Once again thanks to the course owners for making us so welcome.

Will the AGM be in there too on Saturday or still in the Wendy house?

It depends on whether or not one of the club pros is using it - if they aren't then yes we'll be in the ex-cafe otherwise it's the party hut!

Hi Matt, it's just the standard £5 day rate (for BMGA tour pros) payable to the course on the day.

OK on with the format.

The KENT OPEN BALL is the only ball allowed

4 rounds of matches, 1 point for a win, half a point for a draw. There are 24 points up for grabs - reach 12.5 points and that team has won (details of what they win will be announced tomorrow).

All ties will be maximum of 18 holes matchplay (win, halve or lose each hole)... although each round will be a different format. Matches can be tied.

Before each round, the captains will present their playing order to the organiser (me) and the ties will be announced.

It is likely that we will be playing shotgun starts (i.e not all matches will start at hole 1) although hoping to do round 4 as a rolling start. All players can have 1 practice shot at their opening hole in each round.

So the details of the rounds:

ROUND 1 - Singles 8 matches

Standard Matchplay rules apply. Winner of the coin toss decides whether to go first or second at their opening hole. Players play out the hole in turn (Gimmies are allowed in all matches by the way). Player order alternates at each hole (one player always goes first on odds, the other on evens). Basically your standard British Matchplay Championship rules.

ROUND 2 - Doubles 4 matches

2 players on each team. Standard Doubles Matchplay rules apply (with a twist!). Winner of the coin toss decides whether to go first or second at their opening hole. Team order alternates at each hole (one team always goes first on odds, the other on evens). Players on each team alternate shots until the ball is holed or the hole is won/drawn/lost. Players on each team also alternate teeing off duties (one player always goes first on odds, the other on evens).

The twist? This round has both balls in play (a la Crazy Crazy rules). Team farthest from pin takes 'strike' once both teams have teed off at each hole. No ball marking. If the ball is in your line, you play around it or thru' it!!!

ROUND 3 - Pairs 4 matches

2 players on each team again (they do not have to be the same pairings as round 2 - that's for the captains to decide). Winner of the coin toss decides whether to go first or second at their opening hole. Team order alternates at each hole (one team always goes first on odds, the other on evens). Team playing order remains the same (i.e. one player always tees off first, the other second). In this pairing the combined scores on each hole count (not just the lowest of the two).

ROUND 4 - Singles 8 matches

As round 1 BUT with both balls in play. Farthest from pin takes 'strike' once players have teed off at each hole. No marking. If the ball is in your line, you play around it or thru' it!!!

And that I believe is that!!!!

Just the matter of the name of our 2 captains and the winners bounty to announce…

Couple more updates:

Round 2 & 4 - No Gimmies allowed (ensures we keep both balls in play and will probably result in players needing to be creative regarding lines, etc)

Round 4 - may try out true matchplay rules with the winner of each hole teeing off first at the next hole. Think of it as a test event for the BMC's later in the year. Will confirm this on Sunday

CAPTAINS:

We have all 4 of the KMGC club team captains from the Club Championship in attendance (myself, The Natural, DT and DG) - none of which will be in the draw for the team captains on Sunday.

To all of Team Michael... It was an honour to captain such a fine bunch of people. The attitude, spirit, and performance was fantastic. To win the match and beat a team that included 4 of the top 8 players in the Order of Merit is the icing on the cake, but had the result gone the other way, I still would have been just as proud. It was a true team effort from the 8 of us. A huge thank you to you all.

To all the rest of the KMGC... If one tournament can sum up what this great club is all about, this was it. Quality putting, a lot of banter, but ultimately, a brilliant spirit and sportsmanship from both teams throughout. It was so much fun to play. Already can't wait for Puttermania 3!!

Congratulations to Team Michael and well done to my team on a great effort. All of the matches were played in a great spirit. Thanks as always to Sean and Marion for putting together such a fun day with an enjoyable range of formats.

I'll echo what Captain Michael said.. What a fantastic and fun day. The match was a lot closer than the final scoreline suggests, with several close matches and i'm sure many tense moments. Thanks to my partner (capt Michael) and all my opponents for the spirit in which all matches were played.

Thanks again to Sean and Marion for yet another great event, Puttermania needs to be a permanent fixture on the KMGC calendar
