Step 2 - View Tab 3 Team vs Team

• Note: in a team competition, we call it an aggregate competition because points are awarded based on the aggregate total of team member net scores on each hole.
• In this example we have chosen to award 1 point per hole AND 2 points to the team with the best total net score for the round.
• Notice you will need to enter your specific league parameters in the left and middle boxes that the arrows are pointing to.
• Ties are divided evenly.
• Notice the middle box gives you an additional option. You may select to have your team scores based on the lowest "x" out of "y" scores.

Step 3 - Make sure there are no other points entered on tabs 4 through 6.

ADDENDUM: Scorecard: We play in teams and award point(s) for lowest team aggregate net score on each hole AND lowest team aggregate net score for round

We will use two (2) scorecards to demonstrate the difference in results based on using team strokes or player strokes. Note that Hole 5 is where there is a difference between the two methods of awarding handicap strokes.

Using TEAM STROKES - Example 1:
• There are 4 strokes awarded to Team 11 based on handicaps and they are marked in red (+) to indicate team strokes and circled in red for demonstration purposes.
• Notice under the team stroke concept, strokes are awarded on handicap holes 1, 3, 5, and 7.
• Aggregate net hole by hole results are marked with red ovals: Team 1 and Team 11 tie and earn 4.5 points toward the match.
• The winner of 2 points for lowest team aggregate net score for the round is Team 11. The net score for team 11 is 60 versus team 1 at 63.
• The overall winner with 6.5 points is Team 11.

Using Player Strokes - Example 2

• There are 4 strokes based on handicaps and they are marked in black (+) to indicate player strokes. These strokes are circled in red and the accompanying holes.
• Notice under the player stroke concept, strokes are awarded on handicap holes 1, 3,and  5.
• Aggregate net hole by hole results are marked with red ovals: Team 1 earns 4.0 points. Team 11 earns 5.0 points.
• The winner of 2 points for lowest team aggregate net score for the round is Team 11. The net score for team 11 is 60 versus team 1 at 63.
• The overall winner for the match with 7.0 points is Team 11.
