"Bottom-up" scoring may be useful in very specific instances, but the every tournament series that have crossed my inbox would be able to have the same result using the Top 25/Top 30 options I mentioned above.
I've never used the part of Match Play that is used to set up tournaments, hence the question…
Is it "Top 25" or "Top 30", or could the TD use, say "Top 37"? (The number of players at these events typically varies between, say, 22 and up to 35 on a given night, so we'd need to be able to specify the exact number of players.)
I can't control how your tournament director configures their tournaments. If you're unhappy you should maybe take it up with them directly?
Right. I'll pass this on to the TD. If there is a reasonable way to achieve the equivalent of "bottom-up" scoring, this becomes a non-issue
Thank you for your help!
