Default Matchplay

Does anyone have any experience running a long term match play event? I am looking for match play scorecards and a pool generator.

I have run the VTI for quite some time. After much experimentation we finally simply gave up on scorecards for it- I have regualr scorecards on hand for players who feel they need them but most people just keep it verbally. Winner is responsible for reporting to tourney central.

Pool generator in what sense? There are several online.

For VTI (and ODCC which is basically the Am VTI) pools are generated based on the prior year's finish- even teams from one side and odd teams from the other make up the new pools.

What do you mean by long-term? A league, or something similar? Or an event held year after year?

As a side note, the PDGA now includes Match Play rules in Appendix A of the 2018 rulebook along with a variety of Doubles formats.

As a further sidenote, I really appreciate this, because we have match play in our team play event, and I always (1) extend the players meeting, explaining it for those who have never played it before and (2) spend the rest of the day worrying that they didn't understand.

The beauty of it with VTI is that 11 of the 12 teams return each year and the vast majority of players on those teams have been there before. They can guide the others through it.

Insight as to why putting after the hole is decided is denied when it is acceptable under the rules of traditional golf?

Not sure specifically but I suspect it has to do with being consistent with our "no practice throws" in general rule. Ball golf allows practice shots after holing out if it doesn't slow the group behind. Disc golf still doesn't allow practice shots at any time during the round.

Without the guidance of official rules, I've been having this argument with my co-TD for years. I'm in favor of denying the unneeded putt; he's for allowing it.

Yeah, we don't have that luxury. Plus, there are too few match play events, so I'm not confident people who've been here only once or twice before, fully remember what they're doing.

One great thing for the TD, of course, is that whatever 2 people screw up, only affects their match. All I'm looking for is a winner.
