I haven't got any left, i only had those that were pre-ordered sent through to me.

I do believe they've nearly all gone, but you can check with our friends at http://www.twistedflyer.com/proshop/ but be quick.

Senility must be setting in as you get on in your years Tim. I told you when I gave you the discs that I had not put peoples Certificates in because there is info on there that needs to be filled in by the TD.

Thanks for all the compliments on the packing guys. It was fun!! :D
Frolf it up!!!!

So, anyone getting twitchy yet?

I made the mistake of looking through the players list... there's all of 5 Open players with worse ratings than me... :shock: :?

Wouldn't say i was twitchy but looking forward to looking after everyone, final preparations are under way and all is looking hunky dory :D

Lets see Bruce's rating is 952, don't worry Bruce you'll only be a couple of strokes off the average rating for the field :twisted: the average rating based upon the 32 players who have ratings is 975.9 a damn strong field and anyones guess as who will take the booty home with them, anyone care to make some predictions for the divisions?

Top 10 for British Open

Post by Del » Thu Mar 01, 2007 10:42 pm

Tim asks for predictions on who will take home the booty. My prediction for top 10 in the Open division is Timo Pursio, Anders Sward, Linus Astrom, Christian Sandstrom, Fernando Brown, Emil Isaksson. Kai Vesa, Tommi Vesala, Ville Pippo.

Surely the big wagers should be on whether Bruce (952) can beat Burl (950) :?:

I think Del has the open division quite well read, although there are a few dark horses registered as well, whatever it will be a very close fought race, just what we want.

Okay, i'll start taking wagers on the first 54 holes, will Bruce beat Burl or vice versa :lol: my moneys on Burl :wink:

So what about the Masters division, another tight field...

For me, well i've gotta root for the locals, Fernando Open, Rick Masters, Sophie Women, and i don't mind with Am as long as Essex get a clean sweep...

For Masters I'll go with Martin Frederiksen, he was the class act of last years Masters. Martin, Christer, Rick and Del as finalists.

Womens could be tight between Burl and Birgitta. Angelica and Lydie to round out the final.

You're probably right about the locals in Am; Paul, Ross, Michiel and Andy C to be the finalists, though Heavy T might have a say.

I've unfortunately had to withdraw from the Open. Does anyone need or know anyone who needs accommodation? Two nights B&B (Friday and Saturday) in the very nice tournament hotel, the Wivenhoe House Hotel, right on the course and rooming with the BDGA National Director Bruce Webber no less. £84
