The first game, at Aguilon golf course in a stun­ning moun­tain lo­ca­tion, was a dif­fi­cult in­tro­duc­tion as nu­mer­ous gul­lies and wa­ter haz­ards com­bined to at­tract stray golf balls.

Be­fore the start, 16 play­ers were asked to pre­dict the to­tal num­ber of balls lost dur­ing the round and ev­ery­one chose on the low side with the win­ner pre­dict­ing 59 balls when the ac­tual was 78 balls.

De­spite dire warn­ings from Lawrence Wanty that the sec­ond course at Lorca Golf Club was­more dif­fi­cult, the sweep es­ti­mates were still on the low side.

The ravines were much more nu­mer­ous and wider, which did not help the shorter hit­ting mem­bers. De­spite scor­ing be­ing markedly bet­ter, a to­tal of 109 balls were lost, by 17 play­ers, with the win­ner of the sweep pre­dict­ing 90.
