Card Matching Tie Breaking
Card Match means using the described method in Section 9 of the USGA Handicap System Manual. 
Under the USGA Handicap System Manual method, scores are compared for the last nine holes, then the last six holes, then the last three holes, then finally the last hole to determine a winner. In order to select this method, scores must have been entered hole-by-hole when using Tournament Software . The winner will have a lower rank in the sort order than the loser. 
From USGA Handicap System Manual Section 9-5 (iii) Playoff Not Feasible; Matching Scorecards 
If a playoff of any type is not feasible, matching scorecards is recommended. The method of matching cards should be announced in advance and should also provide what will happen if this procedure does not produce a winner. An acceptable method of matching cards is to determine the winner on the basis of the best score for the last nine holes. If the tying players have the same score for the last nine, determine the winner on the basis of the last six holes, last three holes and finally the 18th hole. If this method is used in a competition with a multiple tee start, it is recommended that the "last nine holes, last six holes, etc." is considered to be holes 10-18, 13-18, etc.
