creates golf matches and teams based on the true abilities and previous
competitive scores of the selected participants to provide evenly
talented teams. No longer do you do have to deal with "loaded" teams of
opponents who "just want to play on the same team" (not to mention they
want a better chance to win your money). No more hearing "I'm a 6
handicap, but I'm really playing bad right now and I need strokes".
FairGolfMatch.Com tracks each player's performance and creates teams based on facts, not opinions and wishes.
FairGolfMatch.Com determines match pairings and teams based on the
weighted results of each player's last six rounds and last 30 rounds of
golf. Primary emphasis is placed on a player's last six rounds. Results
are based primarily on the numbers of pars, birdies, and eagles a player
makes during each round. Total scores are also taken into
consideration, but are weighted lightly to avoid the "sandbagging"
factor. This method gives a good picture of how a golfer is playing at
present as well as how he has played in the past. A golfer's rating is
adjusted for the slope and course rating at his home course, and is
applicable at any course where he plays.
The method used to calculate a golfer's individual rating has proven
to be very effective in selecting teams for best-ball, 2-ball, 3-ball,
and dogfight matches.
FairGolfMatch.Com allows the choice of 2, 3, 4, and 5-player teams.
Potential matches can be compared based on team size before final teams
Selected matches are rated as "Excellent", "Good", "Fair", and "Not A
Good Match" based on the total rating of each selected team.
Individual scores are easily and quickly entered by team so that match results can be calculated at the end of a round.
Golfers do not need to enter detailed scoring summaries of their
rounds to maintain a Golfer Rating for team and match selection. A
Summary Score showing the number of eagles, birdies, pars, bogies, and
"unmentionables" can be entered for each round if detailed statistics
are not desired.
