Remember this is MATCH PLAY, hole by hole, not stroke play.
You will use 80% of your handicap for the week you are playing your match as posted for that Tue night.
EXAMPLE 1 -- if player A is a 9 handicap, 80% of 9 is 7.2 rounded to 7. If player B is a 7, 80% of 7 is 5.6 rounded to 6. So player A will get 1 stroke per 9 on the hardest handicap holes.
EXAMPLE 2 -- if player A is a 12 handicap, 80% of 12 is 9.6 rounded to 10. If player B is a 4, 80% of 4 is 3.2 rounded to 3. So player A will get 7 strokes per 9 holes on the hardest handicap holes.
So just call your opponent to schedule the match, then call the pro shop to schedule your tee time (18 holes) and let them know you are playing your match for the TNMGL -- no additional green/cart fees to be paid.
FIRST ROUND, complete matches by July 2nd -- John Withers vs Bruce Swanson; Jack Williams vs Todd Cook; Rich Rountree vs Daniel Skibbe; Mike Alfonso vs Ken Hockey; Larry Lautner vs Mike Jeffs; Mike Verberkmoes vs TJ Clark; Guy Cole vs Joe Lloyd; Dennis Sternburgh vs Dave Koss; Mike Horton vs John Riley.

Leave your scorecard in the TNMGL slot and record the winner on the bracket.
Regular league rules apply to match play except one -- if a player hits a ball OUT OF BOUNDS you lose STROKE AND DISTANCE. You have the option to play a provisional ball from the same spot you hit your original ball, or take a 2 STROKE PENALTY and drop 2 club lengths inbounds using line of flight where the ball went out.
EXAMPLE 1 -- player A thinks he hits his drive out of bounds off the tee on # 13; he can either re-tee and declare a provisional (hitting 3) or take a drop, 2 club lengths inbounds using line of flight with a 2 stroke penalty, and he would be hitting his 4th shot.
EXAMPLE 2 -- player A hits his 2nd shot from the fairway on #18 far left out of bounds onto the driving range.You have the option to take a drop and declare a provisional from the same spot (stroke and distance), now hitting 4; or take a drop 2 club lengths inbounds using line of flight where the ball went out, hitting your 5th shot.
