Sign up to the event will open at 7.30pm and we will kick off at 9pm. Format will be decided on the night depending on numbers. All members who take part will be entered into the a random prize draw to win one of the above prizes.

The Matchplay Knockout Cup on the AG Tour is the big chance for the top players to grab a trophy, as there are no handicaps, so your skill is all that counts when you go head to head on the course. When the random draw was made, it looked like most of the top players were in the bottom half of the draw, which was going to make it tougher for those experienced players, but also provide the opportunity for one of the unfancied names to come through in the top half.

The first couple of rounds were played on an easy course, the Sleeping Giant, with most of the field receiving a bye on Round 1. In the only tie of the round one of the contenders on the Tour, Joe made an early exit, losing 3 and 1 to fallball80 . The American pulled off another impressive win in Round 2 as well, squeezing past Berty44 by the narrowest margin, 1 hole. Round 2 saw some big wins as the competition sorted the men from the boys, with comfortable margins for IDanger IMouse, RFC Buncey, Riverman, wellsa27, Red Rhinoceros and Tunners1.

The action switched over to the Hookenslice course for the quarter finals, but that didn't faze RFC Buncey who beat Riverman comfortable by 6 and 4. The favourite Red Rhinoceros also won by the same margin against Tunners1 in the other side of the draw, with the other victors being deareststorm who came through a very tight game against IDanger IMouse, and fallball80 who kept pulling off surprising wins by knocking out wellsa27 3 & 2 in a very competitive game.

We were down to the final four and the difficulty level of the courses was ramped up as the semi-finalists took on Pebble Beach. fallball80's run came to an end as he was beaten by the accurate play of Red Rhinoceros, going down 7 & 5. Unfortunately deareststorm didn't make it onto the course in time and RFC Buncey went through to the final, which no-one would've predicted at the start for a player that hadn't cut his teeth on the AG Tour like everyone else.

Calling all AbsoluteGaming members. We want your support. One of our members, Gingerneo will be hosting a gaming marathon with a few of his mates on the 24/25th of October in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. He will be playing mostly Fortnite, Destiny, Halo and Gears. There are 3 committed to the 24 hours challenge, but there will be space for people to drop in and out so if any of you wish to join in with the gaming, or jump into the party to keep them awake you'll be more than welcome.
