In order to secure your place in this year’s event, join this group by Sunday 20th March at Midnight and we will put your name in the hat for the draw. This competition is ONLY open to TSG PRO members and there is only room for 64 golfers and you will require a TSG Handicap to enter(3+ cards). The tournament will be a knock-out style format and you will have one month to complete each match. First player in each tie has first dibs on venue. Games will commence in April. Standard MatchPlay rules will apply but MUST be agreed by both players before the match begins (more info to be published at start of competition). Those failing to complete their games will have their matches decided by the toss of a coin. It's free to enter and will culminate in a Grand Final on Sunday 25th Sept at Woldingham Golf Club. This year will also see a third place play-off. Finalists will play for free and others wishing to come along for a 'social' day in order to watch the winner crowned will be able to do so at 'Members' rates (TBC).

Tuff tuff tuff never played in game so close you are tuff aponant so jealous of your driving my driver is in the mend shop so close to chucking it thanks for the day an defiantly look forward to playin you again
Congratulations to Wayne who beat me on the first playoff hole. It was a tight game which could've gone either way, but I think you deserved it in the end. Look forward to playing you again in the future and good luck in the final.
Many thanks Martin and for crossing over Dartford Bridge for our matchplay at Pedham Place GC. A fab day with no wind which is unsual for this links course. It was a competitive to and fro game with leads swapping and lots of holes halved. Good luck to you too Martin in your 3rd place playoffs. See you there on the day
Congratulations to Tuan who beat me 2 up. Super steady all the way round. Nailed all your tee shots which was the clincher. Pleasure to play with you and Good Luck in the final.
Thanks Steve, I didn't start well by nearly turning up to the wrong course!, so thought that might be a bad day from then. You had a better front nine but my the back nine with good putting which is unsual. Cheers also to Ed & Keith for their interests and support to the matchplay. No doubt i'll be seeing you soon Brigitte
Well done "Leftie" Tuan. I knew you would be in the final. See you at Woldingham if not before. Brigitte
Congratulations to Tuan who in the end had a convincing win over me today 4 & 3 after a very steady overall game from him especially at the turn where he really piled on the pressure. Three very long hole outs from off the green saw him surge ahead and take his well deserved win. Thanks also to Ed for arranging the game and Keith also for joining us - really enjoyable game and well played Tuan and good luck for your remaining games
