Can anyone provide a file or link for the player cards used in the tri-fold leader boards?

I love match play. It is, as far as I know, the way golf was intended when it was first created. A series of 18 head to head challenges. Unfortunately, to hold a tournament with a lot of players, stroke play became the tournament format of choice. With some noodling and some creative sessions with friends, here is a format that I believe closely echoes the original intent of golf while allowing a tournament of 64 players, all played in one day - which is how we like our tourneys up here in New England.
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.
Round 1: 16 Foursomes
Note: I like the groups to be created randomly, but adventurous TDs can try to rank all the players and bracket them (caution: this is a great way to create dissension and bickering ;-)
Round 2: Semifinals
Four Lead Foursomes
Four 2nd Place Foursomes
Four 3rd Place Foursomes
Four 4th Place Foursomes
Round 3: Finals
The winners of each of the four lead foursomes play a final Quasi-Match Play round.
Order of top 24 players, who get a payout.
1st-4th: Order of finish in Round 3 Finals
5th-8th: Finished in 2nd place from one of the four lead foursomes in Rd2
9th-12th: Won one of the 2nd Place Foursomes in Rd2
13th-24th: 3rd place in lead foursome, 2nd place in 2nd foursome, 1st place in 3rd foursome
