Introduction to Match Play

By February 20, 2013

Follow me on:

Our Match Play Primer is a good feature to revisit every year this time on the world golf schedule, with the WGC Accenture Match Play Championship teeing off.

The "Match Play 101" articles go over scoring in match play (what does "4-and-3" mean?); terminology (what is "dormie"?); explains rules differences between stroke and match play; and gets into some questions of strategy.
