It wouldn’t have mattered what FIHCOT decided, Felix still would’ve lost this particular hole to Matt Crawf in the 2014 MM Final.

Dear Gents,

The Fairness in Handicapping Committee of the Gentlepersons’ World Tour (FIHCOT) recently met. After prawn cocktails and shots of tequila, the esteemed Gents cast their learned eyes over the matters to hand, namely, the efficacy of the current handicapping system for the Tour.

2018 B’n’D – The Herminator Strikes!

IMG_4684 -+ Cravo Copy

The finest golfers on the Planet, getting ready to tame Huonville GC. (LtoR) Cravo (insert), Leroy, Felix, Ian, Gaz, Darvy and Basil.

It was the highest performance B’n’D ever – in fact six of the seven Gents shot a high enough stableford score to have won previous editions. Ian and Leroy both shot their best ever rounds off the stick, and Bas was amazing as always. But no one could match the power and precision of the Herminator and his B’n’D record 41 points. Read on for how it happened.

2018 GWT Season Preview

With (at least) one more baby due this year, the Gentlepersons’ World Tour had some scheduling issues to consider in laying out the Majors for 2018. 

The Committee also had to take into account the packed 2019 schedule when planning the 2018 roster.

The Par 4 8th hole at Hootersville River GC. Would Defending Champ Basil pull the trigger and nominate his old stomping ground as the 2018 B’n’D venue?

Bas was our Player of the Year, with 2 wins and 2 x 2nd place finishes. Just awesome! Bas and Leroy are the only Gents to have won this gong.

2017 saw Basil Beaver (our World Number One), Stu McDougall (2016 Rookie sensation) , Matt Crawford (2015 MM Runner-Up)  and the Good Doctor Gaz (2nd in the 2015 Rookie of the Year) return to Championship Golf. Sensational. Welcome back boys.

And there was lots of HOT GOLF.

2017/18 Lost Bougle – Dodging the Rain

The short par 3 4th hole at Lost Farm

The 8th Edition of the most prestigious Major on the Gentlepersons’ World Tour roster was held in early December 2017. This time it featured two Lost Farm rounds and one Barny. 

The challenge as always – beat the absolute best Bouglers (Leroy & Basil). Leroy wins every second Bougle on average, and Basil always finishes in first or second place. Would it be another Leroy or Basil win, or could someone else pinch it? Would Matt, Ian or Gaz nab their first Lost Bougle Title?

Three brutal days of strokeplay played in rain, showers and wind provided all the answers…..

Felix is not inclined to lose, being the winner of the past 3 MM Finals and still channelling the Aurora Curse.

Can Basil do it? Or will Felix go B2B2B2B?

Follow all the action from another classic Gentlepersons’ World Tour Matchplay Masters Final, the 6th instalment.
