This is the traditional scoring method where total number of shots are counted for each individual golfer and then compared to the course’s given nominal score value (par). In stroke play, the lowest score wins.
This scoring system compares you to another golfer and instead of individual scores being posted, it counts number of holes won. Your overall total scores do not matter, only number of holes won. As you win a hole the score will change to reflect how many holes you are beating your opponent by (ex: 1up, 2up, etc.) or losing by (1down, 2down, etc.). It will only play the number of holes needed to define a winner. Therefore if you are 6up with 6 holes to play it will list your score as 6up-dormie which means that even if you lose all of the remaining holes you will still tie your opponent. If in dormie, a hole ends in a tie or is won by the leader then the match will be over.
This assigns a point system to your score and is different in that the highest score is best. As you get certain results on holes it assigns points to those results. Your total score will show as a point value rather than a stroke value or comparison to a course’s par. The points awarded are:
· 4-under on a hole 6 points
· Double Eagle 5 points
· Eagle 4 points
· Birdie 3 points
· Par 2 points
· Bogey 1 point
· Double bogey or greater 0 points
This assigns a point system to your score and is different in that the highest score is best. As you get certain results on holes it assigns points to those results. Your total score will show as a point value rather than a stroke value or comparison to a course’s par. It is different from normal Stableford in that the point values are different. It also penalizes you for poor holes. The points awarded are:
· Double Eagle 8 points
· Eagle 5 points
· Birdie 2 points
· Par 0 points
· Bogey -1 points
· Double bogey or worse -3 points
If you happen to skip a hole in the virtual courses it will give you -3 points for the hole(s) skipped.
In the Virtual Courses’ Skins game it will assign a “skin” to a hole and the players will compete to win the skin. There is no money value assigned to the hole, rather the players are just playing for the “skin”. When a player wins the hole then they win the skin. If the hole is tied then the skin carries over making the next hole worth 2 skins. If a player wins that hole then they are rewarded with both skins (2). Total number of skins won is recorded and the player with the most skins is the overall winner.
