Golfhos 2008 Tournament -- Preliminary Chatter
« on: May 02, 2008, 05:29:07 AM »

So, with the lessons of the Golfhos Ryder Cup firmly in our rear-view mirrors, a new chapter is poised to begin.  While I think we DO have the numbers for a "tournament", I think we're below critical mass for a team event.  Plus, it's been done.  For your consideration, I suggest:

a. Match-Play Championship event -- nine-hole handicapped match-play competitions, with the winner advancing into the next round.  Sucks for those knocked out in Round 1, though, but perhaps there could be a couple consolation matches to determine the Best Loser.

b. Round-Robin event -- everyone plays, say, three handicapped nine-hole matches against randomly-drawn opponents.  The four best records advance into semifinals, the two winners from those matches heading into the final (and the two also-rans into a consolation match).  Maybe a consolation match between the two with the worst round-robin records, too (teh sukkiest of teh sukk).

c. Tour-style event, but without the courtesy cars, the great course conditions, or the hospitality tents (sorry, stroh).  Everyone plays two nines, we impose a cut, everyone plays two more nines.  Medal play, but again, handicapped so more than two people have a chance.  Anyone plays the first two nines substantially better than stated handicap is cut and ostracized.

I like the Round Robin style but that might be a bit of a scheduling nightmare. That would be my first choice and Tour-style second. I think the tour-style will be the easiest of the 3 to do.

Nice post Claven.  Thanks for getting it started.

I have no preference.  Each scenario works for me.

Whatever.  I just want to own Clive's ass.  Figuratively mostly.
