Total score and best ball competition
The Team vs Team screen allows you to award points for team match play competitions. There are two kinds of points for Team vs Team competitions:
You may choose to use total score or best ball or both kinds of competition.
Total score competition
You may set the number of points awarded for one, two or all of these three items:
John Smith and Ted Rogers are playing as a team against Tim Jones and Fred Simpson for 1 point per hole, 3 points for match play, and 5 points for medal. They shoot the following scores:
Jones and Simpson have a combined handicap of 9, (2 + 7)
Smith and Rogers have a combined handicap of 12, (1 + 11)
Smith and Rogers (as a team) receive 3 strokes (12 - 9). A stroke is given to Smith and Rogers on hole 8, 1, and 3, the 2nd, 4th and 6th handicap holes.
The scores are adjusted and points are awarded as follows:
Smith/Rogers wins holes 1,3,5 and splits hole 2 and 7
Smith/Rogers wins 4 holes so they win no match points ("most holes won")
Smith/Rogers’ combined net scores equal their opponents, so they split the medal points. (5 ÷ 2) = 2.50
Jones/Simpson wins holes 4,6,8,9, and splits hole 2 and 7
Jones/Simpson wins 5 holes so they win the match points ("most holes won"), 3.0
Jones/Simpson’s combined net scores equal their opponents, so they split the medal points. (5 ÷ 2) = 2.50
Best Ball Competition
If you do a team Best Ball Competition in addition to points for Player vs Player, then you may need to change how handicap strokes are applied so that strokes are applied and points calculated correctly.
Award hole by hole points to the team that has the player with the best ball. League Manager calculates points as follows:
You may set the number of points awarded for:
John Smith and Ted Rogers are playing against Tim Jones and Fred Simpson for 1 point per hole. They shoot the following:
Smith has the low handicap of 5. He will play from scratch.
Rogers receives 10 strokes (15 - 5 = 10).
Jones receives 12 strokes (17 - 5 = 12).
Simpson receives 13 strokes (18 - 5 = 13).
The gross scores are adjusted to net scores and points are awarded as follows:
Smith/Rogers win holes 3 and 6 and split holes 1, 2, 4, 7, 8 and 9. Total of 5.0 points
Jones/Simpson win hole 5 and split holes 1, 2, 4, 7, 8 and 9. Total of 4.0 points
Calculation of points
In the total score competition, the total net score of one team is compared to the total net score of the opposing team. League Manager calculates points as follows:
Divide team points equally among members
If you mark this option (see lower left corner in Figure 1 above), any “team” points will NOT be assigned to the team, but will be divided equally among the members on the team and assigned as individual points to each team member. This applies for both Team Aggregate Competition and Team Best Ball Competition.
