Scoring Player Forfeits and Determining Ball Spot
First, we have four floating subs that any team can use! The team that uses the sub is responsible for paying their $10 match fee. Please use our floating subs. We shouldn’t have any player forfeits this season! The floating subs are:
Margarita Makeeva – Starting handicap is an 8
Chris Slidell – Starting handicap is a 7
Mike Sambstrum – Starting handicap is a 7.5
Kelvin Yow – Starting handicap is 7.5
Now, how do we score a player forfeit. Any team with only 3 or 4 players available for the match will receive zero points for the missing player/s forfeited games.
- On the score sheet, a player named “FORFEIT” that has a zero average will be scored in the first spot (Home #1 or Visitor #6). In the event of two missing players, a second player named “FORFEIT” that has a zero average will be scored in the second spot. (Home #2 or Visitor #7).
- The opponent team’s lowest player average is not used in calculating the team handicap points.
- The opponents that are scheduled to play “FORFEIT” will receive their average as the score for that game.
- I attached a sample scoresheet for captains to review. See “Forfeit Player Exhibit” Click here to download the sample scoresheet.
