In an attempt to have scores provide a little more detail of the matches played, we will attempt on having a "box score".

When you report matches if possible please provide the "box score". The Box score is just the hole by hole scoring.

Reporting a score should now Look something like this:
(Note this is not an accurate Box Score of our game)

Rolly 7 vs Eric 4
(First line is the score, easy stuff, same old)

(Box Score:)
ERR---R-- EERRR--RE


Line 2 is the box score.
A dash(-) will always represent a hole that is pushed. This is universal for all.
The letters represent a hole won by a player. In this case R=Rolly and E is Eric. The first slot is the first hole played, not what hole you started on. If you start on hole 12, always start the box score the same way with the first hole played starting the box score.



Use logical letters to represent individuals.
For example, If claus played Holly, you would use the letter C to represent a hole claus has won and an H to represent a hole if Holly had won.
--> HHHH--CC- HHHHHHHHH = Claus 2 vs Holly 13 with 3 holes pushed.

There should only be a total of 18 letters or dashes combined. Put a space between holes 9 and 10 please.

Box scores will be posted on the schedule/results portion of the site like this:

Rolly 7 vs Eric 4 ERR---R-- EERRR--RE

Thanks for your voluntary compliance.

With a score attached to it, if reported properly you could tell who G would be by using logic.

To properly report this score:

Person G 11 vs Holly 0
GGG----GG G---GGGGG


Having the score present leads us to who G might be.

Why don't you use "H" for the home player and "V" for the visitor.

LOL, yeah, there will be times like when C-kyle plays claus, then you resort to letter that starts with your last name for one person.


So for Claus you might use an R, and Cyle still use the C.

Because that creates an extra step to read the box score. Person needs to check who is home and away, then associate that with a person. Using letters that directly relate to a person there is no step to interperate who the H and who the V represents.

This is why we dont use H and V when reporting Box scores.

The OMPL schudule follows the North American model of reporting scores and schedules where the VISITOR is always first and the HOME team is always 2nd. This is the norm in all media, TSN,ESPN, newpapers etc.

Player A @ Player B
Player A vs Player B

In both cases above Player A is away in north american style.

In Europe, (you'll notice in the Euro 2012 event) Home team is always listed first. (At least for soccer this is how it is, I dont know about the other dumb sports they play like handball and field hockey)

Player A vs Player B

Player A is home.

We do the north american style.

And what if we don't submit the match with a boxscore?

If it's not necessary in the standings and just for stats then I don't see the point.

Was this box score "rule" in effect from the start of the OMPL season?

From the rules:

Where the winning player fails to provide the score in a timely manner, the tournament director may, at their discretion, penalize the home player by denying them one or more points, but will not otherwise alter who won the match.


As I said yesterday in the PM you sent me:

A box score provides more detail of a match then just a scoreline. Thats what the point is.

Its not a "rule" its a procedure really. No it was not in effect,
The rule of properly reporting matches was in the rules however. As was who is responsible to do so etc. This is the only mod to that rule. Everything else in OMPL stays the same. So really there is not any changes to any rule, just a slight mod to the procedure of a rule. So the only change is that now with an PM that tells me the score you must add an extra 18 characters with a space in the middle. Not such a bid deal now is it?
There really is not an easier score card out there in DG. If you get the letters wrong, your not going to be penalised 2 strokes. If you add the letters up wrong your not going to be penalsied. If you dont put a space between the first 9 and the last 9, you wont be penalised.



If you guys are wondering why your match does not count yet is beause it was your May match and you played it in June. Play your June match in June and then your may match counts.(see the rules)

I did provide you the end score. You're now requesting a boxscore in addition which is not in the rules. You've just added it in recently which is what I have an issue with.

So you'll penalize us for not providing more "detail" on the match?

Yet you say that the entry of boxscores is voluntary;
