Good morning / afternoon / evening / night whatever time you are reading this
Welcome to the Speedway Golf Society for master and pro club players.
In Speedway Golf, players will be competing each week against 3 different people in a group called a RACE.
Within your group, the person with the lowest score will be classed as the winner and gain 5 points, next lowest score will gain 3 points and so on.
The scoring of each group is as follows (16 players)
1st = 5pts
2nd = 3pts
3rd = 2pts
4th = 1pt
If there is a tie during the Group Stage rounds, they will both score the higher points,e.g if 2 people both finish 1st, they will both get 5 points.
All rounds will be completed in the Speedway Golf Society on Xbox, including playing the 9 hole rounds in Playoff weeks.
Both rounds must be played for your scores to count as I will take the scores from final scoreboard after each event.
After 5 weeks the top 8 will compete in the Elite 8, the bottom 8 will compete in the Repechage.
Each week will be played on a different course and be run through the Speedway Golf society on Xbox.
Each week will consist of 2, 18 hole rounds and will last from Wednesday till Sunday, this allows Monday to Wednesday to be used as Playoff days, should they be needed and time for me to sort out everything admin side 😁
Elite 8 / Repechage
Each group of 8 will be split into 2 semi-finals of groups of 4
Semi Final A
Semi Final B
The best / lowest 2 Scores from each semi-final will progress to the final, giving us 4 in the final.
The best / lowest score in the finals, will be deemed the winner.
Tiebreakers - Group Stage
If there are any ties during the Group Stage phase, the breakers are as follows
If points are tied, then whoever has the most 1st place finishes will finish higher.
If 1st place finishes are tied, then whoever has the most 2nd place finishes will finish higher.
If 2nd place finishes are tied, then whoever has the most 3rd place finishes will finish higher.
If 3rd place finishes are tied, then total score from all rounds will be the tie breaker and determine who will finish higher.
If total score is tied, then a 9 hole Playoff during Playoff Group Stage week within the society where the lowest score will take the higher spot.
9 Hole Playoff system
You will be told all the conditions in a forum post so that you practise them, including the pin before you have your 1 shot at it in the society.
You will play the extra playoff games through the society and have 2 days to complete it before the next round of matches take place
All players involved in the Playoff, MUST also send a screenshot of their scorecard to me.
If there is still a tie we will do a count back starting at the 9th hole during the playoff, whoever had the lowest score on the 9th will be deemed the winner of the playoff.
If the score on the 9th is a tie, we will go back hole by hole to determine a winner.
If this is then still a tie after all 9 holes have been counted back, then a name will be chosen at random by a random number generator on Microsoft Excel, as I have run out of options by this time.
Tiebreakers - Elite 8 / Repechage
Any ties during the Elite 8 / Repechage will be determined by the 9 hole playoff system as outlined above.
General TGC Tours ruleset, i.e. no chipping on greens less than 100ft, unless obstructed i.e. rough, bunker etc
If you are unsure, then please send a screenshot with the green sloping indicators before taking your shot, take your shot and we will come to a decision afterwards. Considering most of us are sensible and will make the right choice, this will not need to happen.
If it is deemed that the chip was unnecessary, then a 2 shot penalty will be applied to your score at the end of the round.
This is my first attempt at running a society, so anything that can be improved / changed for next time, please feel free to tell me hopefully politely otherwise the Banhammer of Doom will appear 😁
If anybody is interested, we are looking at around 16 players, I will add your name to the list below, if we have more, maybe even 16 teams of 2, but let's not get carried away yet and see who wants in first
The society on Xbox will be up and running by the end of the day and we are looking at starting in about a weeks time on Wednesday July 1st, this should tie us over till the new game comes out in the summer,
Thank you taking your time and reading all this, and hopefully see you out on the course.
