The Ryder Cup was a team-based mini-golf tournament that served as the third tournament of the second season of the MRT Golf Association. It took place between November 17th and November 18th. Team World won 8.5-4.5 after 0x10 bailed and forfeited in Match 10.
Players were separated into two teams: North America and The Rest of the World (often shortened to simply 'World').
There were be 13 matches. Winning a match gave you a point for your team. At the end of the two days, the team with the most amount of points wins the Ryder Cup.
Players who win a match get 5 points per win, and 3 points per tie, and 0 points per loss.
The two teams, North America and World, have the following 16 members split up into 8 players per team.
The teams then played in matches, either 2v2 or 1v1. Matches were organized between team captains and players before the tournament. Each win got each team 1 point. At the end of the tournament, the team with the most points won. FishEye110 was supposed to play but after missing both matches and having godzilltrain sub for both, the switch was made permanent.
Each team will play matches against each other. These matches will be played in different formats including Fourball, regular Stroke Play, and alternate shot.
Fourball is a format in which 2 players per team play against each other in a 2v2 match. All 4 player plays the hole, and each team takes the best score from that hole. For example, Player 1 on Europe hits 3, player 2 on Europe hits 5, player 3 on NA hits 4, and player 4 on NA hits 4, Europe takes the better score of 3 while America takes a score of 4. Thus, on the scorecard, the 'player' America would score a 4.
Standard Match Play
Standard match play is a 1v1 match where the two players play a hole. The better score (winning the hole) goes 1 UP. If already 1 UP, the player goes 2 UP. If 2 UP, the player goes to 3 UP and so on. However, if your opponent is 1 UP and you win the hole, you go back to "AS" which stands for All Square. If you are 1 UP and you lose the hole, you go to All Square. If you score the same amount of strokes on a hole, the score remains the same. The game ends when a player is so far UP that the opponent cannot possibly come back, even to tie. Here is an example, as the format is complicated for those who are not familiar.
|AS||1 UP||2 UP||2 UP||2 UP||3 UP||2 UP||1 UP||AS||1 UP|
Alternate shot is a simple format. In alternate shot, Player 1 tees off, player 2 takes the next shot, player 1 plays the one after that, and so on. The team score is how many total throws (not throws per person) there are before the hole is completed.
