First Play Ties will be determined by Matching Scorecards (Also Known as a Scorecard Count-Back)

If a play-off is not feasible or desired, the Terms of the Competition may specify that any ties will be decided by matching scorecards. Even when the winner of a competition is to be decided by a play-off, other positions in the competition may be decided by matching scorecards. The method of matching scorecards should also provide for what will happen if this procedure does not produce a winner.

  • One method of matching scorecards is to determine the winner based on the best score for the last round. If the tying players have the same score for the last round or if the competition consisted of a single round, determine the winner based on the score for the last nine holes, last six holes, last three holes, and finally the 18th hole. If there is still a tie, then the last six holes, three holes, and the final hole of the first nine holes will be considered in turn. If the round is less than 18 holes, the number of holes used in matching scores may be adjusted.If this process does not result in a winner, the Committee could consider the competition a tie or alternatively could decide the winner by chance (such as tossing a coin). Matching scorecards is also known as a card count-back or a scorecard play-off.
  • Additional Considerations: If this method is used in a competition with a multiple tee start, it is recommended that the “last nine holes, last six holes, etc.” are holes 10-18, 13-18, etc. For net competitions where the stroke index allocation as set by the Committee is not used, such as individual stroke play, if the last nine, last six, last three holes scenario is used, one-half, one-third, one-sixth, etc. of the handicaps should be deducted from the score for those holes. Handicap stroke fractions should be applied in accordance with the rules or recommendations contained within the Handicap System operating in the local jurisdiction. In net competitions where the stroke index allocation as set by the Committee is used, such as Four-Ball stroke play, Par/Bogey, or Stableford competitions, handicap strokes should be applied consistently with how they were applied for the competition.
