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.

    • I've hit a few which I have found and they didn't impress me with anything outstanding. Other than it's designed for the budget minded golfer versus a player who wants a better performance ball. IMO, some players typically try various products, while others are set in their ways. Most better players are typically reluctant to switch ball brands under any circumstances. I'll curse at my buddy who's a Bridgestone Rep who throws the tour ball at me when we golf together. I never liked the "feel or the fact it will not stop downwind very well", but have played them and scored very well. Like they say "It's never the Indian, so it must be the arrow"  😁
    • Next time you see someone on a c*****v****e "news" program pose this question EXACTLY as you have (funny that), ask yourself why they simply pose the "question" as a "talking point" or rhetorical question. They will NEVER ask the question and then go to someone who can actually it - as people on this site can easily do. You'll just see a row of people smugly nodding their heads and smiling as if it' sa "gotcha" question. Problem is, they know that if someone was allowed to answer it, they'd be seen for what they really are. You will NEVER see famous TV  personality X say: "If a person is worried about getting COVID, and they get the vaccine, the vaccine protects them, correct?  Then why should they be concerned if I didn't get the vaccine? Here's expert Y to answer that question."
    • Mattm16... by any chance does the "16" that follows your moniker refer to your age?  If so, that could explain a lot.  I was cocky, sure of myself, hardheaded and knew much, much more than everyone who was older than me when I was 16.
    • Exactly - the notion that opinions deserve "equal time" seems pervasive.  If 99.9% of credible scientists believe something and 3% of people with no education "think" something (with nothing to back them up) they demand that their "opinion" be respected. Without any sense of irony, @mattm16 acknowledges that he "thinks" certain things but cannot justify them. He actually said the following - could there possibly be a more anit-intellectual admission? "I don't have facts to back up what I think.  I just think certain ways."  @mattm16 2021

The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov
