    Match play or strokeplay ?

    Almost a follow on from the knockout topic but what's your choice ??

    Regardless or whether it's a competition or not, what do you prefer ??

    It's nothing to do with getting or giving strokes in match play but I've always preferred to play against the course.

    Re: Match play or strokeplay ?

    I've never played match play. Only been a club member a year tbf, but I didn't enter any in my first year. I might give it a go, but on the flipside of what a lot of the low hcappers moan about, I would probably feel quite sheepish if I beat someone who was clearly a much better golfer but giving me 17-odd shots. I think I'm always going to prefer medals/Stablefords as it's more about your own game on the day.

    I love the cut and thrust of Matchplay but have to say that Strokeplay (Medal rather than S'ford) is the ultimate challenge.

    an 8 in a Match is no biggie (have even halved holes with such a score!!) but in a Medal format....very difficult to play close to handicap once I toss off a treble bogey.

    I like both. Maybe tend towards matchplay if its scratch but would pick strokeplay if handicaps are involved.

    Re: Match play or strokeplay ?

    I played 3 stroke play events last year, and around 40 club matches in various guises from vets league to men's friendlies....think that answers the question for me.
    some metal woods,
    any old irons,
    Pick up balls....
