    Default 2010 NSW Matchplay Set up

    Hi All

    As Ping Jnr won the Matchplay title last week it now means we can get the ball rolling for the 2010 version.

    Some things popped up this year that we have to avoid let happen again. Forfeits, I know some are unavoidable but this year was shocking we had more forfeits than matches played.

    What can we do to fix this?

    Should we have a post count before you can play in it? Alot of low posters said they would play but later forfeited.
    Do we need a pre qual? Small field of 16 maybe?
    Do regular players have preference in the seeding? previous Champ is 1
    Strict time limits on games?
    A round Robin setup like the NQ Matchplay? Regular games wit ha few matches held.
    Need to cater for mid week games?

    Post ideas to fix the problem so next year flows smoothly. All ideas will be considered.

    Also guys & girls register your interest here too.

    Draw Done and added here as an excel attachment

    After a little think about it, I have a feeling I might not be able to get a handicap in time to participate, plus I don't know if the schedule over the next month or 2 will be favourable. So I'll need to rule myself out...

    Jim

    I would be in but am not sure of where I would fit into the draw midweek or Weekend.
    I am sure to go back on shift work soon as I have had almost 12 months off shift and any longer will be a definite bonus.

    Slot me in where you feel best fits. I should know more in where I am headed with work by March/April. I will fit in where you put me.

    Time to bump this thread as a reminder to those who haven't nominated, but they are thinking about playing.

    I am going to do the draw on Sunday evening, mainly to give those persons lucky enough to be on holidays in January the chance to organise a game if they need to.

    At this stage I anticipate a number of vacancies, which I will allow latecomers to fill (but they don't get to choose their opponent) until the end of January. After that, anyone with a bye automatically advances.

    Depending on time frames I may be able to make a mid week game. After April or so I should be fine for the odd weekend hit also.

    If it helps to get more people, I may be able to do a central coast game against an opponent from up that way...

    OK, NSW Ozgolfers. The draw is done. I've asked Grunt to make an excel spreadsheet and paste it into the opening post. I'll ask him to change the title of the thread as well.

    1. Ping Jnr v 16 (vacant - bye)

    5. Coffs Hacker v 12. Jono

    8. Grunt v 10. TerryS

    14 (vacant - bye) v 3. PingLauncher

    2. Dotty v 15. Burger* * = not confirmed as a starter yet

    6. Titliest v 11. (vacant - bye)

    7. ParMaster (aka Pup) v 9. KristianJ* * = not confirmed

    13. Sydney Hacker v 4. Jimandr

    The numbers don't mean anything, except for the Pings, who I gave preference to.

    As readers can see, there are still some vacancies to be filled if latecomers want to nominate.

    The usual other rules apply. Every effort should be made to play at neutral venues, and a comp game under strict rules of golf is preferable to a social round. One of the reasons for this competition is to give us a reason to meet each other, so all matches should be announced in advance to give others a chance to join the group or act as witnesses.

    I'll send a PM to Pup and KristianJ. There is an issue to worked out that is best done out of the public eye.

    Enjoy your matches everybody.

    To elaborate on my previous post, I've decided to leave the golf membership and handicap obtaining to after my cricket season finishes in early March, since I know my weekends will then be free to play comps and get that number.

    If there's an acceptable way to be part of the matchplay in the meantime (which may well come up in the PM you send, Jim), I'll happily work with it, but if not, I'm not going to feel left out or anything.

    Jim did you come up with any cut off dates for games?

    Has anyone organised their games yet? I will edit the excel to add venues and dates

    Default NSW Matchplay

    G'day everyone,
    Just wondering when/where/time you guys are holding the matchplay games. If places are still available, I'm interested in playing but it depends on details. Also, do I need an AGU handicap to play?
    Cheers

    Whacker,

    As none of us have seen you play, I think we'll have to insist upon you having a handicap of some type that can be independently checked.

    Your post implies that you haven't got an AGU handicap, but if you had a social club handicap that we could check, we might accept that.

    That person might be Titliest. I have allocated Live4golf into the bye that was in that spot.

    There are still a few opportunities, and some players who indicated their interest have not responded to my PM, so I'm not sure whether they are still interested.
