    • I see stroke play as harder.  In watching match play, there are a number of concedes per round, which  seems to make pace of play a little quicker.   It also takes pressure off to have to finish the hole, you blow up there is the option to concede the hole and move on.  Stroke play ain’t over till it’s over as each hole has to be played out.  
    • Positive - I had 8 birdies in my club championship over the weekend (4 new ones this year). Negative - I doubled hole 18 today when a par would have tied me for first and put me in a playoff for the title. Ugh...
    • I voted stroke play is more difficult.  With match play, all you need to do is beat one person at a time not the entire field. But even more so, in match play you can use all the skills, including gamesmanship if you want, to affect the round. In stroke play, gamesmanship is basically moot. Match play opens additional opportunities for someone who is mentally tough.
    • I can see arguments for both. I think in terms of the numbers of occurrences, stroke play is tougher in both scenarios, which is what I voted for.  In match play, especially if it is a tournament were they rank players in a bracket, not having some random drawing, then its much easier for the better players to win. #1 faces #128, and would not face a top 10 till like the final two matches. If you think of this in terms of March Madness. If the #16 seeds knock off ever #1 seed in a tournament, it is an easier tournament for the rest of the field. Still, the #1 seed has the easiest route to winning because they are continually matched up against weaker teams through out the tournament.  For stroke play, you could have like 5 people play out of their minds and make it extremely difficult to win. The #1 player in the world could lose a stroke play tournament because he is up against like 10 golfers who play above their average. While, in match play those players would be knocking them selves out of the tournament. It's like sitting back and watching the enemy kill them selves then just picking off the last person at the end.  Yea, stroke play to me is probably WAY tougher to win than match play.
