What are the rules for match play in golf

Answered By: Reginald Sanders Date: created: Oct 01 2022

In match play the game is played by holes. Except as otherwise provided in the Rules, a hole is won by the side that holes its ball in the fewer strokes. In a handicap match, the lower net score wins the hole. The state of the match is expressed by the terms: so many “holes up” or “all square,” and so many “to play.”
