UPDATE: Weather warning forces change to Men’s County Finals format

The format for this year’s Men’s County Finals has been revised with heavy rain due to batter the Yorkshire venue on Sunday.

Kent, Nottinghamshire, Northumberland and Somerset are at Huddersfield GC ready to fight it out for the right to be hailed as county champions.

However, with rain forecast to sweep in on Saturday night and linger into Sunday morning, the Championship team has taken the sensible decision to pre-empt a problem with waterlogging.

Instead of a round-robin format featuring foursomes and singles matches across Friday, Saturday and Sunday the championship will now be played to a conclusion over just two days.

All four counties will still play each of their rivals, but the matches will now consist solely of seven singles games.

Each county will play one match on Friday and follow this up with matches two and three on Saturday morning and Saturday afternoon.
