After 36 holes have been completed on Friday at the Andalucía Costa Del Sol Match Play 9, the final 64 players will head into a weekend of nine-hole match play. Before the action kicks off, here is your cheat sheet to explain how things will unfold over the next two days.
-The top 64 players from Thursday and Friday’s stroke play will advance to the single-elimination match play weekend.
- Any ties for 64th place will be decided through a play-off at the end of the second round.
- Ahead of the matches on Saturday, players will be seeded based on their finishing position after 36 holes.
- Ties in the seeding process will be decided on the following:
(i) Lowest 2nd round
(ii) Lowest 9, 6, 3, 1 hole of the course in the 2nd round,
(iii) Card Match Play starting at the 1st hole of the course using the 2nd round score
-Ties at the end of nine: If a match is all-square after nine holes, the competitors will continue on into a sudden-death play-off, where the first player to win a hole advances to the next round.
