Liam O Top spreadsheeting man, respect!

Dave Kempshall Love a spreadsheet, but my skills are primitive compared with Mr Robjohns.

Liam O

Liam O I can't imagine how good they are. The 'hyper nasty numbers' will be ugly. I hope the scoring system will be a leveller of some sort hint hint :)

Dave Kempshall

Dave Kempshall The scoring will be a lot simpler than previous number tournament rounds. I'm interested to see how people get on on that round as I try and devise rounds that replicate a real golf tournament in terms of scoring.

Liam O Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Be nice to have Matthew T as a caddy for that round.

Ian Volante

Ian Volante I suppose there's an element of luck which is difficult to avoid. A low max game makes it very tough to compete.

Dave Kempshall

Dave Kempshall Indeed Ian, I quite like that element though. It's quite reflective of real golf. Think of a low max as having to negotiate around the course when you know you're not firing on all cyclinders.

Dave Kempshall And, as we are consistently told by football pundits and managers - luck is supposed to even itself up over time.

Notes from the organizer: *** NEW SIGN-UPS WELCOME ***

Augusta, Georgia. Arguably golf's most iconic venue (certainly my personal favourite).

The course is a vivid green and perfectly manicured. The azaleas are in full bloom. Rae’s Creek lurks and the patrons are gathering in their droves. It can only mean one thing. The Masters.

We - once again - will be playing to golf scoring and as it’s a major, we’ll be playing round by round, with three days allocated to each round.

With simpler scoring, Augusta is - as always - very much about avoiding those very costly stray shots. Plodding your way around the course, whilst taking risks at the right time can see you stay in touch with what promises to be a well bunched leading group.

The bookies make T-Cap a marginal favourite ahead of Dave Robjohns with in-form Dan Byron and Chris Hare and many others also tipped to challenge. Who will pull on the coveted green jacket and join Bradley Horrocks (2022 winner) in The Masters Hall of Fame.

With 1000 ranking points on offer for the winner, any of the top 9 ranked players have the chance of shooting up to world no.1 with a win.

Masters Scoreboard -

Onto the golf, and you'll face a series of attacks (three letters and one numbers) and, as we’re playing to par, these are all against Prune.

Round 1 - Standard Letters Attack

We start with a standard letters attack.

9 letter word = Eagle
8 letter word = Birdie
7 letter word = Par
6 letter word = Bogey
5 letter word = Double Bogey
4 letter word or worse = Triple Bogey

* A reminder that only the first 18 rounds of your game count towards you golf 'round'.

Best of luck!

Ran from: 3 – 5 April 2024. Format: Letters Attack. Matches: One-off. Approved.
