Charlotte Putting League 2016-2017
October 25, 2016 @ 5:45 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:45pm on Tuesday, repeating until March 28, 2017
The biggest putting league in the world and the most fun you can have on a Tuesday night for $5 is BACK!
Putting League is back at Sugar Creek Brewing every Tuesday from now until the end of March. Signups are 5:45-6:15, $5 to play with an optional $1 ace pool entry.
Innova, Another Round Disc Golf and Better DiscGolfer return as our main sponsors.
Winners receive cash, they each get a growler of beer from Sugar Creek Brewing and a pair of Innova discs courtesy of the Innova Bounty – so long as you putt with Innova putters on the night you win. The top mixed (at least one woman) team will also win a 64oz growler
At 6:15pm, all registered players will be randomly paired using a spreadsheet.
If there’s an uneven number of players registered there will be a lone wolf, randomly assigned.
A putting lane consists of two opposing baskets 30′ apart. **Note that it’s inside the “circle” – jump putts are not allowed**
Two teams per lane (4 players), one player on each basket (two players on each side). First to throw will be decided on by disc flip, and will remain constant for the entire match.
Two putters are thrown.
2 in = 3
1 in = 1
First to 11 wins, must win by 2.
If a team wins on a round, both players on the throwing side must complete the round, (finish the side).
Freebie! Odd Team Bye:
If there is an uneven number of teams, one team will get a bye. With the exception of the first round, bye teams are automatically chosen based on being in the losing half of the bracket (only teams with losing records will be chosen). The bye team will get a freebie win.
Each turn consists of teams alternating throws from one basket to the other, where their partners will be. Team 1 throws, then Team 2 throws. Repeat. Then the Team members from the other side throw.
There will be 6 rounds to determine the top 2 teams.
Teams will be paired up based on the night’s performance using the Swiss System algorithm provided by Challonge.com, as the scoring system we use calculates based on wins, losses and difficulty of opponents.
There’ll be a last chance qualifier to determine the top four teams, who’ll enter in a seeded final four bracket. The winners from each of bracket will face off in the Championship Round.
The top two teams will face off in center court, using the same rules in the round – except the game ends at 21 instead of 11.
Everyone who put in the $1 ace pool money will have one throw in a setup determined by the second place team. If the ace pool isn’t hit, the money will carry over to next week. It’ll remain uncapped until the ace pool is eventually hit.
