This year’s event was a rousing success on multiple levels: the weather held up; the course played well; the competition was stiff; the fellowship was robust and the Nupes got the victory and the bragging rights! The final match score was 7 – 3.
Match play format means that two-man-teams compete and the team with the lowest score on a hole, wins the hole and teams “half” the hole when they tie. The two-man team with the most holes won out of 9, wins that individual match. The winning team secures one point that is added to their fraternal team’s total.
The fraternity that wins the most matches, wins the 1911 Cup. So, just like the Ryder Cup, a team can win a point for the overall team, lose a point for the overall team, or get a half point by being tied after 9 holes. In the case of a tie, the first tie breaker was the Fraternity with the most overall birdies, and the second tie breaker is a sudden death play-off hole.
Fortunately, there wasn’t a need for any tie breaker as the Klass Act took the trophy klassically!
