Does anyone have any advice to deal with this?

We have a trophy competition in which pairs are randomly selected from those putting their names down to participate. So we end up with x number of 4-balls and one 3-ball.

What can we do with the 3-ball?

Jim, you know that in 4bbb comps 1 player is allowed to represent the side when the other player isn't present.
But could join the game at any point :D

Pair one of the players with each of the other two & play two 4BBB games that way. The lucky one has two chances to win (& two chances to ruin the other players' scores)

Tell the 3 players they can't play :) . Probably not the ideal solution you were looking for, but no idea is a bad idea when brainstorming.

Tell the 3 players one of them needs to find a partner.

Issue a request to all members for one additional player.

Put player 3 down as a first reserve in case of a no show or someone dropping out.

Tell player 3 to play all holes and have a random draw from all the other players and that player's score to used as his playing partner's score.

Someone is going to have to play on their own.

I had to do this once when my partner didn't show up and couldn't get in touch (pre mobile phones).
