European Longdrive Championship 2016
« on: August 11, 2016, 04:50:54 PM »
So we have great news!
September 17th we will host ELDC at Orresta GC and the Open division winner this year will be awarded a place, in association with Golfchannel, at this years World Longdrive Championship! Into the field of 80.

It will be 3 divisions, Open, Senior 40+ and Supersenior 48+.
Entry fee is 500SEK or 55 Euro PLUS 100SEK or 10 Euro extra to pay for competition balls. So total 600SEK or 65 Euro.

This is about the honor and it will not be a lot of money, just entry fees. Not a big fancy event but a players event as we need an ELDC.
We start at 9:00 in the morning.
Format is 2x8balls reducing field to 16/8/4 and Semifinal matchplay seeded by distance. Each division is run to completion upon starting.

Please let me or Tony know if you will compete. Nothing binding but we need a rough estimate on who is coming.

We will also host ELDC in 2017 but more info about that will come during the winter.

All results from every round are posted on AP's FB page.

Scott "The European Hope" Beaven won the open
Kari Hyökki won the seniors (+40)
Johan Tumba won the super seniors (+48)

I hope I got it right.

Anyone have the distances in the final between Beaven and Lindbergh?  The FB pictures are cut off.

Thanks,

JD
