Here's an outline of the process for creating a standard Ryder Cup format for two 8-man teams.  You can adjust it for your league...

PREPARATION:

·Create 18-hole league composed of 8 players per team, 2 teams and 3 events

·Enter golfer names into Event 1

EVENT 1:

·Format = 4 foursomes in which the two team members in each foursome alternate shots

·Given this format you'll likely want to lock all handicaps to 0 which you can do via the Tools menu

·While viewing Event # 1 configure Point Calculation Parameters (in Setup menu) as follows…

  Tab 2 (Player vs Player): Points per Match (Match Play 'Most holes') = 1

  Tab 3 (Team vs Team): Teams play each other in = 4somes (2 vs 2)

·Enter score in the top player of each two-team-member pair

·Calculate score and lock player scores/points which you can do via Tools menu

EVENT 2:

·Format = 4 foursomes in which all golfers play their own ball but the best ball for each two-team-member pair is used for points

·If you want to apply handicaps you'll need to manually add them to each golfer in Event 2.  Doing so should also lock the handicap which is what you want to do.

·Return to Event 1 by clicking its event tab.  While viewing Event 1 update the Point Calculation Parameters (in Setup menu) as follows…

  Tab 2 (Player vs Player): Points per Match (Match Play 'Most holes') = 0

  Tab 4 (Best Ball Competition): Points per hole = 1

·Enter score for each player

·Calculate score and lock player scores/points which you can do via Tools menu

EVENT 3:

·Format = 8 singles matches in which all golfers play their own ball and compete against their opponent from the opposing team

·If you want to apply handicaps you'll need to manually add them to each golfer in Event 3.  Doing so should also lock the handicap which is what you want to do.

·Return to Event 1 by clicking its event tab.  While viewing Event 1 update the Point Calculation Parameters (in Setup menu) as follows…

  Tab 2 (Player vs Player): Points per Match (Match Play 'Most holes') = 1

  Tab 4 (Best Ball Competition): Points per hole = 0

·Enter score for each player

NOTES:

·Matches are determined by golfer position in their team.  Golfer 1 (ie the golfer listed first) from Team 1 competes against golfer 1 on Team 2, golfer 2 (ie the golfer listed second) from Team 1 competes against golfer 2 on Team 2, etc.  If you want to "mix" up the matches between rounds you can do so by manually dragging & dropping golfers into different positions between rounds or allowing the Automatic Scheduler generate a random schedule before you play Event 1.

·The Total Score can be used to determine the winner
