Multi-round competitions often require a cut to be made based off overall score. The Gallus Tournament Software allows for both options to simplify the process of making a cut.

Steps To Complete

  1. Log into the Gallus admin dashboard.
  2. Click Events.

  3. Select the multi-round event you'd like to make a cut for.

  4. On the checklist page, click Groups.

  5. Select the round you'd like the smaller field to apply to.

  6. Click Make A Cut.

  7. On the ensuing page, select Score, choose the scoring format you'd like to use (Net or Gross), and input the first score that should be included in the round (i.e., 1 would include everyone at +1 or better).

      1. 0 equals even par.
  8. Click Preview to see the cuts reflected in the list below.

  9. Once satisfied with your criteria, click Make Cut.

  10. DONE! Click Auto Generate Groups for the most efficient group generation, or add them manually.
