We also comprehensively evaluated the condition of the site and thought that it is possible to complete the 72 holes.Feng Liyuan explained.Due to heavy rain and limited sunshine time, the game was suspended four times, and four rounds of the match required three consecutive rounds.After a long and exhausting rain battle, the first Hangzhou International Championships completed four rounds of 72 holes as scheduled last Sunday.The first Hangzhou International Golf Championship is a mixed men’s and women’s professional individual and team competition jointly organized by men’s and women’s cruisers.Professional men and women from domestic and international players have also established a team bonus for men and women in individual stroke play, that is, the respective achievements of the two teams can affect the other party’s bonus income.In this form of competition, the Hangzhou International Golf Championship is the first of its kind in China (700,000 yuan for men’s individual games, 500,000 yuan for women’s individual games, and 300,000 yuan for men’s and women’s team games).Feng Liyuan and the referee team.Figure / Women’s Chinese Tour In October last year, during the Buick LPGA Championship, Zhang Xiaoning, President of the China Golf Association, met with the leaders of the Hangzhou Sports Bureau.Zhang Xiaoning suggested to Hangzhou that in order to run the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games golf project, it is necessary to prepare in advance. It is best to hold a game from 2019.It was originally a test match for the Hangzhou Asian Games in 2022. In the process of multi-party decision-making, the Secretary General of the Chinese High School Association Pang Zheng changed the combination of the men’s and the women’s tour, together with the team competition system, the interaction between men and womenIt is innovation, and it can also add one game to each of the two tournaments.”Hangzhou is relatively strong in innovative ideas in domestic cities, and has a strong ability to accept new things.In the golf project, they first took this step and made national innovations. I think this is a very good attempt.Said Feng Liyuan.The implementation plan was pushed down countless times to rebuild the first ten days after the Spring Festival. The first day after the Spring Festival, the men ‘s middle patrol office, the Chinese High School Association, the men ‘s middle patrol and the women ‘s middle patrol related leaders for the first time to discuss the competitionThe original guidelines.In the later period, various plans were formulated for various details, which were continuously overthrown, revised, and gradually improved.It was not until early July that the implementation plan was formally finalized before the competition opened for registration.First of all, in order to provide more opportunities for players and improve the international level and attention of the tournament, the team decided to adopt the highest score of the international golf tournament-156 people, 78 men and women; then it is the number of promotion, initially draftedEntering 50 people, but considering that a part of the 100 people may not be able to finish the game once encountering uncertain factors, after many discussions, it was finally decided to promote 80 people, 40 men and women.”Everyone decides, 80 people are more suitable.Kick-off at both ends and ten teams on each side, so that they will not insert into each other and will be more comfortable to play.Feng Liyuan explained.Players playing in the rain.Figure / Women ‘s Tour on the distribution of prizes for individual strokes, the men ‘s and women ‘s tournaments are also considered from their respective starting points, and there are differences.In the women ‘s individual stroke match, the total prize money is 500,000, and the top 50 everyone is divided into prizes. Although 41 to 50 players missed the next two rounds of competition, the amount of prize money they received was included in the tour year-end prize list.”This pair of players claims to be very successful, because the year-end bonus ranking determines how many games you can play next year and can participate in the competition first.On the men’s side, the top 60 is allocated 700,000. However, for fair consideration of men, the prizes won by the 41st to 60th unqualified players cannot be counted in the prize list.The longest discussed one is the pairing of the last two rounds of men ‘s and women ‘s team matches.The initial “best match with the worst”, “best match with the best”, “worst match with the worst” were gradually rejected, and later the men and women’s tournaments compared the nationalities of the participating athletes.There are many players in a country and region, and finally decided to take the country and region as the unit.”The two tournaments are very international. We are thinking about the country as a unit. The kind of national pride, national honor, and the collision of men and women are all very interesting points.Said Feng Liyuan.After the two rounds, the top 40 male and female players who have been promoted are converted into a serial number of 1 to 40 according to their results. Male 1 is allocated to the same country or region and the best female player; then the unappointed female 1 is allocated to the same country or regionThe best male player.With such cross-matching, players who do not match successfully will form the international team in the same way.The staff is broadcasting the game.Figure / Women’s China Tour will narrow down the participants next year through four rounds of difficult rain battles, and the Hangzhou International Golf Championship finally ended on Sunday afternoon as scheduled.Zhang Weiwei won the women’s individual championship with a total score of 14; Chao Haimeng won the men’s individual championship with a loss of 6; and the men’s and women’s team championship was included in the “Thailand combination”-Prima and Sutipa.No one has a view of the playing field in the rain.From the perspective of the final results of the game, Feng Liyuan believes that it is consistent with his pre-match expectations, but in the future, there is room for improvement in the game. “In the first year of the game, the development time is relatively tight.The schedule for the men ‘s and women ‘s tournaments can only be set on the last week of August when neither party has a match.Next year I hope that the game will not be placed at this time, too hot and rainy.”In addition, Feng Liyuan also proposed to reduce the number of participants, but also hoped that more players can participate in the competition if sunshine permits.””If the game is scheduled for the end of October or the beginning of November, 108 or 120 people are ideal.In the most beautiful season in Hangzhou, the forests are full of colors, and the autumn colors are all in my sight. This is what I expected.”Sauna, Night Net Editor Deng Hanyu Zhang Yunfeng proofreading Li Lijun
