On each hole the best stableford score counts against opposing team’s score.
Eg. Team A scores 4 for 3 points and opposition scores 4 for 2 points then team A win
the hole. Even if a match is won 5 & 4 you still compete to the final hole, as opposition
can come back to lose only 2 down. This affects the bonus point, if Team A wins 3 up
and their partners lose their match 2 down, then the bonus point goes to Team A.
Putts may be given on the matchplay but players MUST putt out for individual stableford competition
