Cog Hill Pass Members Match Play Information
The Cog Hill Pass Members Match Play Championship will begin on September 1, 2022 with the semi-final and final matches scheduled for October 8th. Pass Members must register by August 30th to participate.
Players in the field will be assigned a seed number for the competition based on handicap index, as of August 29, 2022.
Players are then placed into group of four players. The number of groups will be determined by the number of participants.
Round Robin matches – players in each group will compete round robin against each of the other players in their group. Matches played to either a conclusion or a halve. Matches all square after 18 holes are not extended. Points awarded to players based on results of each match as follows: Winner 1 point, Loser 0 point, Halved each player ½ point
The player in each group with the highest point total at the end of group play advances to the single-elimination matches. In the event two or more players in a group are equal with the highest point totals, a stroke play playoff will determine the player that advances single-elimination matches.
Single Elimination matches – 18 hole matches played to a conclusion. No halved matches. Matches all square after 18 holes will be extended until a winner is determined.
All matches will be played on Dubsdread from the Combo tees. In the event that a match was not able to be complete within the schedule time for any reason, a coin toss by the administrator will determine the winner to maintain the schedule integrity.
The Final Four
The semi-finals and finals will be played on October 8, 2022 starting at 8AM. The winners and losers of the semi-final matches will tee off again at 1PM to determine the Champion and 3rd Place finisher for the 2022 Cog Hill Pass Members Match Play Championship.
Match Play Glossary
Match Play: Match Play is the game played by holes instead of by strokes.
Reckoning of Hole (status of match): Reckoning of holes is kept by the terms: so many “holes up,” or “all square” and so many “holes to play.”
Halved Hole: A hole is halved when each side holes out in the same number of strokes.
All Square: A match is all square when each side has won the same number of holes as the other side, or when each hole has been halved.
Dormie: A match is dormie when a side is as many holes up as there are holes remaining to be played.
Concession of next stroke, hole or match (Rule 2-4): When the opponent’s ball is at rest or is deemed to be at rest under Rule 16-2, the player may concede the opponent to have holed out with his next stroke and the ball may be removed by either side with a club or otherwise. A player may concede a hole or a match at any time prior to the conclusion of the hole or the match. Concession of a stroke, hole or match may not be declined or withdrawn.
