The draw for the first round of the 2015 club Matchplay championships has been announced.
In the fourball, to be completed by 15th July:
Chris Leckey & Anthony Smith vs Geoff Reynolds & Gary Hemus with the winners to play defending champions Richard Bremner & Peter Saunders in the second round;
Phil Adams & Col Booth vs Martin Perry & Justin Bensley with the winners to play former champions Warwick Drew & Jeff O’Brien;
Arthur Bosanquet & Wayne Arnott vs Ray Orr & Pete Munro with the winners to play last year’s runners up Chris Goodwin & Pat Paris;
Tim Young & Shane Townsend vs Dave Ransom & Steve Jackson with the winners to play the well proven team of Peter Francis & Tony McRae.
There are several interesting matchups in the first round with new untried teams and several ‘old hats’ playing. I’m expecting some upset results!
In the single Matchplay, to be completed by June 30th:
Matt Tedeschi vs Chris Goodwin; Peter Saunders vs Warwick Drew; Martin Perry vs Col Booth; Justin Bensley vs Brian Underwood; Boyd Sylvester vs Geoff Reynolds. All others progress automatically into the second round unless there are late entries.
The full draw is situated on the whiteboard near the players’ lounge. Please write the result of your match on the draw.
In both championships players are to use their GA handicap (the point one from golflink, rounded to the nearest whole). Please write down your starting handicap on the draw as it cannot go any higher once the competition starts.
Play well, play fairly and enjoy the competition.
