One typo for me to correct, The White House is par 4, not 3.

On Friday will anyone be about on the course? I'm turning up sometime early afternoon ish and would love to play the course with someone who knows it?
And As I'm staying in the scout hut, from what sort of time is it open? As I'm probably being dropped off and don't fancy carrying everything round the course..
Cheers
I'm Passing Brum area on my way down on Friday morning in a large car on my own (M54,M6,M42,M40) . I'm also travelling back that way on the Sunday after the event. Possible lifts needed to ease my fuel bill? :o

Same applies to any others on my route, so long as it's not that far off track.

Top field question, what defines the OB line you must cross on hole 7? I'm guessing you're not roping that entire OB boundary!

Cheers for the offer Steve, and I would take you up on it except that my Dad (this will make me sound much younger than I am!) Is giving me a lift both ways and staying with my Sister in Lingfield in between.
I may not be in the scout hut Friday night after all, as I've been offered a bed in Lingfield and a lift back to Lloyd Park in the morning. I will still be over for a practice on Friday afternoon though, just with a pensioner in tow who wants to see what this strange thing called disc golf is.

I'd imagine it'll be similar to last year, a painted line with some visual markers.

Is there going to be any CTPs or longest drives?

Thanks, does it follow the existing path that runs up the field?

That's correct, the OB line is the same as last year, running along the line of the path up the field. The point where the path forks (shown by the position of the cursor) and a small path goes off to the left is the location of the drop zone.

Final results and provisional round ratings:

http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/79389

(NB - I don't think it has registered the revised par for the final (31), so some of the 'To Par' scores look a bit ridiculous)

Results:

Open:
1 - Jester Wilson (after two play-off holes)
2 - Derek Robins
3 - Chris O'Brien

Advanced Amateur:
1 - Jon Tweed (after three play-off holes)
2 - Tom Lowes
3 - Fran Wilson

Intermediate Amateur:
1 - Simon Edwards
2 - Paul McCullough
3 - Matt Parslow

Pretty much shocking weather all day, but after lunch it was particularly horrible. All the finalists battled gamely with numb fingers, treacherously slippery discs and tee-pads, and howling winds. Both the Open and Adv Am finals were incredibly close, with the lead changing hands several times.

Thanks to all who came and contributed to another great Cyclone!

It was a great weekend, thanks to all involved for a really enjoyable introduction to tournament play.
Met lots of people, got to sit round a campfire, played well and terribly on nearly every hole. Sorted.
I didn't realise how wet I was today till I stopped playing, the two 2's I got in the final round probably helped in distracting me from the weather.
Congrats to Tweedy for seeing off the Croydonites in the ad am final, when I gave up watching the final the weather was miserable and everyone was soaked and cold, and that was only 4 holes in.. To play the 9 than 3 playoffs was heroic (or foolhardy......!)
I look forward to playing in Croydon again, hopefully in the second leg of the hyzer cup?
Cheers

My own personal congratulations to Jon Tweed for his victory. He held it together so impressively in the awful conditions today, posting the best Adv Am score of the morning to steal into 1st place in the final, then after a horrible start to his final never gave up to the finish. Every time I thought I had him, he made another nerveless pressure putt to stay in the running.

Also props to his QP support crew, following the final despite the dismal conditions to negate the Croydon contingent!
