Matchbox 64 Comment Thread.
Scott Reek and I are joining efforts on a MODIFIED match play format tournament created by Steve Dodge of Vibram disc golf. I’ll be running the tournament, Scott will be collecting registrations and doing payouts. The date is set for Sunday, August 30th. Course is yet to be determined.
This thread is to allow some discussion to take place before the final format is declared. Please be civil in your comments. When the final format and course is determined, I will start a new thread specifically for that. This is for discusison only.
This will be a NON-sanctioned tournament. Ams can play Pro and accept cash without affecting their Am status. There will be two divisions offered. Pro and Am. Pro will be awarded cash, Am will be awarded credit at DDKC Store only. Each division will be limited to 32 players. Each card will be limited to four players. Eight cards per division.
Women can play but a separate division will not be offered. In order for this to work, divisions of 4 are required. If this turns out be be succesful, maybe we can start a 4 or 8 lady separate division next year.
World Cup Format:
On each hole, for each person in your group that you score better than, you get a point. In each round, you are only competing against the other players on your card.
Examples of scoring per hole:
Everyone gets the exact same score: 3 or a 4 or a 2 – No score is awarded, you put a ‘0’ on the score card for everyone.
You get a 3, everyone else gets a 4. You get a ‘3’, because you beat 3 people, everyone else gets a ‘0’
Two people get a 3, two people get a 4. The two people that get a 3 each score a ‘2’ because they beat 2 people – those that got a 4. Those that got a 4 get a ‘0’.
You get a 2, two people get a 3, one gets a 4. You get a ‘3’ because you beat three people. The two people that got a 3 get ‘1’ each because they each beat one person – the individual that scored a 4. The 4 gets ‘0’.
You get a 2, all others get a 4. You get a ‘3’ because you beat three people. Others get a ‘0’. You don’t get bonus points due to the scoring spread, you only get points for how many people you beat.
You get a 2, two people get a 4, one gets a 6. You get a ‘3’ because you beat three people. The two that scored 4 get ‘1’ each because they each beat one person. The one that scored ‘6’ gets a ‘0’.
A sequenced is thrown, i.e., 2, 3, 4, 5. The person that shot a 2, gets a '3' on the score card. The person that shot a 3 get a '2' on the score card. The person that shot a 4 gets a '1' on the score card. The person that shot a 5 gets a '0'.
Highest score wins.
Need to figure out tie breakers yet. The Vibram thread had some ideas.http://www.vibramdiscgolf.com/blog/contribute-to-our-blog#comments
