Can I Run a Ryder Cup Style Golf Tournament?

With any 18Birdies account, you have the ability to set up a stroke play tournament, and then players within each four/five-some can set up a Match Play betting game between the group.

You would be able to accomplish the exact Ryder Cup-style by setting up your pairings so that each player in a specific match is in a group. Then from within that group, the players would initiate a Match Play betting game, pair the matches respectively, play the round and then reconcile the matches and results at the 19th hole after the round.


Player A
Player B
Player C
Player D

Once the round has started, Player A taps the Group icon on the right side of the GPS screen (above Solid Shot) and then scrolls to select 'Match Play'.

  1. Player A would be able to select Player C and Player D for a team match (disregard the 'team', this effectively makes the match individual)
  2. Player A would be able to start the second match and select Player A and Player B as the second team match (disregard the 'team', this effectively makes the match individual)

Although this is a workaround, this would get you close to a Ryder Cup-style tournament.

Alternatively, you would be able to set up a Points game through Side Games. The users would need to set the game up so that the winner of a hole would win a point and then the players would need to translate the points won into who effectively won the match.
