The ones I have done have been both, stroke and match play, as well as
a scoring system in some cases. Never had a tie. Playing more isn't an
option in some cases, like say a resort like Dancing Rabbit, so you
have to go to some sort of scorecard playoff or have some other
criteria like most birdies or fewest bogies.

Best would be to play more holes, but you can only do that at a CC or
some place where they will let you go out to play the extra holes.

No problem. Just messing with you. It was at the course where Bobby
Knight forgot his car keys and we had to wait for 30 minutes on the
10th tee because we played the front 9 "too fast".

This course:

I'll always remember that tournament. Ken Pitts and I demolished
David Hayes and Steve Stemmer in the alternate shot round. They were
weeping by the end.

Do you remember that round, Ken?

That's actually Thor's (Dave Collard) in Columbus. I would love to
take credit for it but I can't.
