Seniors Summer League 2018 - Updated to week 24 - 8th October

summer icon 2018A lot has happened in the Seniors Summer League since I last updated the website story.  We have had three additional events - one on 17th September in conjunction with the Seniors October Medal and two standard events on 1st and 8th October.  We missed 24th September when the greens were being cored.  Looking at the top of the table, it remains as tight as it did on 12th September.  The same two names are at the top, both have increased their points score but they remain separated by a whisker. 

The three individual winners in weeks 22,23 and 24 were Davy Wear (36 Stableford Points), Pat Jubb (40) and Ray Johnson (33).  Unfortunateky when a League day coincides with a Medal Day all the prixe money goes to the Medal places.

Back on 12th September Pat Jubb and Ray Johnston were at the top of the table on 76.5 points each, separated only by Pat's best week's point of 9.5 to Ray's best of 9.0.  Neither had  won a weekly competition at the point.  Taking the last three competitions into account and seeing the effect on their best ten league points scores to date, both have moved on to 80.5 points.  Also, both now have a 10.0 point win under their belts,so Pat's 9.5 is now his second best score still just keeping him ahead of Ray's 9.0.  If I'd put up the table last week, Pat would have had a clear points lead, but Ray's win yesterday (8th October) has changed that

Next week it will be a standard event.  It's difficult to say exactly when the League will end.  The clock's going back is usually the time, but last year the Yellow tees stayed out for a bit so we decided to run the Summer League in 2018 until the winter tees were in play.  A lot depends on the weather.  The forecast for this weekend is currently awful, but we have seen some heavy rain forecasts have come to nothing earlier on this year so we will just have to wait and see.

In any event it will remain very tight at the top.  To advance, Pat needs to be in the top 3  places in any week while Ray has to in the top 2 or be tied for third as Pat's tenth best points score to date is 6.5 and Ray's is 7.  If the League goes on for  at least two weeks more then current third and fourth placed golfers Duncan Shiell and Alec Lauder  have mathematical chances of winning the League but little realistic chance.  Eddie Berridge will need three wins without Pat or Ray scoring.to get to the top.

The full table is shown below, together will all the handicap changes this year.  There have been quite a few League handicap reductions as a result of the last four weeks scores. Finally the results of yesterday's event alone are shown at the end of the article.

The figure in brackets after a golfer’s name indicates the handicap used to generate the Stableford score in the most recent week.

Results are sorted by Total, (highest to lowest), then by number of scores counting to the total (Lowest to highest), then by Mondays played (lowest to highest) and finally by Christian Name if still a tie.

The Summer League runs on Monday mornings, 10am, when the Yellow Tee markers are in place.  For 2018 this means 9th April to approximately the end of October.  When Seniors Medals are played, the strokes are converted to Stableford scores using the current League handicap for the individual.  On other Mondays when neither a Stableford or a Medal is played then the League will not be updated.  Scores in the Texas Scramble planned for May  for example will not count towards the League.

On week 1, League handicaps equal National Handicaps.   For individual Stableford scores in excess of 36 any week [or 2*n when n holes are played],  the player’s  League handicap is cut by 1 for every 2 points or part thereof over 36, i.e. 37 / 38 incurs a cut of 1, 39 /40 incurs a cut of 2 etc.  In addition the week’s winner has his handicap cut by a further 1.  League handicaps only stay the same or go down.  There is no provision for handicaps to rise.  League handicaps are completely independent of National Handicaps which remain unchanged throughout.  The aim is to spread the prize money around and provide close competition throughout the Series.
