At a recent meeting of the Championship Working Group, which includes representatives of each of the 6 regions, a number of matters associated with the English Women’s County Finals was discussed.
Method of Resolving a Tie
Some of you will be aware at this year’s Midlands North County Match Week there was a tie between Lincolnshire and Staffordshire both in regards total number of Match Points and Game Points. The result of the match was tied between the two counties requiring the result to be drawn by lot, which Staffordshire won. It is the first time in 29 CMW’s since the change was made that drawing of lots has been required.
It has been agreed that from 2019 the following shall now apply:
The winning County shall be the County with the highest number of match points. In the event of a tie on match points, the result will be determined by (in order):
- total game points won
- match result between the tied counties
- result of the first singles game in the match between the tied counties. If the game is halved the second, third, fourth singles game etc will be used until a decision is found.
- Should there still not be a clear winner, the winner shall be drawn by lot.
Terms of Competition
3 Day Format
In 2018 the Midlands South region ran a very successful 3 day format in which a county played a team in the morning and afternoon in a shortened format (2xfoursomes, 3xsingles). A copy of the report is attached.
This is also being discussed by other regions for 2019 and will be adopted by the Midland North region.
In light of this change England Golf have agreed to amend the finals to the 3 day format from 2021. It is hoped the finals will also be played over a weekend but this will be confirmed in due course. The 5 day format will continue in 2019 and 2020 at Delamere Forest and Spalding Golf Clubs respectively.
