Over the next two days the six-player teams will fight for one of the eight places available in Flight A of the match play phase, which gives them the opportunity to compete for the trophy and medals. The aggregate of the five lowest stroke play scores on day one and two will constitute each team’s total score for determining the match play draw.
From Thursday to Saturday the nations will then face each other in match play. The medal matches will be played over two foursomes in the mornings and five singles in the afternoon, whereas the non-medal matches consist of one foursome followed by four singles.
