    Matchplay question

    Am sure this will be basic stuff, but Iím ashamed to say I donít know the correct answer.

    Iím off 24. Played today with a mate who is off 27. We normally play stableford but decided to play matchplay this time.

    I knew I needed to give him a shot on 3 holes, but wasnít sure which 3. Do I give him a shot on the 3 hardest holes (SI 1-3), or on the 3 holes he would normally get an extra shot on if we were playing stableford (SI 7-9)?

    May l be the 99th person to point out that you don't give him shots on the three hardest holes. You give him shots on holes SI 1 to 3. Which is not necessarily the same thing.
