Tie Resolution (Stroke Play)- used by Tournament Coordinators to determine winners

If players are tied after 18 holes the following procedure will govern the determination of the winner:

 

a)Add the score for the last 9 holes and subtract ½ the players 18 hole handicap. If it is a team event do this for each member of the team and add their scores. The player, or the team with the lowest score wins.

b)If it is still a tie, utilize the same procedure using the last 6 holes with 1/3rd handicaps.

c)If it is still a tie, utilize the same procedure using the last 3 holes with 1/6th handicaps.

d)If it is still a tie, start with the 18th hole and match scores using the appropriate individual handicap for each player on that hole. If it is still a tie, go to the 17th hole, etc.

e)If after going through all 18 holes with no resolution, flip a coin.
