world cup question??

Hi ya everybody...one question....how do they match up players and teams during the last day stroke play competition....do they give an advantage to who ever is leading to play whoever is on the bottom....or do they make the top two play against each other....if they do it this way, I think it is rather unfair for the 3rd and 4th place people as they are trailing some team that is already ahead of them that will be assured of getting points

how does this work....just curious.....anyway...have a great day...see ya

huh?

The World Cup isn't match play, it's based on cumulative stroke play scoring for all 3 days. The first day is better ball, the second day is alternate shot and the third day is individual stroke play. I think the pairings are done randomly for day one, the based on score for days two and three. So, on the last day, the two top teams will be in the final pairing (just like any other tournament).

Just to illustrate, let's say Sweden shoots 65 in better ball, 68 in alternate shot, and on Sunday Annika shoots 68 and Lotta shoots 67. Sweden's cumulative score is 65-68-68-67 (268). If the US shoots 64 in better ball, 69 in alternate shot, and a 68-68 in individual scores by Natalie and Paula, the U.S. would score 64-69-68-68 (269) and would lose to Sweden by one stroke.

I have no idea what you are asking with regards to pairings being unfair to the 3rd and 4th place team.
