Fresh off the heels of @BaxterMSP 's announcement of the Midwest “Ope”-In Championship that will be taking place next August 20/21 at The Golf Courses of Lawsonia, @Mwilhelm10 and I are here to announce the Nebraska Qualifier for that Championship event!
For more info on the Midwest “Ope”-In Championship, refer to the link below:
With that being said, we are going to be having a Match Play bracket tournament that will commence in the spring of 2021. The exact start date is still TBD, but @Mwilhelm10 and I will put together a bracket based on the number of individuals that sign up for the qualifier. As of now, we have a signup sheet that has spots for 24 individuals. However if the interest is there, and we have a wait list that allows up to have 32 spots, then we will go with that amount!
We will match up individuals based on location, that way scheduling each match is as easy as possible. Match play will incorporate the use of Course Handicap, to make it as fair as possible regardless of your individual handicap.
As of now, the semi-finals and finals will take place at Firethorn Golf Club in Lincoln and Omaha Country Club, respectively.
The two finalists will be our team representative for Nebraska a the Midwest “Ope”-In Championship next August 20/21 at The Golf Courses of Lawsonia in Wisconsin.
Sign up sheet is below!
When signing up, please keep in mind your ability to represent our great state in the Championship next August! Obviously, none of us know what next August is going to look like with the pandemic, etc… However, if you make it to the finals, and are unable to attend, we will go down the list to the next person available. @Mwilhelm10 and I will come up with the determining factors to decide who will represent Nebraska in the Championship, in the event that any of the two finalists cannot make the Championship in Wisconsin.
Thanks all! Keep in mind that this is the very early stages and definitely fluid, but we wanted to get an idea of who may want to participate in this. We welcome any ideas and suggestions that you may have!
Mark & Mike
