Wasn't it Lee Trevino who said?

"You don't know what pressure is until you play for five bucks with only two bucks in your pocket."

Hehe.......

I have got a round on Sunday with Preston so I will see about getting the rest of the money from him and get it all sent over ASAP

First post doesn't include the cost, but it was £125 if I remember correctly? And I have paid £50 deposit (x2), so it should be another £75 you want from both myself and Preston

Updates....

1. Payments. Still waiting for some - Miz B, Doc, Preston, Will_, Big M. When you can please.
2. Shirts - Just waiting for confirmation on Lady sizes (The Swedette and a couple of non-playing guests - i.e. my missus and Dirko' missus) and will put the order in. Still not sure on colour...
3. Trophies. Firstly - with huge relief, rediscovered the 'Cup' - which had been put somewhere safe during home refurbs. Big hand to La Bandita for finally remembering where 'somewhere safe' was. Secondly - did some trophy shopping.
I may have got a tad carried away:banana:

So - there are prizes for:

1. Team competition.
2. Day 1. Longest drive.
3. Day 1. Nearest Pin.
4. Day 1. Strongest Golfer - i.e. the one so strong that he/she is holding up all the others above on the leader board:angry:
5. Day 1. 3rd place
6. Day 1. Runner Up
7. Day 1. Winner

Then....

8. Day 2. Longest Drive
9. Day 2. Nearest Pin
10. Day 2. Strongest Golfer
11. Day 2. 3rd place
12. Day 2. Runner Up
13. Day 2. Winner

Then

14. Overall 3rd place
15. Overall runner Up
16. Overall winner (+holding the cup until recontested)

So - there are 19 possibilities of getting something..and 17 players.:angel:...and I still haven't finalised sundry awards such as Tourist of the Tour etc....

A reminder on the format.

Day 1.

Individual Stableford.

3 balls first, then 4 balls.

No gimmes - it's just simpler. However - if you are out of a hole, pick up. If you hit a shot into the next county, play a provisional and don't waste loads of time on lost causes. We are playing late on Day 1 - and want to have dinner before breakfast. Slow players will be heavily fined.

Additionally - the Pink Ball competition. (Pink in honour of our first ever lady competitor) Each group competes as a team - equally sharing the pink ball.

As we are on late tees - Prizes and fines will take place after Dinner.

Day 2

Individual Stableford.

Groups will go out in reverse order from Day 1 standings. 3 balls first, then 4 balls. Again - no gimmes and no 5 minute pre shot routines. As everyone is driving, there will be no fines for slow play, I will simply punch you.:clapp: A fast game is a happy game!

On Day 2 - we are competing for the Day 2 trophies AND the overall competition - so regardless of performance on Day 1 there is still plenty to play for on Day 2.

Once the final group is in - scores will be tallied up and prizes awarded.

Honorary Referee for the event is Tom - AKA "The Dane" AKA "Carlsberg Boy" - who is a referee, tournament Director etc...

Its all coming together folks.....

Stu you have funds!
OK guys good news! I thought I would treat you all, I recently started working for Xenon golf, and we make some of the finest handmade putters you will see. I have a couple of demo models that I will be bringing with me so you can all have a roll of them, and if you want (first come first serve) can use them in the cup if someone wanted.

Congrats on the new job!

Best place to look is on here http://puttertalk.com/community/index.php?board=129.0
That is where we showcase all our latest work.
Price wise a cnc Head (a pre made head machined head) will cost around $249, and a full handmade piece of art will be $449
Right now with the exchange rate being so good, these work out to quite a nice price for us brits! Be warned that does not include shipping or import tax I am afraid

Yes of course, I should have two right handed putters and I will bring my own personal collection of left handed works of art :)

Nice name! In Swedish "Min trio" is the same as "My trio" so it suits rather well! ;)
