2-Man Match Medal

To register or access the brackets, log into our new GolfGenius site.   New for 2021, report all match results in the pro shop.  They will update the brackets.  If you require any other assistance, contact bdgcnews@gmail.com

  • Format: 2-man teams play hole-by-hole matches throughout the season as determined by the brackets. The team with the lowest total net score wins each hole (or holes are halved if tied).  The winning team of each match advances to the next round.  
  • Use 90% of current course handicaps rounded to the nearest whole number (0.5+ up).  The player(s) with the lowest handicap(s) should always play as a scratch.  Reduce the course handicaps of the higher handicap members by the handicap of the lowest member.   Strokes should be allocated to holes according to scorecard rankings.
    • For example, assume that members with course handicaps of 5, 10, 16 and 30 are competing.  
    • Step-1 is to multiply the members' course handicaps by 90%.  5 x 90% = 4.5 which is rounded up to 5.  10 x 90% = 9.  16 x 90% = 14.4 which is rounded down to 14.  30 x 90% = 27.
    • For the match, Member A (a 5 course handicap) would play at scratch.  Members B (a 9), C (a 14) and D (a 27) would play with course handicaps of 5, 9 and 22, respectively.  So Member B would receive one stroke on holes ranked 1-5.  Member C would receive one stroke on holes ranked 1-9.  Member D would receive two strokes on holes ranked 1-4 and one stroke on holes ranked 5-18
    • Under the new World Handicap System, a secondary adjustment is no longer required for members playing from different tee boxes - just use course handicaps for each player according to tee boxes played for equitable competition (since par at Brown Deer is 71 from both the white and blue tees).
  • All deadlines must be met, or both teams will be disqualified - unless a request for an exception is submitted to the Tournament Directors, Will Barrett and Bob Cohn, and approved.  Please contact them directly (not bdgcnews@gmail.com).   Matches should not be played during club Majors.  As a last resort, any requests for flexibility require approval by the Event Chair and Club Officers.
  • 2021 deadlines for each round:
    • Opening Round - June 6
    • Top 32 - July 5
    • Sweet 16 - August 1
    • Great Eight - August 22
    • Final Four - September 12
    • Championship Match - October 3
  • Members must compete from the blue tees unless approved to play forward for the season (see Forward Tee Policy).
  • Matches must be played on a weekend at Brown Deer prior to due dates unless all players unanimously agree to play at another course and/or on a weekday. 
  • USGA rules of golf for stroke play apply and disputes shall be handled accordingly.   However, any local rules in effect due to COVID-19 on the day of your match shall take precedence (such as not touching flagsticks, ability to improve a lie in a bunker without a rake, etc.)
  • Any player without a current WSGA handicap index at the time of a match must compete as a scratch.
  • In the event of a tie after 18-holes, the following rules apply:
    • Members should request permission from the starter to play a sudden death playoff starting on hole #1.  If starting on hole #1 isn't feasible, the pro shop will attempt to suggest a different starting hole.  Regardless of the starting hole as dictated by the pro shop, handicap strokes should again be allocated as they fall on the card.       
    • If the above does not resolve the Match, it shall be considered a tie and the Match should be played over. A one week grace period will be granted if necessary.
    • If the Match is still unresolved, the team with the lowest net team Medal Score for the initial 18 holes is the winner.
  • If a player is disabled prior to the first Match, another member may replace him. Once the first match is played, there can be no substitutions of players for any reason.
  • The winning team of each match is responsible for immediately updating the prop shop staff who will update the online brackets (new for 2021).   If you note any issues the brackets, contact bdgcnews@gmail.com
