The top 16 of the league get through into the knockout. For each round the names are put into the hat and drawn. No seeding. The winners of each round will be put into a hat and drawn again. You won’t know who you’ll be facing until the final.
The top sixteen for the 2016 knockout played the first round on the 30th July. Drawing of the names was done that morning. 7 matches were played. Mel and Mick played their match on the 13th August.
The first two rounds of the quarter finals were played at Chichester. Mick Yates beat Jason Bowles 2 up, Herb Miller beat Mike Griffin 3 & 1. In the other two Matt Davies beat Dave Payne ( 2 & 1 ) at Southwick Park and, due to his non availability, Andy Banting awarded Stuart Hogg a bye.
The semi finals were played at Worldham. Matt beat Stuart 3 & 2, and Mick beat Herb on the 18th with his third birdie of the day.
Well done to Mick and Matt on reaching the final.
