Possibly, but possibly not.

Details will be confirmed later in the year (probably in September).

And a heads up = Pay no attention to anything anyone else says re the WCGC and the balls - the final decision is mine and mine alone! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Used the same as last year practicing the course - cups are still as bad as before as are the balls. Felt has settled down more and is much better on the newer relaid holes than last year. I predict scoring to be similar, weather depending.

Follow on question - assuming the Hasting ball is used, is it a requirement to use a single ball or can players use multiples, ie to vary bounce given the balls are not consistent. I assume one but wanted to clarify.

You are right to assume only one ball - there will be no slight of hand going on in this years event with same coloured balls being swapped between holes for balls with varying bounce to suit different holes. Not that I would expect this kind of behavior from any of the KMGC.

All players will play with ONE ball throughout the event.

What that ball will be, will be announced soon.

Having been organising events on the tour for the past 7 years (jeez is it that long!!) and having seen and heard a few things in this time I wouldn't be surprised... rest assured this year will be a great leveler as the WCGC's was always intended to be. over the past few years it has become more and more biased towards the regular tour pros and even the move to the standard course ball resulted in lots of chopping and changing of balls thru' practice, along with the added moaning about bounce irregularity, etc, etc (something that was as prevalent in the early days with the old style course balls which if memory serves were not consistent - or even round at times). Compare this to your average entrant who turns up on the Saturday, picks a ball and plays - absolutely the right approach for this particular event.

All players should have the same opportunity and therefore use exactly the same balls - the skill then comes from the player on a level playing field. The better players will always come out on top but we want to encourage new players who at least in this (and the Kent Open) don't feel penalised from the off due to the better ball choices of the pros.

This year I was toying with a genuine random ball draw on the Saturday morning at hole 1 for all players - no testing, no previously used balls in hand. Just a true 'lucky dip'.

As mentioned I will announce the details shortly - but rest assured it will be aimed 100% at leveling the playing field - even favouring the new / non tour pro players. Anyone who argues against this really needs to reassess why they enter this particular event in the first place.

Anyway, time to get off the soap box (there may well be a few more of these 'sermons' as the season draws to a close - something for you all to look forward to!!

Good day to you. Wink
