IT’S RYDER CUP WEEK, an event that is truly unique in the golfing world thanks to the incredible atmosphere you feel from the crowd. In large part, it comes from the fact that is one of the few moments when fans root for THEIR team in this epic battle between the best 12 golfers of the USA and the 12 best golfers from Europe. It’s well known that the first tee at the Ryders Cup is one of the best experiences in the world for golf fans and players.
Another interesting angle comes from the fact that pro golfers who are used to play individually, are now part of a team which adds an exciting layer to the event. Taking a leaf out of the cup’s book, in today’s article, I’ll walk you through how to play a Ryder Cup format in TheGrint.
1- After tapping the PLAY icon on your home screen, you’ll need to tap the “JOIN/CREATE a LEADERBOARD”, followed by “CREATE A LIVE LEADERBOARD”
2- Three options will appear for the type of competition. Tap the RYDER option.
3- SET UP SCREEN: Here, you’ll get to customize your competition with the name of your Cup, a password for the players who are joining, and team names. If you don’t choose team names, the app will automatically set them as “Blue” and “Red” team.
Once you’ve done this, you’ll be able to edit the scoring format between NET and GROSS, and also decide whether you want to allow players to edit their handicap. Finally, select the stroke format between USGA or the MODIFIED option.
4- After setting these, tap on CREATE and you’ll be taken to a screen to finish the process. Here, you’ll choose the number of sessions the Cup will have, the course (or courses) you’ll be playing at, and finally the match play format for each session.
Formats are either 2-man teams or individual. For 2 man formats include fourball (also known as Best Ball), foursome a(also known as Alternate), and Scramble (we added this option for fun). For individual matches competition is decided with regular best ball format.
That’s it! Your very own Ryder Cup is ready to go! Player’s will be able to join using the password and each will choose the team they’ll be representing.
Having that said, enjoy your golf!
