I was playing a bracket tournament and tied in the second round with my next opponent. Even though I scored 69 to his or hers 77, he or she was moved on while I was bumped. this has happened repeatedly and I want to know why.
Will anyone explain to me how the one leading gets the axe every time.
Yep, you had a 69 to that persons 77 in round one.
In round 2 both of you tied when playing against each others score. I figure due to WGT's tie breaking rules the other player won and advanced to round 3. You lost due to tie breaker rules. Find them and read them to better understand, they are on the website. Search over → → → → → → → there.
Each round of a bracket is like a tournament to itself. Once that round is over, your scores for that round no longer matter. You need to understand how brackets work. You only are playing against the score of your opponent in that round. Not everyone else within that bracket round.
So many times we read, "I shot lower then someone else in that round, but they advanced and I didn't".
