Do hope Andy can make the 20th. Afraid Saturday's 12th, 19th and 26th are not good.

Hi all,

So, having had feedback from everyone and in light of 6th Oct also predicting heavy rain - we are proposing the event now takes place on Sunday 20th Oct.

Mr.King, will need to confirm this with his work, which he hopes to do by Tuesday 1st Oct.

If this proves an issue, we will look at possibly moving this event to a Saturday.

However, please pencil the 20th in your diaries for now.

:)

A shame the weather is so wet this weekend, a good idea to postpone. Afraid October 27th is no good for me as we are at a wedding on 26th in Hertfordshire and staying overnight. Sunday 20th fine by me. Also, Sunday's 6th and 13th October fine by me. Best wishes Roger

Hi TSGers,

Further to my comment of yesterday, it is with regret that we have concluded it would be best for all parties for us to postpone this year's Matchplay final on account of severe weather.

As JB points out - there is an 80% chance of rain from 11am, and only dropping to 70% at 4pm - not fun for our end of season event and on top of five days rain in the days leading up to it!

#MatchPostponed

Roger, Andy, JB, Steve - if you could confirm your avails for either Sunday 20th or 27th Oct we can make enquires at the club and re-post game asap.

Thanks to all for your patience!

Hi All (especially our finalists!),

We are watching the weather forecast closely and if the predictions continue we may have to postpone (like last year). As the final deserves good weather for both parties.

We will make a call tomorrow.

So, after all the ties have been completed and the matches verified we have our finalists!

Firstly, let's start by thanking everyone that has taken part in this years TSG Matchplay competition in 2019. It's been a great summer full of close matches but as we head to Crown Golf's Addington Court, we now have our two finalists and this year's a third-place play-off competitors secured...

Regretfully Rob Burnell has decided to pull out of the event, however, we have found a suitable replacement in John Barber (who lost to Rob in the Quarter-final).

Finally, we'd like to thank everyone for their support in this event (now in its 7th year). The final pairings are:

----------------------------------

Andy King (3rd place 2018)
vs
Roger Dickson (Matchplay Champion 2013)

----------------------------------

Steve Slater (TSG Par 3 2018, TSG OPEN 2015 and TSG Masters Champion 2016)
Vs
John Barber (TSG Matchplay Champion 2015)

----------------------------------

All players will meet on Sunday 29th September at 11am at Addington Court GC...

So, who's your money on?

Search as i might i can only find the following matchplay result recommendations.

The result of a match becomes final in the way stated by the Committee (which should be set out in the Terms of the Competition), such as:

When the result is recorded on an official scoreboard or other identified place, or
When the result is reported to a person identified by the Committee.

Nothing mentions disqualification for not instantly reporting a result, and it remains the perogative of the winner to announce the score.

I agree with Andy, and of course winner's prerogative to announce scores. It was a wet day and Andy was a deserved winner. Spectacular to get to that green in two, only just missing the birdie.. A good course worth a return trip when the rain is not playing.
Well done Andy..

Well done Roger
You played the better golf on the day even if you did have some lady luck on the front nine. I knew it wasn't going to be my day when I hit a absolute peach of a drive on the 1st only to be 80 yards from the pin smack in the middle of the fairway only to be in a divot that hadn't been repaired. I really dont know where Roger got that the rematch would be played in Norwich as it took weeks to persuade Roger to move it 25 mins from his local course in Croydon to Swanley in Kent. I guess we will never see eye to eye and agree to disagree on so many things. However as I said well done Roger you played the better golf on the day and hope you enjoy your final at your local course. Needless to say I didn't enjoy the 3.5hour drive home on a Friday afternoon. Congratulations Roger

Anyway. Steve and I played Birchwood Park in very bad wet conditions on Aug 12th. The rain came and went, Steve took an early lead, but it swung a bit towards the middle. Back nine I pulled away a bit, managed to get 2 up by about the 14th hole. I pulled a shot I was very proud of to get on the 15th green in 2 ( if you know Birchwood, you'll know how good / lucky that was ). Then the heavens opened again. With a half on the 16th we shook hands and almost ran for the clubhouse, me winning 3 and 2. Steve was a generous friendly opponent who played well and very steady. The conditions were certainly a factor. Good luck to Steve in the 3rd/4th playoff. So onto Addington Court we go.

Well, even though it was Steve's idea to keep the Semi result quiet until both games are played, he seems indisposed to give the earlier result. I wasn't sure about staying quiet, but as the previous comments came flooding in, I found it all so amusing. Members whose influence in the 2019 Matchplay has long expired calling for players to be removed from the process, not for comments they've made...but non comments. Things that WEREN'T said ?? Very strange.

It was very hot today at Pedham Place and it was a very close and enjoyable Semi-Final between Roger & Rob. Roger started well going 4 up after 5 holes and still maintaining this lead after the 10th. Rob then responded really well winning the 11th ,12th and 13th, reducing the margin to just 1. The 14th was halved but on the 15th, stroke index 1, Rob took advantage of his shot to level the match. A 3 on the tricky par 3 16th restored Roger's one hole lead. A very tense 17th saw both players record a double bogey, so it was all on the 18th, a Par 3 over water. Facing the prospect of another 18 holes in Norwich if we finished all square, which had been agreed prior to starting, Roger hit the tee shot into the water, Rob responded by going out of bounds. The only 2 rubbish tee shots all day. Such was the pressure of a Match play semi-final! Rob then followed up by also going in the water from the tee. Roger dropped for 2 and put his 3rd within 2 feet of the pin. Rob conceded and we shook hands with a 2 up victory for Roger.

Thank you Roger & Rob. That is the spirit of the game.
