Spring 2021 Kickoff

The Simgolf GSPro Spring 2021 2 Man Scramble will be a single elimination tournament with a pre tournament round to determine bracket seedings. All round will be gross stroke play. We do not have a way to enforce game settings, so this will be an on your honor tournament.

I am sure we will run into hiccups as we try this for the first time. Special rules will be in place in the event teams run into issues during tournament play and need to exit/resume. To reduce the number of issues, please make every effort to play against your opponents in a live online match.


All matches will be played as stroke play with no handicaps. For matches played live, please let @rmsanger know the winner of the match. For other matches, please submit a screenshot of the final scorecard. If you run into issues during gameplay and need to exit/resume, please capture the scorecard up to the last played hole. Start a new match and play the remaining holes. Send the screenshots of all scorecards and we will combine for a final score. To reduce risk of issues, it would be advised to capture a picture of the scorecard after each hole.

How to take a screenshot using Windows snipping tool.

In the event of a tie, the USGA Method (Last 9, 6, 3, 1) will be used to determine a winner. If the teams are still tied most birdies, most eagles or better, then fewest bogeys will be used to break the tie. In the unlikely event the teams are still tied, a coin flip will determine the winner.
