Ladder Match Tie Breaker (to keep nightly knock out tournaments moving along at a respectable pace)
In the Event of a tie In ladder tournaments, if there is still a tie after 3 extra holes, The person who was closest to the pin in the least amount of strokes on the third and final hole wins match.
example: If the 3rd hole was a par 5 and no one reached the green in two the person closest to the pin on the 3rd shot will get the win.(must be on the green)
This means if you make it to the third hole in match play extra holes pay attention to your approach shots and the number of strokes it took to get to green.
HOW TO REPORT LOSSES:
You can report your loss as either Individual Ladder Match, or Team Ladder Match, or both. Reporting a loss for a Team Ladder match will give winners wins in the Team Ladder Standings ONLY. It will not give winners wins in the Individual Ladder Standings. You will still need to report to all winning individuals if you also choose to play your team matches as Individual Ladder matches also.
Individual Ladder Match Reporting:
Used for when you want to report a loss to another player from a 1 vs 1, stroke, skins, and alt-shot match, scramble, greensomes, etc... To report losses to other players from a skins or alt shot match, you must report to each player one at a time.
From Ladder PAGE, click on Report a Loss.
In the Winner box for team 1 - Player 1, add one winner ONLY. Then click on Report Loss at the bottom.
Team Match Loss Reporting:
This feature is optional and it's completely separate from the Individual Standings. Used for reporting losses for any team matches. Team matches are the following: 2 vs 2, 3 vs 3, and 4 vs 4. Modes can be stroke, skins, alt shot, scramble, greensomes, etc...
NOTE: You must only report to 1 winning team at a time. i.e. you played in a 3 team match, the losing team must report to one winning team first. Then they must report again to the other winning team. Only one player from the losing team needs to do the reporting.
NOTE 2: In Loser boxes, add your partner to the 2nd Player box. In the Winners Boxes, add ONLY the two winners you're reporting to.
