holes Team A is ahead by 5 points.  The match is over (5 point lead with a total of 4 points available) and Team A wins 4 points plus all the holes it won and halved.  Team B wins all the holes it won and halved.  Note if a team has won the hole with 1 point, 1 Ĺ points or 2 points they won the hole for our team scoring.

 

Thirdly, Best Ball, Best Ball tie breaker.  This means you play the best ball of the team (NET) against the other team for the hole win.  If there is a tie then you go the  second ball net.  If there is a tie again, then both teams receive Ĺ point.

There seems to be a bit of confusion about each match format.

 

First, Best Ball Ė The match is based on the best ball of each team (NET).  If team A has a score of 4 and 5

(NET after any handicap) and the other team has a NET score of 5 & 5 then team A won the hole. 

If Team A had a score of 4 and 5 and the other team had a score of 4 and 6 the hole is halved since we are only playing one best ball!!!!

 

Second, Best Ball, Best Ball.  This means both balls are in play and there are 2 points available per hole. 

If Team A scores 4 & 5 (NET) and Team B scores 5 & 5 Then team A wins 1 point, there is no halves. 

If Team A scores 4 & 5 and Team B scores 5 & 6 then team A scores 2 points. 

If Team A scores 4 and 6 and team B scores 5 & 5 then each team would have won a point so itís a net 0 on the total score.  

Just as in match play you net the total points to find which team is in front.  Letís say after 16 holes Team A is ahead by 5 points. 

The match is over (5 point lead with a total of 4 points available) and Team A wins 8 points. 

Then we have a 2 hole match for the press, played with the same format.

 

Thirdly, Best Ball, Total.  This means you play the best ball of the team (NET) against the other team for the first point and the total strokes

(NET) for the team against the same for the other team for each hole.  Ex.  Team A has 4 & 6 (NET) and Team B has 5 & 5. 

Team A wins 1 point since they had best ball but the total strokes for each team were the same (10). 

If Team A has a score of 4 & 7 (NET) and Team B Has 5 & 5 Then each team would have won a point for a net 0 for the hole.

The points work the same way as best ball best ball format to win the match.
