Ok guys & girls the 2007 Final is being played this weekend so now is a good a chance as any to see how many of us are keen for next years event. The OzGolf Year is Champs to Champs isn't it?


What should we set as the rules for the event?

Should we have time limits for rounds?

Should we limit entries to 16 or have a bigger field with no doubt a lot of 1st round byes?


DRAW DONE!!

No toys left in the cot after the All Blacks v Frogs game :(

Just saying I'm concentrating on 2007 before thinking about defending... I mean playing in 2008 ;)

You in now Mike, 2007 OzGolf year is over for matchplay now.

To the rest of you fellow NSW OzGolfers, who is keen for another go at this. This worked in some ways and didn't in others, any suggestions to make it better?
How about we register interest now and try to play all 1st round matches by the 31 January 2008. The OzGolf season starts the week after the champs is over so why not get the ball rolling early. We could even try to have a 1st round matchplay day where as many matches as possible ore on the same day.

I will start the playing list,

Grant,

It may be best if I opt out of the 2008 matchplay, especially after dropping out of the 2007. With the difficultly I have playing weekends, I might just watch from the sidelines.

mikezone13
28th October 2007, 06:44 PM
Put andrew and I in a first round, I'll play weekdays against him ;)

Maybe this raises an interesting point, everyone should nominate their best days of the week for play.

Grunt
28th October 2007, 06:58 PM
How would I fit that Mike, any week means a different set of days?

As everyone else has bumped theirs here is ours, any more interest? Jim are your going for 4 in a row?

jimandr
10th December 2007, 07:19 PM
I'm always available for a Matchplay game, and I'll adjust my working days to fit in a weekday game against an opponent who can't do weekends.

I don't think we can do anything to encourage those who don't want to play. If we only get 8 definite starters then so be it, but we should wait until 2008, and perhaps a few weeks into the year before making any 2008 decisions.

We might have to give Jono a medical exemption to delay his first game, but we should study his doctors certificate closely.

The excuse that it was 2007 when expressions of interest were asked for is now gone. 10 more entrants would be nice. Maybe even organise a Sunday round where all 1st round matches are played would be good.

?16 would be a great number but 8 is workable. When should we close this and get it going. If we get stuck at 7, I guess it is ok too. Defending Champ gets a bye in the 1st round.

MAy be interested. In interests of full disclosure, have given up a club membership due to lack of time with young family and other pursuits, so would need a handicap appraisal.

Somewhere around 27 would be appropriate based on current levels of play (2 games since May)

Just to make sure I don't stuff anyone around at all, there are a couple of dates coming up that I know I won't be available so thought I should let you know, obviously if the dates clash then I miss out. Dates are -

W/E of 12 & 13th Jan (Son's first week at daycare and if I ask to play golf, I will not be able to have another child).

Sat 26th (Son's 1st birthday and again not in my best interests to even ask to play this day)

Sat 2nd Feb (Niece's b'day, and personally I don't care if I go, but the wife sees different...)

You don't have to play the games all in one big group. You can just arrange your game against your opponent and play by yourselves or with just a few of ya's. There is usually just a cut off date for finishing each rounds, and you can play any time within that timeframe. Pretty accommodating really ;)

3oneday
2nd January 2008, 02:40 PM
Grant, may I suggest you stick a date down when you think the 1st round should be completed by. Given we have until November for the final ? I think Easter would be a good date to have the first round played. That gives everyone 10 ? weeks and might get a few folks interested.

Close it for entries 14th January (say), do the draw and sit back and relax.

That would be my suggestion.

If the Qld guys can get their comp started, then so should we.

At this point there will be 4 first round matches and 4 byes. I reckon if Zipptopp or Coffs or TS or Fishman Dan etc change their minds, they can be randomly drawn to fill a bye before a specific date, say 1 February.

Any thoughts?

Grunt
11th January 2008, 09:11 PM
Looks like we will have a 12 person field out of 16. So as Jim has said there will be 4 1st round byes. I will do the Draw as follows;

Round 1 - Completion before 31 March 2008
Game 1: Jimandr v Bye(16)
Game 2: 2 v Bye(15)
Game 3: 3 v 14
Game 4: 4 v 13
Game 5: 5 v 12
Game 6: 6 v 11
Game 7: 7 v 10
Game 8: 8 v 9

Round 2 - Quarter Finals - Completion before 30th May 2008
Game 9: G1 v G5
Game 10: G2 v G6
Game 11: G3 v G7
Game 12: G4 v G8

Round 3 - Semis - Completion before 30 August 2008
Game 13: G9 v G10
Game 14: G11 v G12

Round 4 - Final - Completion before 2008 OzGolf Champs (November)
Game 15: G13 v G14

We shall have a random draw, as it is easier than working out rankings. Only non random spot will be the defending champ. Jim will automatically gain the #1 spot. Other free spots will stay open for late starters for a little while longer and will go in the draw in order to minimise the amount of free slots into the 2nd round. Do the completion dates seem ok for each round to be completed?

Will do the draw Sunday night.

AndyP
11th January 2008, 10:13 PM
You've given longer for the all of the latter rounds, than the 1st round even though there are less matches in those rounds. Two to three months to finish the last match seems excessive.

I gave the time for that last match as to let the guys up there have a known NSW champ before the Champs. I have adjusted the 1st round another month so that includes Easter. ONce it gets started there is normally no problems in getting through the matches down here.

Grunt
13th January 2008, 07:20 AM
Will add you and in fact you do get Coffshacker so it might just be the perfect draw then.

Reason it was closed as such, was that it would take forever to do if we did not set up a timeframe. This was started at the End of Last years matchplay and those that want to play have expressed interest and those that did not, did so too. Can't please all the people, all the time.

For anyone else there now is one free spot, you get to play the 2005, 2006 & 2007 NSW Matchplay champ in the first round.:shock:

Chopper and myself are looking at a midweek game on Wednesday 7 May. The venue might be either Kareela or Bexley. Not the most attractive set of options, but Chopper is a Shire boy and I can't ask him to travel too far into the real world. Any midweekers who are free that day might like to keep their diaries open. It is still a bit early to post a thread for the game.

That would be the ideal situation Mike, for the next round of matches we may be able to do that.

I have no objection, in fact I would prefer it. Chopper indicated that the 6th was one of the days he was not working. I'll PM him and see what he wants to do.

I only picked the 7th because there are more Wednesday Open Day option than there are on Tuesdays.

The 6th is fine by me, sounds like a good foursome and enjoyable day out. Now the only thing to do is organise where.

Thought I would start some interest into this match tomorrow.

I am backing Brad to pull this one off. Pete (31D) will be struggling early. Brad you just have to do what I did at Glenmore, nail a few big putts and it is all over.

What is the actual handicap difference? Brad 19, 3oneday 4?

Go the underdog!!

Thanks Grant, I thought you were going for Brad... very kind 8)

6 so the gap is around 13 shots, still a good deal for Brad.

Think we have only had the one game too! You seem a popular bloke, every round we have had lined up others have wanted the game more.

Ahh Maybe, or should I not see what is going to happen to me. One good thing is the longer it take the more shots I will have. The handicap is going backwards fast.

I'd say we can all wait until until mid-july for the final semi place to be determined.

I'm still looking for the magic ingredient that will turn me into a reasonable player again, so I'm in no hurry. I won't even propose a set of options for my game with 3oneday until after the other game is completed.

Grunt
25th August 2008, 09:03 PM
Ok we have to get this going again.
What does everyone think we should do here? Opinions wanted from those in this. Other opinions will be listened too but may not be taken in to consideration.

TS has conceded, should Mikezone13 get a free run into the semis or should another player from the field get another go at it? This would mean that Mike would have to play the 1/4 final still.

I am in a difficult position in all this as I am still in the hunt and play Mikezone or whoever in the next round.

We are seriously starting to run out of time with this if we are to complete it before the Champs.

Grunt
27th August 2008, 09:59 AM
Ok looks as if no one is worried that Mikezone13 gets a run into the Semis.

Mike when are you available for a game?
Hit me with some dates and I will see what my roster tells me.

We need to get this played by 30th September at the latest. Same for the other semi, Jim & Pete.

Also final needs to be played before the champs, 1st week in November

3oneday
27th August 2008, 10:48 AM
I could possibly play on the October long weekend somewhere. I have to play a certain number of games at my home club prior to the champs, which start the weekend after the long weekend.

mikezone13
27th August 2008, 01:13 PM
Dates out for me...

Saturday 30 August
Sunday 31 August
Sunday 7 September - This could be open if my team doesn't win our soccer semi-final this saturday
Saturday 13 September - Again I think this is out, but not 100% sure
Sunday 14 September
Saturday 20 September
Sunday 21 September
Saturday 27 September
Sunday 28 September

So based on the above a weekday is best, or Saturday 6th Sep or maybe 7th Sep depending on football result this weekend.

Grunt
27th August 2008, 04:28 PM
I'm out 7th of September, working. Saturdays are tough to get a tee time anywhere too. So Sundays and midweek may be the only options.

September Dates I am free
Thursday 4th (early hit, have an afternoon meeting at work)
Friday 5th
Saturday 6th
Saturday 13th (game booked at Calderwood with Jono)
Sunday 14th
Monday 15th (game booked at NB with QF engineering Golf Club, you're welcome to join us)
Tuesday 23rd
Wednesday 24th (another early start as I have an afternoon meeting)

Pete

October long weekend is fine by me, either the Sunday or the Monday. I'm not going anywhere that weekend.

Unlike our colleagues, we should take further discussions on this matter into the PM world until much closer to the date.

For the record, I think that as TS forfeited, Mike should go through. Luck of the draw, and all that stuff.

Not sure which one of the 2 of them I want to play in the final.

Should I get Pete, I flogged him once before he may want revenge

Jim, the undefeated NSW matchplay Champ 2005/06/07. Tough

Think I have played enough games with both to know I will have to work to win. They will have to give me quite a few shots though. (8-10 I think)

Congrats Jim

4 in a row.

I tried as hard as I could and was not good enough when my off the tee game left me today. I wanted to be the OzGolfer that beat Jimandr for the 1st time. Hopefully next year I will get to meet you again and be the OzGolfer to knock you off.

I am in for next year.

Good work to all involved for getting it all done and dusted the week before the OzGolf Champs.
