To save time, I like to have the Home Team put up their matchups for both morning AND afternoon rounds at the same time. (After the Visitors have set their matchups for the morning!) That way I can get a jump on the scorecards for the afternoon during the lunch break. All I do is wait for the Visitor to finish the matchups and add them to the cards that are ready to go. That is what GBP did before they knew that Chompy was hurt.
And yes. If one team has the 2 players for dubs and the other team cannot field anybody to play against them they get the free Match point. The dubs team should play 1 hole and score less than 7 strokes. That will give them the point for the dubs match and give them the stroke differential in case of a tie. If they don't play any holes I give them zero strokes & the opponent one stroke, so it won't help the tie breaker very much if you don't play the round.
(In the morning I encourage the dubs pairs to actually play the whole round as players from the other team could show up late and conceivably win the match)
BTW these are both good questions!
