What happends when two people win in golf?

When two or more people end up tied for the lead in a professional golf tournament, there is what as known as a playoff. The playoff is usually a sudden death one hole playoff, with the winner being the person who has the lowest score on that particular hole, if the scores are tied the process continues until the tie is broken. In the men's major championships there are different ways of breaking ties. In The Masters it is a sudden death playoff, in The US Open it is an 18 hole Monday playoff, in The Open it is a four hole playoff and the USPGA Championship is a 3 hole playoff. In Amateur golf, say at your club at the weekend, ties are usually broken with the best nett score on the back 9, then best back 6,3,2 or 1 depending on how close it is.

How does a golf play off work?

The simplest form of a play off is a sudden death playoff, whoever has the highest score on a hole is eliminated, if the scores are tied the playoff continues until someone is eliminated. The tournament committee is responsible for which hole they choose, it can be the easiest hole or it can be the hardest hole, but usually it is the 18th. In the US Open it is an 18 hole playoff, in the Open it is a 4 hole sudden death playoff.

If you are playing a round and at the end of 18 holes you are tied due to your 5 stroke handicap - do you go to the first hole and give another 5 strokes or do you play square?

According to the USGA Handicap Manual, "Rule 33-6 empowers the committee in charge of the competition to determine how and when a halved match or a stroke play tie is decided. The decision should be published in advance." So there's no firm answer to your question. The USGA recommends that the handicap be assigned in proportion to the number of holes being played in the tie breaking playoff. In other words, if it was a 9 hole playoff you would get half of your five (three, they recommend round up 1/2 strokes). If it was a four hole playoff. you would get 5*4/18, which would be one. You should use your handicap allowance. The handicapping is used on the stroke index of the hole. If your first hole was stroke index 2 you would get a shot.
