2-Person Better Ball is a golf format for teams comprised of two golfers. The two golfers play their own golf balls throughout the entire round and the lower score between them on each hole counts as the team score. For example, if Player A makes a 4 and Player B scores a 6 on the first hole, the team score on Hole 1 is 4.
This year each player will only receive 75% of their handicap to reduce the gap between the strokes given between players. The adjusted handicaps will be sent out to all participants before the league commences. For example, if player A's handicap is 12 and Player B's handicap is 20, their playing handicap would be 9 and 15, respectfully.
To determine handicaps for the match, the four golfers (two per side) compare handicaps. The lowest golfer plays off a 0 handicap, and the other three reduce their handicaps by the same amount. For example, if the four handicaps are 3, 9, 16 and 22, then the 3-handicapper plays off 0 and the other three course handicaps are reduced by three, therefore becoming, 6, 13 and 19.
Regular Season Scoring System
All matches will be worth 3 points. One point for the winner of the front 9-hole match, one point for the back 9-hole match, and one point for the entire 18-hole match.
Playoff Tournament Format
The SMGCC Simulator Match Play Champion will be decided in a ONE DAY, "March Madness" style tournament on SATURDAY, MARCH 30TH.
Each team will be seeded in their respective division based on the total number of points they accumulated over the 8 match season. Any divisional ties will be decided by the team with the highest number of 18-hole match wins.
The format of the playoffs is a single knockout tournament. All matches, except for the final match, will be 5 holes. Any ties will be decided by a closest to the hole showdown.
The final match, consisting of the winner of each division, will be a 9-hole match. If there is a tie at the end of the 9-holes, the winner will be decided by sudden death.
Each set of matches within each league will have the same conditions, set-up and course. This will be set up by Golf Shop Staff and pre-determined for each set of matches.
- The gimmie range will be set to 5ft. for all matches
- No mulligans are permitted, UNLESS ALL 4 PLAYERS AGREE THAT IT WAS A SIMULATOR GLITCH.
- Max score on any hole is TRIPLE BOGEY.
- All Points and Team Net Scores are to be handed into the Golf Shop after the match.
