In the event of a tie..

Ken and Tony tied today within the handicap system. I had considered reverting to raw score to settle it but I decided that Tony's play today within the system shouldn't just be written off like that. Therefore, from now on, in the even of a tie within a head-to-head league match such as what happened today, each player will be awarded a point each. What does everyone else think of this rule? Do you guys think it is a fair way to remedy a tie? I'm open to other suggestions for future situations.

Or what about awarding the 3rd point to the overall raw score winner?

I don't really have any strong opinions one way or the other, but would it break the system to split it 1.5/1.5?

Maybe since they tied the round overall after handicap it should just be a 4 point system. Award front/back nine wins, and give a point each for tying overall. It should be a rare occurrence, and the most points either player could still get is three.

More specifically I feel that in any tying scenario each player still deserves a point while still trying to determine an overall winner. If by some extremely rare chance they manage to tie front, back, and overall score post-handicap, they are deserving of 3 points each. Have those two players shoo ... more

It works out to ties for both front and back nines, too.
