How to "match play" Presentation

Hello Hamburgirls! Still not sure about entering the Match Play competition on August 14/15? Don't really even know what "match play" even is? Well your Events Committee has put together a virtual presentation on how to score your card in this different (but fun) style of play.
Come learn about what 'match play' is, how you "get strokes" on your opponent, and how easy it is to keep score when all you is win, lose or tie each hole.
This presentation will give you enough comfort to register for the Team Match Play event, or at the very worst, will make the Ryder Cup make more sense
😁
To attend this presentation, on July 12th at 8pm, click This link..
To find out more about the Team Match Play event, from the chapter website click on the big View Chapter Events Here button on the right hand side to view this and other events. Change the TOUR to All-Ontario or All to locate the match play event.

  • LPGA Amateurs All-Ontario Match Play Event

    8/14/2021 11:00 AM - 8/15/2021 3:00 PM
    Cardinal Golf Club 2740 Davis Drive West King City (400 & Hwy 9)
    Details Your Events Committee is pleased to announce that the All-Ontario Match Play event will be held on Aug 14 & 15 at Cardinal Golf Club, at 400 & Hwy 9. 4-person teams will play four-ball matches on day one and singles matches on day two. Will your team be declared the winners? Get your team together now, as registration opens June 7th! This event is also eligible for Canada Cup points, so come participate to earn points for your chapter! What is Match Play format? This match play event will be for teams of four players. The first day will be “Four-Ball" matches where each team is split into two pairs, and each pair will compete against a pair from a different team. Each player plays her own ball for the entire round counting the strokes taken on each hole. Each hole is won for her team by the player with the lowest net score (i.e. after adjusting for her course handicap) on that hole; the hole is “halved” if it is a tie. The team that wins the most holes wins the match. The second day will be "Singles" matches, where each player competes against one other player from another team. A hole is won by the player who has the lowest net score on that hole. The match is won by the player who wins the most holes. The team with the most points from the two matches on day one and the four matches on day two will win the competition! Match play can be great for players who tend to have a blow-up hole or two in their round, since each hole is a mini-match and the blow-up score doesn’t carry forward. It is a really fun format! For more information on the differences between match play and stroke play, this Golf Monthly article can be a useful reference.
