Malenke/Kiewiet (NW)defeat Kamp/Fopma (Dordt)2&1 The format for the event was as follows:
Fourball On the front nine, each player in the foursome plays their own ball on each hole. The player with the lowest score among the four competitors wins the hole for his team. A hole can be conceded at any time. Each 9-hole match is worth 1 point. A match tied or all-square after 9 holes will result in a ½ - ½ point split. The foursome can finish the remaining holes on the front even if the match is officially over.
Foursomes On the back nine, each team decides which individual tees off on the odd holes (beginning on #10); the partner tees off on the even holes. Approach shots and putts are alternated until ball is holed or conceded by the opponents. The low score among the two balls wins the hole. A hole can be conceded at any time. Each 9-hole match is worth 1 point. A match tied or all-square after 9 holes will result in a ½ - ½ point split. When the match is officially over, the group will return to the clubhouse and not complete the remaining holes.
NorDor Cup Day Two (Singles)
Singles Ten one-on-one matches will be played at Landsmeer. The winner is determined by the number of holes won. A player must play his ball into the hole, unless his opponent concedes a putt. Each match is worth 1 point (with 10 points available for the day). A match tied or all-square after 18 holes will result in a ½ - ½ point split. When the match is officially over, the pair will return to the clubhouse and not complete the remaining holes.
The team who accumulates 10 ½ points or more will win the inaugural NorDor Cup. In the case of a 10 – 10 tie, there will be a sudden-death singles match. The participants will be selected by each coach. The winner of the sudden-death singles match will determine the NorDor team champion.
