FairGolfMatch.Com tracks each player's performance and creates teams based on facts, not opinions and wishes.
FairGolfMatch.Com allows evenly matched teams to be created from a large group of golfers with a wide variety of handicaps and skill levels.
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 since these scores are most likely to determine match results. Total scores are also taken into consideration, but are weighted lightly to avoid the "sandbagging" factor.
The Match Rating is the rating used to calculate teams for best ball, 2-ball, and 3-ball matches. It is based on the average number of points earned for pars, birdies, eagles, etc. that the golfer makes during their rounds. The match rating is weighted more heavily towards the number of birdies (3 points), eagles (6 points), and pars (1 point) a golfer makes during a match, since these scores are most likely to determine the winner of a hole during the match. It does not uses actual golf scores since many times during a match a golfer picks up or stops playing when he is out of the hole. This reduces the effect of a golfer purposely "tanking" to lower his match rating.
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, and 3-ball 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 are selected.
Selected matches are rated as "Excellent", "Good", "Fair", and "Not A Good Match" based on the total rating of each selected team.
