How can I see exactly how tie breaks are done?

Tournament Manager has several tiebreak options...

  1. USGA - Recommended by United States Golf Association.
    Ties broken by who wins last 9 holes, last 6 holes, last 3 holes and finally if still tied who wins last hole (18th hole).  For details view USGA Recommendation for Settling Ties Live Example.
  2. By Handicap holes. Who won first handicap hole, who won second handicap hole, etc.
  3. Sequential hole 18 to 1...Who won 18th hole..if still tied, who won 17th hole, etc...
  4. Sequential hole 1 to 18...Who won 1st hole..if still tied, who won 2nd hole, etc...
    To use any of the above tie-break options, simply sort the report by the tiebreak option you wish.
  5. A quick way to "see" how how any of the above tie breaks are done...
  • Select Reports menu.
  • On Report Finder select Custom - Tournament Individual Reports.
  • Display Report (View Net/Gross Tiebreaks) THEN  select how to sort report. This will show each tie break and how the ties are broken.
  • Create your own tiebreak. You can sort and sub-sort standings by any items for tie-breaking purposes. For example, you could sort a standings report by total net, and sub-sort by handicap. Any golfers tied on net score, would be further sub-sorted by handicap. Thus a golfer's handicap would decide how the tie is broken. You can sort a report\view on up to 3 different items.
  • Tie break by fractional nets, fractional quotas, or fractional handicaps. Handicaps, nets, and quotas can be displayed to two decimal places for tie breaking purposes. To specify that you wish handicaps and nets calculated to 2 decimal places:

    Click the Tournament Parameters tab, to view Tournament Parameters.
    Click the Advanced Options tab. Check the option Display handicaps and quota to 2 decimal places

    Any report or view will display these values to 2 decimal places.
