HANDICAP DIVISION FINALS

Matches will be set up similar to the scratch division, however if there are less than 16 handicap finalists, byes will be needed in the first round of matches. Any byes that are necessary will be given to the bowlers with the highest 8-game qualifying totals.

MATCH PAIRINGS: In all rounds, the highest seeded remaining bowler will face the lowest seeded bowler remaining in competition. In the first two rounds of matches, the higher seeded bowler must win one game to win the match and advance to the next match; the lower seeded bowler must win two consecutive games to win the match and advance to the next round. In the third and fourth round of matches, one game will be bowled to determine the winner of each match. Bowlers eliminated in the same round of the finals will be placed in the standings based on their 8-game qualifying total to determine scholarship winnings.
