2009 BMGA British Matchplay Championships

The First Round draw of the 2009 BMGA British Matchplay Championships took place at the BMGA’s HQ in Kent this evening and I was drawn to play against Phil Exall of Tunbridge Wells.

In last years contest I was defeated by Phil's brother Andy Exall in a first round match played at Southend's Adventure Island Course on the 29th March 2008. I finished the inaugural BMGA British Matchplay Championships in 26th place of 29 players.

The 2008 champion was Tim ‘Ace Man’ Davies who defeated Andy ‘Number 2’ Exall 5&4 on the Hastings Seafront Crazy Golf course to lift the title. In the 2008 third/fourth place play-off match Trevor ‘Pumbah’ Exall defeated Kevin ‘Legendus Maximus’ Botto 1up to take the final podium place.

This year the tournament contains 32 players and I'll be looking to do a lot better than in 2008!

The full first round draw is as follows:
1. Cindy Kukielka vs Matthew Harding
2. Chris Jones vs Kevin Botto
3. James Trubridge vs Peter Emmerson
4. Elliott Ward vs Andy Exall
5. Anthony Pope vs Matt Wood

12. Trevor Robertson vs Martin Robertson
13. John Moore vs Den Exall
14. Brad Shepherd vs Marion Homer
