To begin, make sure you are on event #1 in your League Manager Desktop Software.
You will find the Point Calculation Parameters by clicking on Setup from the header menu.
STEP 1 - View Tab 2 Player Vs. Player:
- Delete the "1" from the points per hole box. This is a default. Type "0" (zero).
- Type the number of points to be awarded in the circled box under "RANKING COMPETITION".
- In this example we have chosen to award 4 points for 1st place, 3 points for 2nd place, 2 points for 3rd place and 1 point for 4th place.
- Notice the gray box at the bottom of the image; it totals 90 event points because this example plays on a 9-hole course (10 total points per hole x 9 holes = 90).
- the system awards points to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place finishers for each hole.
Step 2 - Make sure there are no other points on tabs 3 through 6.
Step 3 - View Tab 7 Other:
- Make sure your Type of Play radio button is set to play head to head.
- Click the Finish button to save your settings.
Step 4 - Setting the correct option in Handicap Calculation Parameters.
- Make sure you are viewing event #1.
- From the header menu, click on Setup then click Handicap Calculation Parameters
- Click the OK check mark at the lower right corner of the first page
of the Setup Wizard on the first page. This will advance you to the
screen that looks like the image below.
- As shown in the image below, make sure your radio button is set to B. One Player versus Many then click the Next button. This will advance you
to a new screen.
- Click the Next button again and then click the Finished button to save this setting.
ADDENDUM: The Scorecard
- The (+) sign represents handicap strokes. Lowest handicapper plays from scratch (0 handicap). In this case, James Wood has a 9 handicap. Tom Wisenbaugh receives 2 strokes (+'s) since 11-9=2. John Moar has 4 strokes (13-9=4) and James Miller has 3 strokes (12-9=3).
- Each players "hole" score is ranked and points earned are entered below the scores in the Team #01 and Team #02 area.
- The system takes into consideration strokes (+'s) and ties when calculating rankings and awarding points. Hole #1 is an example of a tie for 2nd and 3rd place.
- To calculate a tie: The system will take the points assigned in tab 2, add them together, and then divide by the number of affected players. In this example 2nd and 3rd place tied so we award 3 points for 2nd place and 2 points for 3rd place giving us a total of 5 points. 5/2 = 2.5 points for Tom Wisenbaugh and 2.5 for James Miller.
- The lower right corner of the scorecard is the sum for 9 holes. In this example team 2 scored 45.50 surpassing team 1 by 1.0 points.
