|BNDISC PUTTING LEAGUE|
SWISS ROUND ROBIN
The Round Robin format will consist of competing against other players one at a time.
The game scoring will be a little unique. See scoring details below.
We will play as many Rounds as time allows for.
The Player with the best Win Loss record at the end of the final Round, wins.
For the first match, each Player will be randomly paired up against an opponent
Each pair of opponents will be assigned to one of the Basket Stations
We will try to have no more than two pairs of competitors assigned to each station
(But that depends on how many people show up.)
Each match will consist of 4 Rounds
During each Round, each Player will take four putts:
The 1st putt is from 15’
The 2nd putt is from 20’
The 3rd putt is from 25’
The 4th putt is from 30’
Players will score points for every successful putt
15’ putts are worth 4 points
20’ putts are worth 3 points
25’ putts are worth 2 points
30’ putts are worth 1 point
Record each Player’s score at the end of each Round
The best possible score for a Round is 10 Points
After the 4th round, the player with the most points wins the Match
If a Player makes all of their shots during the entire Match, they get a 2 point Bonus
The best possible score for a Match is 42 Points.
The flow for each Round/Match will work as follows:
Let’s say there are two sets of competitors paired up against each other at your Station
Player A is playing against Player B. And Player C is playing against Player D
Player A should take one putt from each of the four different distances, record their score for Round 1
Then Player B takes one putt from each of the four different distances, record their score for Round 1
Then Player C does the same; And then Player D
That completes the Round
Repeat that flow for Rounds 2, 3, and 4 to complete the Match
Once both matches (all four players) are done, report the final scores to the scoring table
Once all match results are recorded, new pairings for the next Round of matches will be determined
Remember you are only competing against the one player you are paired with for each match,
even though there will probably be other players at your same Station.
NOTE 1: Depending on how many people show up, it is unlikely everyone will play against everyone else. However, the pairing match-ups after the first round are not random. We will be using an app that applies a “Swiss Style Pairing System”. With that method, players will be paired against other players based on their current records. Players who are doing well, are more likely to be paired against other players who are also doing well. Players who are not doing well, are more likely to play against other players who are also not doing well. But it is a Round Robin, so you will not play the same player twice.
NOTE 2: If you are wondering why the points are higher for shorter putts, its because that is a way to simulate the importance of putts in a competitive round of disc golf. It is important that we make all of our shorter putts. However, while it is nice, few of us expect to make all of our 30’ putts. Those are gravy.
