    a. All ties for 18-hole players will be determined on the basis of the best score on the last nine holes. If the tying players have the same score for the last nine, we will determine the winner on the basis of the last six holes, the last three holes, and finally the 18th hole.

   b. All ties for 9-hole players will be determined on the basis of the best score on the last six holes, last three holes, and finally the 9th hole.

   c. If the players are still tied using the above method, continue backward from the last hole until a winner is determined.
