Welcome to the Chicagoland Rap 'round season mini match play tournament for fun and internet bragging rights. For this tournament we have 24 contestants competing. Golfers have been broken out into 8 pools of 3 at the suggestion of @wseitz26.
Each golfer will schedule matches with all the players in their pool at their discretion this Fall. Golfers get 1 point for winning the front, 1 point for winning the back, and 2 points for winning the Match. Top 2 point getters from each pool will advance to the round of 16. If there is a tie within a pool, the result of those golfers match will be the tie breaker.
At the conclusion of pool play the top 2 players from each pool will advance to a 16 player single elimination bracket. Seeding will go by points earned. Seeding ties will be broken by a coinflip.
The beauty of pool play, is you have 2 people to schedule matches with, so if your schedule isn’t lining up with one person right away, hopefully you and the other person can get some action going. We still have plenty of weeks of fantastic golf weather in front of us, it would be awesome if we could conclude pool play before Winter really sets in.
Without further adieu here are your pool partners:
I was thinking each match would have a total of 4 points at stake. 2 points for winning the 18 hole match, and 1 point for the winner of each nine. I think if a nine ends all square each player should get half a point. If the match is all square after 18 holes the gentleman should agree upon a suitable playoff based on their time/venue constraints that day, i.e. extra hole(s), chip off, putt off.
Open to any feedback as this is my first time doing this.
