IMG_4223

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…..

Bas and Felix – legends of the GWT

World Number One Basil Beaver badly wants a win here to be the first Gent to grab a Career Slam. Felix is not inclined to lose, being the winner of the past 3 MM Finals and still channelling the Aurora Curse. He’s also sporting an unwashed shirt through the entire MM series (5 months) to add extra mojo and whiffo.

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.

MM 2017 – Round Robins

 

IMG_3717

Gaz won his first ever MM match with this clutch up and down on the last at the New Norfik Super Sunday.  Put it right in the heart of the hole. Congrats Good Doctor!

A massive field of 8 Gents, including Dr Gaz, Matt, Ian and (briefly) Stu – as well as the top 4 in the World – assembled to take on the 2017 Matchplay Masters, presented by the Aurora Curse.

Would the the upper atmospheric ionization effect finally loses its hold on the other Gents this year? Could the Aurora Curse be broken? Not if Felix and his stinky unwashed shirt (for extra luck) have anything to say about it……
