Top Gun – final qualifiers
After three months of qualifying rounds the following players won their way into Sunday’s (Nov 11) Top Gun shoot out.
Gary snuck in ahead of Marea Maher, Bryan Sword and Andy Bassett who are all on standby as emergencies.
For those not familiar with this event, we start off with 19 players on the first tee. The player with the lowest stableford score drops out and the remaining 18 continue on to the 2nd hole. In the event of two or more players having an equal low score on a hole a chip off is used to determine who is eliminated. One player drops out on each hole until we have two nervous golfers left on the 18th tee vying to become the 2018 Top Gun.
It is a fun spectator event so feel welcome to have a look at some stage during the day. The qualifiers tee off at 9:00 am and the final hole will be played at about 2:30 pm.
It is spring carnival time so we will be running a “Calcutta” on Thursday (8 Nov) where brave punters can buy the player they think has a chance to win the event. Neil Mackenzie has been honing his old auctioneer skills to sell the players to us. The auction of players will start after Thursday’s presentations, around 2:00 pm.
Good hitting to the 19 qualifiers.
