Kent Open factoid #14:

A first for the Kent Open - all play offs at the weekend will mirror the play off format from the 2011 British Open (a cumulative 4 hole play off - 9, 10, 17, 18) rather than the traditional sudden death version.

factoid 15- tk max had more aces in his first three holes (3) than in the next 51 (2)

factoid 16- each of the top three groups for the final round featured 2 of the WCGC prizewinners

factoid 17- 2011 KO had the lowest average age on the podium of any event in BMGA history (19 years old (and top 6 average age was only 24 (don't actually know for sure that it is the lowest average age at the top of a leaderboard ever- but can't believe it isn't)))

great tournament today- one ball only rule worked really well Very Happy

see you all in dorridge- VTK.

'by Michael ยป Sun Nov 13, 2011 9:00 pm

Three excellent performances from Freddie, Adam and Seth. Never mind the future, they are the present! Congratulations to Seth, this will be the first win of many.'


Agreed on the three performances...but the rest is codswallop from HIOK! Even if one or two of us win the odd event here or there, Michaels dominance this season will continue through the next, and well into the future.

Anyway, who's Seth playing for next year?....sign him up perhaps....??

Great stuff yet again from the best scribe the BMGA has ever known! Michael, how on earth do you remember the snippets people say, do you carry a mini recorder? Smile If so I'll try & keep my swearing down after one of my duff rounds.
As for: Then he sealed the victory with a superb shot of great skill for an ace at Niagara Falls.
That is really stretching your journalistic licence to the limit!
lol!
BTW, a video of that particular shot has found it's way to a gleeful FB's inbox, I'm sure we'll see it again! Twisted Evil
