To create an eclectic score over several tournaments, select Competitions/Multiple tournaments, Golf Weeks/Print…/Yearly Eclectic:
You can create an annual eclectic only for SINGLE tournaments.
Eclectic is usually evaluated over 18 holes; if you only want to evaluate 9 hole competitions, we recommend using Blind Hole, to make it clear that no results are missing.
All tournaments that are chosen for the eclectic must be played on the same course.
This is important because there are facilities that have several courses. Bear in mind that a score doesn't make any sense if the match is played on different courses, for example, hole 16 is par 3 on one course and par 5 on the other. Also bear in mind that individual tees often have another par for specific holes.
Also, 9-hole tournaments that were played in the Course information for tees 10 to 18 cannot be counted at the same time (also because of the different par values), these would influence the score of holes 1 to 9, which is not desired.
At the top of the eclectic score's print-out you can see for which course and with which par the score is calculated.
These considerations are all important. Do you want a comparison under the same conditions?
Or you want different par values to be taken into account in the calculation? Then continue reading: Further options are available from PC CADDIE version 01.09.18. Read =>here
Explanations of the HCP: Deadline and the HCP printed on the list:
Then go to Print (F8).
After clicking on Print (F8), the following window appears:
Here, you can enter an individual header that is also saved with the eclectic definition.
If the Hole results as strokes, not stableford points box is checked, Stableford and stroke play matches can be counted in an eclectic.
Confirm the information by clicking OK:
Please make sure that the handicaps in the Hcp column are set according to the Factor. The different pars are marked in italics (underplayed), underlined (overplayed), or normal (Par) accordingly. An example would look as follows:
The different presentation of individual results is a visual indication of particular results, therefore you can see clearly on the stroke play score:
If several annual eclectics are held in your club, for example, individual eclectics for the women and the men, we recommend that you save each setting under a specific name. You start the saving process with the Save button.
Please save TEXTS on the server in the main PC CADDIE folder, which is suggested by PC CADDIE if nothing else has been entered.
You can re-open the score with Load. If you want to create a new annual eclectic, you can do so with the New button.
You can print the previous hole results on the scorecard. To do this, you must first have the Eclectic result list displayed on the screen and then print out the scorecards. PC CADDIE can save the results and will print them as preliminary results on the scorecard. In order for this to work, the scorecard must be configured with the corresponding field.
If you want to score individual holes, simply use Blind Hole and enter the holes.
This function is also recommended for 9-hole competitions!
Suggestion for HCP and game rules for the play-off in an eclectic scoring
If the results are the same, other criteria should be set instead of playing further rounds, for example consider the result of the last 9, 6, 3, 1 holes of the Eclectic minus the prorated handicap (net).
A typical eclectic evaluation normally only makes sense if the evaluation is made with the same course data and with the same PAR values for all players, as described above.
However, since a large number of tee and course data variants have developed over the years, there is now the possibility to create an eclectic evaluation with different par values for the players. This evaluation only makes sense if you only use the values of the tournament days for the calculation without factors and without a key date . The place shown on the top of the list is still the 1st place or tee, even if the differences between the places involved are calculated.
The HCP column shows the handicaps for the first tournament played in the series are printed out, but the respective game handicaps are always used. This setting also takes into account different par values for the tees involved; the best Stableford result per hole is then determined.
For comparison: these are the same competitions as in the example: “Difference Stableford”: The different par values are also taken into account; for the individual holes, however, the difference is printed out to the Stableford points, which would have to be played for the played HCP for the individual holes.. This means that -1 is an underplay of 1 Stableford point, +1 is bogey, 0 is par, etc.
Set the eclectic score as follows:
To determine the winner after a tie in the playoffs according to the description from 2012, use the Blind Hole scoring method by simply scoring the most difficult hole, and then the two most difficult holes in case of another tie, and so on…
The eclectic score consists of an extra score which is played over three rounds in the indicated period. After the end of the third match day, the overall gross and net winners A, B, and C are determined (deadline for the class division is the last match day). The result of the selection of the eclectic score is calculated as follows: you add the highest amount of Stableford points achieved per hole over several rounds, whereas the lady's daily handicap is taken as a basis. Therefore, per hole only counts the best result from three played holes maximum. Therefore, the overall net winner is the player with the highest amount of Stableford points in their respective class A, B, or C. The overall gross winner is the player with the most gross points.
Enter the eclectic score as follows:
