Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Linda:

A database search for a question on how to schedule 20 golfers in groups of 4 was very helpful (Mona's answer referred to by C. Fisher 9-3-2008) I'm very glad I found this sight.
Our problem is we will have 21 golfers in the second half of the season. Is it possible to figure out that schedule? I assume we will have to include byes, but I'm not sure how to go about doing that.
Thank you.


The best thing is to sub out a different player in each week of the second half of the season. It should not matter much which one. Maybe there are people who need to be away and the selection van happen "naturally".
