    Match play strategies... post yours.

    I love matchplay and strategy is very important as compared to standard medal play. Lets here your strategies, here are some of mine:

    - On the first tee, after shaking hands, I always try and stand near my opponent. 95% of the time I'm taller, and any intimidation is good intimidation.

    - I tend to wear tighter fitting clothing to appear more together, fit, and strong. I try to stay clean shaved and composed, as if I'm in control.

    - If possible, I take a 3-wood or a long iron off the first tee after my opponent has hit driver. This tells them, "I hit the ball too damn far to hit driver, I'll leave that to you." May not be true, but thats the attitude.

    - I give up my honors whenever possible. This establishes a feel that I'm in the control of the match, and they'll hit when I want them to.

    - I always discretely leave a towel over my irons on a par 3 just in case my opponent is curious as to what club I hit or am going to.

    - I concede putts by hitting the ball to them, not declaring, "That's good." I don't know why, but this just lets the guy know I'm not overly impressed with his shot/chip/putt.


    Now lets hear yours...
    "You got a choice. You can stop, or you can start."
    "Start?
    "Walkin"
    "Where?"
    "Right back to where you always been... and then stand there... Still... real still... And remember... "

    I ask myself "what would BPC do in this situation" then do the opposite.

    I put the ball in the hole with fewer strokes. With that strategy, I win every time.

    I just play the game like a gentleman should & not resort to cheap trickery. If I play the better golf, I win & vice-versa.

    People trying to intimidate & play tricks on their opponent are disgraceful & should be barred from the game.

    You mean you don't wear tight shirts, stand right next to your opponent, slap his balls away from the hole and generally act like an insufferable prick?

    Pretty much.. though when I do wear my tightest shorts, I "discretely" place a towel over my genitalia just in case my opponent starts to get curious.

    I kick the guy square in the nuts during his practice swing every time. If it's a female, I kick her in the baby-maker.

    I definitely don't pull any stupid gamesmanship crap. My opponents are people I'll likely play with in the future and I don't want to come off like a d1ck.
    Maybe I'll play for the middle of the green if he hits OB.

    lmao - too funny!

    on the otherhand i have played many matchplay matches as that is what the junior league matches are. i just talk to them like they were my friends. some people dont like talking but feel they have to when i talk to them - talking takes my mind off what i'm doing aswell and i play better that way.

    i played against one little knobby in the semi-finals - he was like "yeah i play off 18 but i shot par last time i was here", "i'm the net junior champion at my course, i shot 2 over, which is 16 under my handicap", then his dad turned up and caddied for him (which is against the rules), because my team had already lost and the outcome of my game didn't matter - this is what his dad said loud and clear. i did win 3&2 but we lost 1.5/4.5.

    he stood beside me before every shot to see what shot i had to hit. problem was he was smaller than me and my shirt was tighter than his - boy was he in for it...

    he reminds me off you Beth.

    I try to step on my opponents putting line on accident. On every hole.

    I stand so that the head of my shadow is directly over the hole and then sway back and forth while humming softy. While my opponent putts.

    I make my opponent putt out from 2 inches away and right as he's about to make contact with the ball I scream "MISS IT!!!!". If he complains I explain that he's being a baby and that there's no way he could have missed that putt.

    I wait for him to be further out and while he stands there waiting to hit I fire one right at him, hitting him in the small of the back, and then yell "shank!!!!"

    On our way down the fairway I talk to him about swinging couples and ask if he and his wife/girlfriend are into it. If he says yes I tell him I'm not married but I'd like to bang his wife.

    If my opponent hits a good shot and I can tell he's proud of it I'll get right up in his face and say things like" OH, YOU THINK YOU"RE THE SH-T NOW?!?!?".

    Pretty much I'm a complete a-hole the entire time.

    Just to win a gift certificate from the proshop. Like a fu-king idiot.

    sry bdgiant, thats wrong.... i played a match with a friend of mine the other day, he shot 81 while i shot a 76, and he won. The holes he lost didnt matter if he lost by 1 or by 10, its one point in the match, and he played well on the holes he needed to, and halved the ones he needed to, and won 2&1.

    Ive never played any "actual" matchplay other then just with friends, so im not guna use tactics against friends i play with all the time. But i am looking for a match play event to get into. If anyone hears of a match play event in the lower mainland of BC, let me know.
    I feel sorry for Skeet boy's cat...

    After they hit it out of the sandtrap and are raking it, I take a dump on their golf ball and tell them that he's being a ***** when he marks the ball and cleans off my feces.

    BPC, if you are serious, you need some therapy.... I have only played this format for fun with my friends. I am usually a much higher cap so I just play within my limits and let them try to play birdie-par to match my par-bogey play on the stroke holes. I do play against my dad all the time and it always ends up like match play on the back. There are 2 back to back 400yd. par 4's that I usually take the lead for good on though.

    I used to play matchplay every weekend when I was at University, four matches on Saturday and Sunday, fourball or foursomes followed by singles. At lunch the members used to get us students drunk on red wine and port so the afternoon singles were a bit trickey, though the alcohol was useful fortification against the freezing winds in January and February.

    Always found the best tactic was to lose 7&6 and get back to the bar as soon as possible.

    You know I tend to use that strategy too. The wet ones are harder to clean so I try to hold it for when I have drank a lot of water. Sometimes I will pee and take a dump on the ball and then mix it in sand.

    Ooohhhhhh, that sounds slightly interesting. But what if they're a fast raker and you don't have time for both?!?!?!?!

    Well you really have multiple options in this situation. Sometimes I just throw rocks at him and hope he temporarily loses vision or gets knocked unconcious. A rock throw could also get him very angry and he has a rake in his hand so be careful. You must throw the rock hard or else he will be able to regain strength quickly and fight you.
    Another option you have is to throw branches, sticks, nikes, or leaves into the bunker so that he has to clean it up. The danger of this is it may only stall him for a few moments and unless you are a quick shitter you may not be able to successfully dump on the ball. If you rush you may miss and this strategy is possibly the tuffest.
    Yet another option you have is to try to mess up the sand. Throwing a Carmelo Anthony, stepping in the sand, throwing his bag into the sand, or seriously messing the sand will make him have to rake more. This strategy is difficult because throwing large objects into a bunker may look suspicious to bystanders.
    There are many more ways, but these were my favorites that I use most.

    haha BPC, some of those are great. I wish I knew them for this past season. The kids I play against in highschool just aren't as knowledgable as I am when it comes to the rules of golf. whenever I'm away and they step up to their balls I just let them go ahead and swing. If its a terrible shot I won't say anything but I make them hit another one if its decent at all. I've only done this twice but both times the guys completely duffed their second shots. Another time a kid sunk a 15 footer for par but the flagstick was still in and I called him on it. You'd be surprised how many guys ground the club in bunkers too. Yeah I know, I'm an a$$hole when I play competitively but my opponents should know the rules better.

    Shower your opponent with kindness, as with any person(s) I'm playing with. It's a freakin' game.

    "Well done."

    "Nice."

    Simple, little comments such as that.

    One can tell pretty quickly if they're an intensive jerkoff and taking the match way too seriously (depending). If it gets to an uncomfortable status and...

    1) his girlfriend is caddying/following him around...

    2) his mother and father are following around

    Start, polite, harmless chit-chat with the girlfriend and/or mother (depending on your age).

    If he's beating you and getting cocky? Flirt openly with the girlfriend and/or mother (depending on your age).

    IMHO...

    Unsufferable prick? 95% of the time I'm a friendly guy on the golf course, but when I actually get to play match play competitively, whats wrong with taking it a little bit seriously and strategizing?

    Also, don't take that tight shirt comment too seriously. I don't walk around looking like Fabio. By tight, I mean fitting, not the tolken golf shirt that is two sizes too big. We'll see how much you can milk that out.

    Honestly Lloyd, you've been trolling this forum for about a year now. We've never learned anything about you, your golf game, or anything related. I've had the arising suspicion you're just a lonely soul whos a little nifty with the keyboard. Perhaps you have nothing to bring to the table.

    Ahh why beat around the bush? I think you're just a screw up, and I suspect I'm not the only one who thinks this. What grown responsible man would spend his days ridiculing people on the internet? I'm more of a man at 17 than you will ever be. I don't hide behind a mysterious identity in the anonymity of the internet. I have faults, and I'll admit them. You haven't gotten half that far. You're just one of those kids in high school who just never grew up and made it. I'm not pulling the teen card here, but do you realize how pathetic it really is? Don't take it out on me.

    I know you'll have some quick smart remark to come back with, and you'll think you won again. However, the majority of the members on this forum think you're a bleeding idiot. Please leave, we don't want you here.

    Why is it that whenever I type something, morning or night, Lloyd is ALWAYS on the computer to answer in less than 5 minutes? Jeez, get out of your house for once.

    I can't believe no one has mentioned how you should take one or both tee box markers, and either beat your opponent with its blunt side or stab him in the gut with the stake end...Jeebus...do any of you play match play at all?

    I think it would be more debilitating to stab your opponent through the eye. Personally, I'd like to see the optic nerve swinging around.

    Then you could take your driver and tee up the eye ball. How far do you think that would travel?

    I always like to light up a big fat Cuban cigar prior to my opponent teeing off. Most people hate the smell of a cigar and it makes a great distraction in most cases. If they really hate smoke, I'm already in his head before he tees off.

    Bengunk, are you not leaving?

    Tight fitting clothes? This is the dumbest post I have ever read. People who worry that much about their opponent are missing the point.

    What happens if you lose? You get closed out on the 12th hole and have to hump it all the way back to the clubhouse wearing tight ass clothes and looking like some foursome's pivot man?

    I really like to mention to my opponent on the first tee that 'In case you know, I've got the Woodie System goin' on in my pants so don't get too close'. This really fazes them. also when they bend down to pick up their ball I like to mention about how great they look and I ask if they work out. You can't do this if you're not straight off the tee however, as they will not help you look for the ball in the woods.

    Match play rules

    You guys know more about match play than me,but a thought you can't give up honors(as BPC does) and also if you know someone is hitting out of turn should't you say something before they hit(les more)?

    Play skins. It's close to match play and fixes the two players tied problem of 3 way match play. You don't even have to bet, skins can be treated like points.

    "split skins match"

    Quote Originally Posted by ironman

    when three of us are scoring, we play "split skins match"
    winner get a point.
    top two low scores split, halves.
    three way tie carrys, like skins.
    gross strokes break match ties. if there's still a tie, then the gross score of the last hole and so on breaks that tie.

    my strategy for winning any match (we assigned handicap holes based on Index or estimated Index) is simple, but hard to do: get on fairway, then stay on fairway, then get down in three...shoot for steadly Bogies and let the others blow up first.

    8- and/or 7-irons, a wedge on, two putts...at least that's the plan.. aint glamorous, but gets results. but as soon as i'm ahead i'll break out a long wood then drill a 6- or 5- iron...the real fun in golf, but not as controlled.
    golf's a relaxing betting game.

    Actually, my body fat is currently a hair under 10%, I also have a beard, and my clothing fits properly.
    I just dont see the point in looking like a tool to try and intimidate someone.

    I usually show up wearing the nike swoosh from head to toe. Then I will remark about how upset I am that my dad passed away and didn't see my last 2 major wins. Then I'll pull my "Frankie" headcover off my driver and remark how I wish Steve wasn't sick so he could caddie for me today. That usually quickly instills some fear in my opponent.
    Be glad we aren't getting all of the government we're paying for.

    i always like to talk shi.t about their inferior equipment and if they have hybrids on every box i say: " Ma'am you know you can hit from the front tees right? you dont have to hit from back here with the men." this especially works well if they are actually male... ironically most hybrid carriers are always female... ugly as hell but still female

    WOW, I had forgotten just how ridiculous this thread was. As if clean shaven is going to make a fuking bit of difference. I think growing a big arse beard and not showering for 2 weeks would work far better. Can you imagine how bummed you would feel losing to some big bearded smelly bastard.

    There is only ONE really effective "strategery" for match play.

    two words... spicey beans... for dinner...

    and then for good measure, some more for breakfast before you head to the course.

    After reading this and other BPC threads I was amazed to see his age listed as 19, or about 17 when he started these. I always imagined him as a big dumb, thirty something lives at home with his parents kind of guy. The Camillo thread was especially disturbing for a teenager.

    LC3 made a guest appearance just the other day to try to flame Spank. It was on the I could kick Tiger's ass thread.

    I'd like to see LC3 on here more often too. I can take as good as I give so I would welcome anybody who could liven things up a bit and get a good flame war going. But like most posters here, the guy I really miss is BPC. He is without doubt the author of two of the best threads this forum has seen. The only thread that had the potential to rival those two was closed down and the starter was booted, and alas we may never know about golf in Vietnam. HB's thread about how to spot a hacker gets an honourable mention too.

    Yeah I saw that. LC3 was hilarious but he was a bit like you (and Omen) in that he often offended people but usually did it on purpose just to get a bite.

    I don't think he would have let your constant hybrid/gay bashing go unpunished.

    He was also a bit like Omen in that he was an authority on all things golf but he managed to do it with wit and humour.

    He offended some (especially BPC) but in general he was highly entertaining.

    It's an interesting theory, but he was dead serious all the time. He was actually a moderator for awhile. Look back to around November/December of 2006 and you'll see some of the funniest threads ever created. We had 3 high schoolers as mods.

    I'm around the same age as last 3 and am definitely too old to be on forums like this trying to flame people, but I just refuse to grow up when it comes to this stuff.

    I looove Match play. My key strategy is shut the hell up and play golf. For some reason not talking can be a great intimidator. I also lay up on most par fives aswell no matter how close I am . Sounds lame but how often do you get an eagle on par fives through out the course of a year. Plus your opponent sees this and either gets greedy or snaps one off trying to reach in two. In my opinion your putter and wedge shots are most important in match play and whatever other game you play on the course.

    Had my First match of the trny today. (Won 3 &2, had to give him 10 shots)

    I found myself standing right beside him one the first tee, and started laughing and took a couple steps away. I Didn't shave right before I went out either so no wonder I lost the first hole....You bastards psyched me out!

    When standing close to your opponent in a tight-a$$ shirt, I find it's also a good strategy to blow some whey protein breaf up in dey face.

    Damn I wish I'd read this thread a week ago. I got my ass kicked 4/3 at the weekend but I'm sure if I could have applied some of BPC strategies it would have made a decisive difference.

    Hmm ... let's see.

    Tight shirt, er it's winter here so I would have frozen my nuts off without a vest.

    Stand close to my opponent, trouble is he was taller than me, he might have intimidated me?

    Clean shaven - I never shave at the weekend?

    3 wood off the tee? I already did that and snap hooked one OB.

    Give up what few honours I had? No way!

    I should have discreetly put a towel over my irons on the par 3's. I don't know how much that would have helped though as he had the honour on all the par 3's.

    I never conceded any putts. This guy was draining them all!

    On second thoughts BPC is full of sh*t! His strategies wouldn't have helped at all!
    I chose the road less traveled.

    Now where the f#ck am I?

    I wait for him to be further out and while he stands there waiting to hit I fire one right at him, hitting him in the small of the back, and then yell "shank!!!!"

    On our way down the fairway I talk to him about swinging couples and ask if he and his wife/girlfriend are into it. If he says yes I tell him I'm not married but I'd like to bang his wife.

    If my opponent hits a good shot and I can tell he's proud of it I'll get right up in his face and say things like" OH, YOU THINK YOU"RE THE SH-T NOW?!?!?".

    Pretty much I'm a complete a-hole the entire time.

    Just to win a gift certificate from the proshop. Like a fu-king idiot.
    Thats right a new driver cuz id snap it on yer upper and bottom lip Learn some etiquette haker.

    Perhaps the funniest thing about this while thread is the irony of BPC's opening post, which appears to be lost on BPC. In employing such ludicrous 'strategies', which by his own admission are not the way he normally plays golf, he is actually reducing his chances of playing his own game before he even gets off the first tee. In all his attempts to unsettle his opponent, the only one he really unsettles is himself.

    But I still love the way he thinks. A unique individual.

    I don't have anything to add here. I just wanted to keep this thread at the top of the list for a little while longer as it is some of the best golf literature ever. Do you guys realize that this will someday be sitting next to Hogan's Five Lessons in Barnes and Noble and libraries worldwide someday?

    You mean it's not already?

    The key difference between the two is Hogans Five Lessons was a classic about the technical aspects of the golf the swing whereas BPC's is a classic about match play strategies.
    I chose the road less traveled.

    Now where the f#ck am I?

    Has BPC ever started any threads about the technical side of golf?

    He's obviously well versed in matchplay strategies, so it would stand to reason he wold have a similarly radical and unqiue take on the golf swing.

    Anyone know of any threads where he gives his thoughts on the golf swing?

    P.S. This is obviously one of the most popular threads ever, why hasn't it been made a sticky so we don't have to keep finding it when we want to revisit it?

    I thought I'd bring this back in case anybody out there has made the matchplay flight of their club championship and needed some inspiration. Reading the opening post should provide all the inspiration you require.

    I can't believe someone would go through all that just for one match play game.

    Your golf would have to be pretty shitty in order to resort to all that BS.

    Just bombed all my tee shots , make sure I hit the green on all par 3s. Give up no putts until the back 9. And lay up on all par 5s on the front 9. And depending on the match, only use driver if necessary.

    Yeah, like all that will make a difference against a clean shaven, tight shirted, close standing opponent.

    i thought this thread was retired into the GRHOF? BPC's match play strategies are widely considered to be some of the best GR material ever produced.

    What good is it to take the time to ban someones username, when they can create a new one, in less time than it takes me to ban it.

    STFU and get over it.

    Hmm been there done that..........Tight shirt opponent lol. Bombed tee shots with a fade that blow yards past your opponent, with a little touch around the greens . Thatll make that tight shirt fit just a little tighter, and grow some stubble on the chinny before the end

    In that case I'll retract the question about the IP ban. But the numb nuts comment still stands on general character grounds.

    The website designer and the one who initially put up the site is the only one that can do IP bans. On the other site you are familiar with, that person is westptx. GA can't do **** but ban the username and like he said, it is only a matter of time before they put up a new username.

In my opinion your putter and wedge shots are most important in match play and whatever other game you play on the course.
    I wish this was your key strategy on golf forums.

    I can't believe this thread hasn't made 100 posts yet. I decided to bump it to get it a bit closer. This is without doubt one of the top 5 all time GR threads, and deserves 100 posts.

    Looking back on the early posts, BPC and LC3 had a bit of a LarryRSF/AlanGbaker thing going on there. BPC even accused LC3 of having no life and sitting at home waiting to respond to his posts immediately. BPC wasn't quite as eloquent or vitriolic with the adhommoninne personalt attacks as Larry, but amuaing none the less.

    I'll leave the honour of the 100th post to someone more deserving. BPC, if you're out there this is the perfect chance to return triumphantly to GR on a wave of emotion and fanfare. Your exile has been too long, we want you back.

    I like to set up an Hibachi right on the golf cart. The smell of my family recipe steak and a sauce cooking right on the cart can really unnerve many players. Those that survive that won't get past the Pavlovian conditioning that follows. I offer them a little only after they've lost a hole.

    Typically, the fatter my opponent, the greater my chances of success.

    That should be 100.
