Looks like the big 3 are Jonesy, Brattz & KevMc.

I'm going to think outside the box a bit here and go with the Housewives favourite TonyTim, closely followed by the Milkmans favourite Bubba.  The course should suit a skilled craftsman like Tony, plotting his way carefully round and a girly fade could come in handy on a few holes too...

Brattz topping the rest of the field in 3rd spot.

MvW topping the 'most balls lost' table :)

I would hope I can put in a claim for most balls lost on my maiden attempt! (anyone who's seen my performances at the southern event can vouch for that)

As for runners and riders, tony has kept his light under a bushel by missing out on the season opener so could well be the dark horse.

Bubba looks to have been a bit rusty in early season form but the spotlight being elsewhere will help him.

Certainly the consensus seems to be behind those with form in the tournament, handling the wild northern elements may well prove key, so I think any 3 from Kev, Jonesy, Tony and Bubba will be picking up the honours.

The house wife pick, the bookies favourite and the thinking man's golfers choice Bubba to win for sure

Let look at the rest fancied thus far
Jonesy and KevMc are both has bean's the Woosnam and Lyle of the field 
Bratz come with so much hot air Richard Branson is flying him in!!

What a bunch of half wits if you haven't picked Bubba, if he packs his putting boots and not his drinking boots it will be a land side!! 

ChrisM will loose the most balls FACT!!!!

See you all soon looking forward to the banter !! ;)

Cheers
Andy

Greetings...

Not sure who will win, as I have not been following form. Perhaps a new winner this year.

For me, I'm just hoping that CB's prediction for my lost ball 'win' is wrong! (Appreciate the support, mate, that'll cost you!)

Predictions:

- Brian G to make it to at least the 1st tee (& then possibly steal the long drive crown)

- Bar takings to be down due to the absence of our resident whisky sampler, the Bananaman!

- Kev to walk away with the most colourful/bizarre outfit, unchallenged due to Hursty not making it!

- Plenty of questionable banter & a few sherbets all round.
