Scoring Example: 

Play off low handicap to determine strokes for each hole. If Player A has a handicap of 17 and Player B has a handicap of 27, player B receives 1 stroke on the 10 hardest holes. (no max score).

Winner determined by total holes won.

If matched is tied after 18 holes, play continues until a hole is won.  Ideally, play would continue with hole 1.  However, the course may be full.  If both players agree, they may play any hole(s) agreed upon.  Ideally, the match should be determined the same day.
