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.

Matches

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

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.

Player 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Player 1 3 2 2 2 18 2 2 2 2
AS 1 UP 2 UP 2 UP 2 UP 3 UP 2 UP 1 UP AS 1 UP
Player 2 1 1 2 2 2 3 3 3 1

Alternate Shot

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.
