Knockout Rounds Played as Strokeplay


Recommended Posts

A competition is set up as a series of knockout rounds but each game is played as a 'match' using strokeplay counting (ie the winner is the one with the lowest net score).

Should each game/'match' be treated as a 2 man field strokeplay competition or should each player record their score as a general play score?

Why do you ask, and what are the differences in your mind between the two options you gave? Are you asking about whether you'd call it a tournament score or a "general play" score for handicappIng?

I wouldn't call it a "match" per se. I'd use stroke play rules and the winner advances to the next bracket.

I have been asked by the Committee of a local club and the underlying question is as you suggest. Are the scores to be returned as Competition (in WHS terminology) scores or General Play?

If the former, should each round be set up as one competition for all players (preferred I think) or a series of two man field competitions? 

Each game will be strokeplay and the lower scorer of the two players in that game goes into the next round

To the first question, I would suggest that the scores be entered as Competition Scores, as it is a competition, it is stroke play, full rules of golf, and another player to attest if that's appropriate (or required) in your part of the world.

To the second question,

I'm not sure I understand, I don't see that it matters from a Handicapping standpoint.  If you are using some type of Tournament Management software (we use GolfGenius) I think you can set up a "bracket" and instruct that system to determine the winner based on total strokes rather than on holes won.  Personally, I'd do it the old way, on a big sheet of paper with the brackets done by hand.

Makes sense.

    • Of course I know I can take more than one. And I usually do. Every now and then this seems to be a mistake I will make.  Like I said I don't really think I make too many course management decision errors. 
    • Yep, I get that. There is so much in life that needs to be prioritized over golf. Golf is still a game. Life, and the people in need to be given more priority. Sometimes I forget that. But hopefully, there will be a time in the future when you can do your 4 day golf school. Best wishes. 
    • Both. Thanks, that's interesting. I do address the ball with the driver club head on the ground. I'll check what happens when I hover it slightly. Now I'm a "low-pegger", so at impact the driver header is pretty close to the ground. I still get a few degrees upwards AoA. I try to address the ball towards the toe with driver. Just to avoid "heeliness". Could that actually have the opposite effect? My brain thinks I need to move the club "longer out"? I can also add that I'm an inside-outer, probably coming from the inside 5 degrees.
    • Really appreciate your input, I’m not going to add more than 1.5 inches as per info I’ve read and seen on some videos such as Mcgolf. It’s for my brother and the reason I’m leaning towards keeping the ping shafts is the flex suits him, I just don’t know if the butt extension is going to make the shaft stronger or not. Was hoping someone had done it before, guess I do it and see what happens. Cheers 
    • I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I usually play Wednesdays and Fridays also the odd Monday  . If I don’t play Monday I will often go and have some practice, either that or a Tuesday. I often take the Driver , 3 wood 4,5 & 6 irons out of the bag and go with the rest. Learn to hit shots with the clubs I have ,stop around the green have a few chips ,pitches putts etc.  Also I read Dave Pelz’s short game book a while back. I’ve adapted my bike and can fit a wedge on it. At night I go down to the corner of a mown area by sports fields. I take turns of which wedge, and do pitch & 2 different ‘finesse’ swings. Over summer I’ve gotten a pretty fair idea of how far I hit the various swings & it’s definitely paid dividends . I regularly get up & down from under 100 yards, especially under 40/50.  Before I just sort of guessed which club, and the other benefit is swinging slower I find I’m much more accurate with my direction.
