Welcome all Wisconsin refugees that were
crazy kind enough to sign up for little matchplay event.
What’s at stake? Two (2) spots in the Midwest "Ope"n at Lawsonia to be held on August 20th and 21st.
Who? All the Wisconsinites who have signed up.
What’s the timeline? You’re benevolent leader asks that you do your best to stick to this schedule. Anybody who can’t make it work (within reason) will be decided on a case by case basis.
- Play in rounds by end of April to get people time to get courses open
- Second round by May 15th
- Third round by June 6th
- Fourth by the end of July 4th weekend
- Semis by end of July
- We then have up to the “Ope”n for the final to crown the champ. (the final 2 will represent Wisconsin in the "Ope"n)
All players will be responsible for coordinating their own matches, having other matches happen with yours is welcomed if that works for all. Should any events come up where a large group will be together, let the organizer know that you want to be paired for matches.
Now, for the bracket. Because of the turnout, we will have some play in matches. I did my best to keep people as local as possible early in the game, but know that there will be some travel earlier for those who aren’t in the Madison and Milwaukee markets. The expectation is that people do their best to find a workable option for both parties and not to make somebody drive all the way across the state for a round of golf.
If they want to do that, that’s on them.
You guys are up first for the play in rounds. I will also send messages out to each group for the kickoff of this. If somebody can’t get in contact with your person, PLEASE let me know. We will make a team effort to get them to respond, but if they don’t, congrats, you get a free pass to the next round.
