Kent Open factoid number 6:

The runner up in the 2006 KO won the 2007 KO
The runner up in the 2007 KO won the 2008 KO


If ever there was a time for 4 Strings to make a late season appearance then the 2009 KO would be the one!

Little Chef's on the way to Margate aside, does anyone know of a good place to grab a decent breakfast in Margate on Sunday morning? I thought it would be a fitting end to a great season if the KMGC (and any guests in the vacinity) could meet up for a spot of breakfast before we go down to the course and get ready for the competition. A 9am get together could be a nice way to warm up for the KO... hit the course by 10 for some last minute line tweaks before kicking off at 11.

Any takers & suggestions on where we could meet up? cheers

I have to say that I am really looking forward to this weekends competition probably more so than any of the other years. It's a great line up of talent and I think that the fact that I haven't even had a chance to get down to Strokes since the BO weekend makes it all the more exciting - be like saying hello to an old friend (although not sure how to make this analogy work when thinking about trampling all over them and hitting balls off their borders... need to work on that one I think!!!).

Funny you should say that, when I was polishing the trophy ( Smile ) the other week, I was thinking that I couldn't wait for the KO, that was before the WCGC's! KMGC I am certain will supply a good portion of the leaderboard! I never make predictions (unlike some who fancy their chances so they predict 3rd place for themselves eh Chappers Smile) but, Megabowl=defended title, BMGA Players Championship=defended title. Anyone see a pattern emerging?

lol!

Ooo..a bit of club rivalry banter..I like it!

All I can say is that you'd better bring your A game with you 'No.2'. Fresh from my Club title victory I'll be edging that 3rd place on Sunday lol!
