Once a match is over, players should be aware of who won/lost and note the score (on the left of the chart).  Players can keep playing and finish the 18 holes, but should be aware that the remaining holes have nothing to do with their match. In many match play tournaments players are required to leave the course at the conclusion of their match, regardless to which hole the match is concluded on.  Players should just be aware of how typical match play tournaments are conducted.  The Match Play Coordinator is responsible for ensuring the scores are recorded and points are awarded accurately.
