Golf & MMA question

In UFC, what;s the difference between a majority decision & split decision. If there's 3 judges and it's not unanimous, the other two seem the same to me.

In golf, my question is how to calculate the number of putts on a hole. Say one is on the green with a tee shot on a par 3. Then strongly putts off the green let's say right behind a deep ledge in a sand trap & takes 3 strokes to get out and back on the green again. Then 2 putts to the hole.Are all those considered putts even tho they are from off the green & with a wedge? Is it considered 3 putts or 6 ?

Just wonderin

Majority Decision is when 2 judges scorecards have it in favor for 1 fighter & the 3rd judge scorecard has it as a draw

On the golf question I would only consider the putts on the green as putts. so I would say 3 putts

I don't know if this helps or not but Infound this on the Internet!

How to Count Putts
Q. Our club has a game each week for the lowest putts. What is the recommended method for counting putts?

A. The Rules of Golf do not address how statistics are kept. In USGA Championships where putts are counted, the player has made his first putt once he has made a stroke from the putting green and all subsequent strokes are counted as putts. It is up to the Committee in charge of the event to determine how putts will be counted and the method used for counting.
