Hadn't thought of this before, as most tourneys I play in are even races so we want to win the flip and break first.
But when we win the flip of a coin, we actually get the OPTION if we want to break or not first.
This came up during the Omega Tour stop last month and is a good point. Since the Tour is handicapped, sometimes you DON'T want to break first - because in a handicap race that may mean you are not breaking if it goes hill-hill.
Hence the term, "Flip for the Break." In lieu of "winner of the flip breaks.'
I am surprise this is the first time it's come up for me! So, thought I'd share.
