High School Golf Postseason question
How many kids play in the postseason tournaments in your state as compared to the regular season? I have always paid attention to high school golf but never really noticed that in PA, the number of kids who play in the match or tournament and the number of scores that count are reduced once teams get to the district level. During the regular season, 8 kids play in the matches and it is up to the league to decide how many scores count. Most count 5, a few count 6. When it gets past the league playoffs and then enters the District, then Regional then State tournaments, the number of players playing is reduced to 5 and the number of scores that count is reduced to 4. This really doesn't make sense from a competitive standpoint. I liken it to playing 5 on 5 basketball all year long, then switching to 3 on 3 for the playoffs. Any other state do this or something similar?
