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.
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.
Which Gent has a winning record against three-time Champ, Felix? Who has Ian owned on the way to his two MM Titles? Who is officially a nemesis? And who’s a bunny? Get your grudge on and find out!
last updated end of 2017
Felix 3.5 Basil 2.5
Felix (with signature yellow ball) – in a bad spot at Pittwater GC in the 2016 MM RR. Not a problem for the MM Master – he almost halved the hole anyway!
Here’s all the action from the qualifying rounds of the 2016 Matchplay Masters….
The founding members of the Lost Bougle tradition (Felix, Bas and the 2 Leighs) travelled to Bridport in late April 2017 to contest the 2016/17 Edition. Ian, Keithy, Dr Gaz, Matt and Mr Sexy all missed – absent either due to being buried under children; bushwalking and marathon running; or too busy chasing hotties and great waves.
Could the Bougle Master, Leroy go back-to-back and claim his 4th Bougle from 7 starts? Would Cravo make amends for his massive choke last year? Would Felix just make everyone else look silly with an easy cakewalk victory? Bas would finish 1st or 2nd (never any worse than that), but would it be winner or runner-up?
