Less than a week to go until the title is up for grabs again.

Quite a few players getting some practice in this week - I hear there are a couple of Green chaps down at the course today and tomorrow (clearly keen to try and prize the trophy away form the KMGC - but that's not going to happen!!).

Couple of points:

1) if you are planning to play in the pro-am but haven't confirmed yet, please let me know ASAP

2) We need ONE more player for the event - if you know anyone who fancies a day of matchplay fun then again let me know ASAP!!!

See you at the weekend!

VTK!

Adam's solution for 24 players:-

1) Six groups of 4 round robin, everyone plays 3 rounds, top 2 go into top half, bottom 2 go into bottom half of draw

2) Each half is regrouped into 4 groups of 3, everyone plays 2 rounds, winners go into top four, runners up go into places 5-8 etc

3) Semi-finals and finals

Everyone plays seven rounds as planned!

The format for Sunday is already worked out (will be communicated shortly but retains the Knockout draws after the intial group stage which makes the event unique) but we only have 23 players at the moment - we need another to make it work properly!!!!

Some info on the revised format:

Phase 1 will see the players split into 6 groups of 4. Each group will consist of 3 rounds of 18 hole match play Round Robin play (everyone plays everyone in the group) with 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw. All players play 7 matches across the day.

Phase 2 will see the event revert to a combination of the ‘pools’ format used at the 2010 event and 2 secondary leagues. The top 2 from each group along with the four best performing (highest point scoring) 3rd place players will go into the 16 players Knock out stage for positions 1-16 (4 matches). This will play out as before i.e. winners go through to contest places 1-8 and so on, losers contest places 9-16

The remaining 8 players after the top 16 have been confirmed will be grouped into 2 further groups of 4 to play for positions 17 onwards. These groups will play in a round robin format for rounds 4, 5 and 6.

After the 6th round, the group leaders play each other for 17th & 18th place
The runners up in the groups for 19th & 20th place
The third placed players in the group with play for 21st & 22nd place
The 4th placed players will contest the match for 23rd & 24th place.

The seventh round sees all positions being decided.

In keeping with the event over the past 3 years, there will be no seeding with the draws for the groups (giving the real possibility of at least one group of death!) and also an unseeded draw for each round in Phase 2. The draw for the first round group stages will take place live and broadcast on the internet in advance of the competition. Ranking points (605 in for the winner) will again be apportioned down throughout the field based on final positions.

Just did a test draw for the groups.

And yes, there was a cracking group of death!!!!

Bearing in mind the top 2 go through automatically to the last 16 along with the 4 highest scoring 3rd places. looks like (with the demo draw) we would probably lose 2 out of the 4 from the group of death....

So who were the lucky 4 in the test I hear you ask?

Player 1 - Nick Sandqvist
Player 2 - Michael Smith
Player 3 - Chris Smith (holds CR on Smugglers)
Player 4 - Marc Chapman


Marvellous stuff!!!

Slight blip to the carefully prepared plans - we've had a drop out - unfortunately Owen doesn't feel up to the trip down so Paul will be on his own.

So once again there is a space available if anyone's interested - will put up a notice at the course tomorrow and see if we can entice a local!!

If no-one bites then it's a group of 3 and 5 groups of 4... will work the rest out tomorrow...

See you all at the course!!

Sean.

A major player has withdrawn from the championships - unfortunately for some it's not me, Michael or James but is instead the Crazy Aced Assassin himself, Peter Jones!!

So now Andy & James' group is a three player - all starting on 3 points - good news perhaps for Perfect Par - roll on the morrow!!

There will be a designated practice period for players in Andy's and my group in place of the 'missing' round - details will be confirmed at the course tomorrow.
