2012 Iowa Team Championships - Format/Rules/Q&A

Postby GDL17921 » Tue Feb 21, 2012 11:22 am

The 2012 Iowa Team Championships will be held at Ewing Park on Saturday, March 31st.

Team rosters are due to me either by e-mail or private messaging on this forum by 3/28/2012 at noon. See below for details of what will be required for submission of team rosters.

Format:
Each team will consist of 8 players of any age, gender, or player rating.

Round 1: 24 holes, 18 long tees, 6 temps - Best shot doubles (self explanatory)

Round 2: Quad Alternate - 18 holes, short tees, with a preset 4-man team, teams will play alternate shot (more specifics below)

Round 3: Team Alternate - 9 hole semi safari, with an 8 man flex-rotation, alternate shot (more specifics below)

Scoring:
Round 1: 1 point per doubles match, so each team can earn a maximum of 4 points. (stroke play) Ties result in half points.

Round 2: 2 points per quad alternate match, so each team can earn a maximum of 4 points. (stroke play) Ties result in a split of the 2 points. (one point to each team)

Round 3: (assuming 12 teams) team with the hot score(s) will receive 12 points, 2nd highest score 11 points, 3rd highest 10 points, all the way down to the lowest score receiving 1 point. (stroke play) Ties will result in equal points, then the next score will skip a point. For example. Team A and B shoot the hot round. They both get 9 points and the next best score will get 7. i.e. nobody would get 8 points.


Team rosters:
This is what I will need from team captains in order to make the day run smoothly:

1. List of 8 players and the designated captain
2. Four doubles pairings, labeled A-D
3. Two quad teams, label A and B, list set shooting order
4. Team Name
5. Team Captain e-mail address (or best way to communicate)



Quad alternate:
Round 2 will be a 4 man alternate shot round from the short tees. Teams will predetermine the order of play. They will not deviate from stated order. If player one drives, player 2 putts and misses, player 3 taps in, player 4 tees off on the next hole, and so on. There are NO allowances for "tap-ins", meaning regardless of how insignificant a shot one plays, it counts as shot and the next person on the stated order throws next.

8 man team alternate:
Round three will be a longer 9 hole layout where teams will determine which order they play alternate shot with their entire team. Similar to some of past year's finals, teams will play alternate shot with the team aspect of selecting who will shoot next. The twist this year is that everybody will get a chance to play this format!
Once a player has thrown a shot, they cannot throw again until the other players have also thrown. Note - if you throw 8th in the rotation, you could potentially throw again, as the first to throw in the next rotation.

Schedule:
3/28/2012 - submit your team if you haven't already!

3/31/2012:

7-8:30 - arrive at Ewing park, team captain pays entire team fee (no individual payments accepted)
9ish - round 1 starts
12-1 - lunch
1ish - Round 2
3:30ish Round 3

Fees: $200/team ($25/person)

Payout: (based on 12 teams)
1st: $1200
2nd: $600
3rd: $400
4th: $200

This event will be limited to 12 teams.

We have a grid similar to this but this is for 9 teams. Since you will have designated your doubles teams each A, B, C, D the unknown variable will be the team number. The morning of the event, team captains will draw for team numbers 1-12. This will determine the matchups for rounds 1 and 2.

Code: Select all
1. 1A, 2A     10. 1C, 3C         
2. 3A, 4A     11. 2C, 4C         
3. 5A, 6A     12. 5C, 7C         
4. 7A, 8A     13. 6C, 8C         
5. 9A, 1B     14. 9C, 4D         
6. 2B, 3B     15. 1D, 8D         
7. 4B, 5B     16. 3D, 6D         
8. 6B, 7B     17. 2D, 7D         
9. 8B, 9B     18. 5D, 9D         

round 2
1. 1A, 5A
2. 2A, 6A
3. 3A, 7A
4. 4A, 8A
5. 2B, 9A
6. 1B, 7B
7. 3B, 9B
8. 4B, 6B
9. 5B, 8B


We will have a similar schedule based on the actual number of teams but hopefully you get the idea. Team captains, please refer to what I need from you above and ensure you get me the requested information.[/code]

Here is my only question..... How will the matchups be decided for Doubles and Quads?

For instance our #1 Doubles Team will only be playing one Doubles Match but there are 8 other #1 Doubles Teams from different Cities/Areas. How will it be decided which of those other 8 Double Teams they would play?

Yeah that make sense. Making sure that our 6 matches (4 dubs and 2 quads) are against teams from 6 different cities/areas would be good. I didn't want to see like our team get matched up against like the Des Moines #1 team for most or all of our matches or something like that.

Totally random question that I am sure has been answered somewhere in Jay's blathering, but I figured this is faster since I type so well.

I lived in waterloo for a couple years, can I play for their team? Not saying I am, just curious since tye and I were debating this the other day.

Jay you could setup a spreadsheet where you just input everyone's scores and the formula can compare everyones hole score vs every other team in your seed. I've created a similar formula.

The neat thing there is that on hole 1 your score of 3 is compared instantly to the hole score of every other team in your seed. You could earn up to 8pts per hole, but there would be a lot of ties, so 3-5pts would be typical.

Hopefully we bring it home this year, so I can create that spreadsheet.

I love the spreadsheet idea, because you just enter the hole scores and the computer runs virtual match play in the background and also sums the score for you. Every team plays Every team - full coverage.
