The short 11th at Tasmania GC. Into the wind every time.

The 2018 MM got off to a slow and wet start, with defending champ Basil struggling to find anyone brave enough to play him, Leroy pinging a hammy, and then a huge storm knocking out Kingston Beach Golf Course for a month or two – which meant that three time Champ Felix stayed in the sheds til June.

It also saw the introduction of the new Fairness in Handicapping initiative, which will allow for greater competitiveness from the high handicappers, and hopefully see them snagging their first Majors soon.

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.

What remains is worth a read for the many thousands of GWT scholars out there, and for the players themselves to relive some of the old matches that have probably been forgotten.

IMG_0542

Hi all, this is going to be short and sweet report, course correspondent Cravo took some snaps.

Matt declined a lift at 6:45 because he wanted to get there early, Gaz wondered why Matt wanted to borrow his tent, so we can surmise that Matt was on course from 4pm the day before 😉
