Determining win/loss of hole when using different pars/stroke indexes
To determine the outcome of each hole (win/loss/half) when using different sets of tees and stroke indexes, it is important to note that each competitor’s score is made relative to the par and stroke index on the card from the hole they are playing.
For example, the third hole is stroke index 1 and a par four from the Red tees. Morag (strokes received = 3) takes four shots to complete the hole from the Red tee, which is a nett score of birdie as she receives a stroke here. The third hole is stroke index 15 and a par five from the Yellow tees. John (strokes received = 7) takes five shots to complete the hole from the Yellow tee, which is a nett par as he does not receive a stroke here. Therefore, Morag wins the hole with a nett birdie.
