Golf Tournament Groupings


I've had numerous requests for information on how to arrange foursomes in small and large tournaments. In most cases, what has been requested is a structure that groups players in a social event that ensures no one player plays with the same people more than once.

Although this is not always possible (depends on the number of players and the number of rounds to be played), the number of same playing partners can be minimized.

Below are a few samples of such groupings. Feel free to use them. If you require a structure for a different number of players or a different number of rounds, I'd gladly do the mathematics and arrange the draw for you. The fee is only $9.99 .

Email me with your request and I'll send you a secure link to pay followed by the draw for your tournament.

Sixteen Players

Let’s say you have a small tournament consisting of 16 players and you want to arrange
four rounds such that no one player plays with another player more than once.
Each column represents a round of golf. The number in the column represents the golfer’s
foursome. All golfers with the same number are in the same foursome.

The cost of purchasing my golf tips, $12.99, is less than the cost of:

a sleeve of golf balls, a golf hat, 5% of a new driver, a golf lesson.

You can purchase and download the tips immediately! They'll add to your existing equipment used for golf.

It's the best golf instruction you can get for your money. What you can learn about your golf game here is not available at any of the top golf schools.

Try out my new Driver Distance Calculator. Change temperature, clubhead speed, loft, energy and see how far the ball goes.

Get a copy of my latest study. A statistical analysis of over 1600 scores of golfers handicaps 0 - 36.

Graphs and charts display the data.

The scores were used to simulate over 140 000 matches.
A statistical analysis of those matches ensued.

Do the holes on your course have a fair handicap difficulty ranking? Are there some holes you rarely win? Find out how to calculate the actual difficulty of your holes. Check out the
Hole Difficulty Ranking Calculator.

This site provides free golf tips and instruction that beats buying a new golf ball, club, or swing. You will lower your score with statistics that golf schools don't teach, yet pga tour players practice. Many of the mental lessons provided here are based on the latest golf science, using the principles of physics and math to lower a golfer's score. You can even get a copy of my golf ball review that analyzes the longest balls.

   Imagine being able to lower your score without any formal golf instruction or physical practice. No hitting golf balls, no practice putting green, no golf lessons. Using the principles of ProbableGolf, you can do just that. All you need to do is improve in a different aspect of the game of which most are not even aware.  Not to say that you can achieve your potential by focusing only on what is presented throughout this site. Of course you need to improve your swing and short game skills. But, with what is offered here, you can make significant improvements to your game. More detailed instruction is available through the Order Services link.
