Match Play

Match play is a scoring system for golf in which a player, or team, earns a point for each hole in which they have bested their opponents; this is as opposed to stroke play, in which the total number of strokes is counted over one or more rounds of 18 holes. In professional golf, a small number of notable tournaments use the match play scoring system.

Famous quotes containing the words match and/or play:

    The phonographs of hades in the brain
    Are tunnels that re-wind themselves, and love
    A burnt match skating in a urinal—

    A great while ago the world begun,
    With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
    But that’s all one, our play is done,
    And we’ll strive to please you every day.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
