Seniors Medals - October Results and McKinnon Trophy!

medal 4The Seniors 9 and 18-hole October medals played on Monday 17th September completed the 2018 series of Seniors Monthly Medals and enabled us to calculate the winner of the Ian McKinnon Tropy for the best aggregate of four net scores in the 18-hole series.  The 18-hole medal was won by Ron Robertson with a superb 65, four shots ahead of Ray Johnson on 69 Dale Ploughman won the 9-hole medal. 

The McKinnon Trophy competition got much tighter and resulted in a win for Ray Johnson, but only by two shots from Ron Robertson who shot up the table from fifth place to second.  Ron dropped a 77 and replaced it with his 65 from the final medal, improving his four round total by 12 shots. Ray's 69 could only equal his fourth best score so his total remained unchanged after the final medal.  Ron  may well be rueing his 6 at the 8th in his 65, but congratulations to Ray for a very steady series of Medals throughout the year.  Ray' played all six medals and his highest score was a 70.

Full results of the two Medals together with the final standings in the McKinnon Trophy are shown below.  Forty-one Seniors played in at least one 18 hole medal year.  Eleven golfers played in the 9-hole Medals.  The figures include two Seniors who played at least one of each during the season, meaning that fifty different Seniros played a Medal this year.  .Thanks to everyone who competed.

September Medals

Birds of different feathers were to the fore in the Seniors September medals played on Wednesday 12th September as a result of adverse weather on the scheduled date of Monday 3rd September.  Ray Johnson scored the golfing eagle at the fifteenth when he holed his second shot from the fairway.  He then got a real birdie on the sixteenth where his ball struck a bird in flight.  Unfortunately the bird came off significantly worse than the ball.  Described variously as a house martin, swallow or swift, it is regrettably no longer with us.  Despite Ray's assortment of birds, he didn't win the Wednesday' 18 hole medal. Ray was second on 68

The winner was Colin Gibson with.67.  Third place could only be decided on countback.  Pat Jubb and Ron Robertson both returned 69s but Pat had the better inward half.  There were no handicap reductions, but a couple went up.

Turning to the 9-hole medal, we had a new name at the top this month when Michael McFarlane led the field home with 13 points.  Ken Richards took second place on 12 and Dale Ploughman came third on 11

The full results of the medals are listed below along with the updated standings in the McKinnon Trophy for the best four scores in Seniors 18 hole medals.  With just the October medal to come (next Monday 17th September), Ray Johnson has a very clear lead, although Eddie Berridge could top the table at the end if he has a 64 or better on Monday and Ray fails to improve on a 68.  For anyone outside these two to win would require someone to shoot 59 or better.  The McKinnon Trophy standings after the September medal are also listed below

The impact of these scores on the Seniors Summer league can be found elsewhere on the website

August Medals

The Seniors August Medals (9 and 18 holes) were played on Monday 6th August.  Apologies for the delay in publishing the results on the website, but they have been available on How Did I Do since Tuesday.  Congratulations to Jock Henderson and John Biggar for winning the 18 hole and 9 hole competitions respectively.  Jock's net 63 put him one shot ahead of Ron Robertson who was a further one shot ahead of John LawJohn took third place on countback fro Ray Johnson who finished fourth.

 In the 9 Hole event, John Biggar recorded his third successive win, with 17 points which put him three points clear of Joe Hannaford, Stewart Paterson and Bill Henderson who all recorded 14 points.  Countback determined that Joe was second and Stewart third.

Prize money for the Medals is behind the bar.

The August medals were the fourth of the Seniors Series for 2018 and gives us an opportunity to report on McKinnon Trophy standings.  The McKinnon Trophy is awarded at the end of the season to the Senior who has the best aggregate of four net scores across the18 hole Medals series.  At this point we just look at the aggregate of best three scores from four.

The detailed results below show the August 18 hole results followed by the 9 hole results and then the McKinnon Trophy.  All previous medal results for 2018 can be found on the How Did I Do website.

In the McKinnon Trophy, two Seniors are currently 7 or 8 shots clear of the pack.  Ray Johnson has been very consistent without winning a medal and leads on 198 (65, 65, 68) while Eddie Berridge has had two wins included in his 199 (64, 67,68).  John Law holds third place at the moment..

There are two more Medals left this year - September and October.  Both will be played in September (3rd and 17th).  The October Medal is played early to be completed before the greens are verti-drained on 24th September.

Positions will change over the last two Medals and we look at the best four.  At the moment, Ray has a good fourth score of 70  already, while Eddie needs to improve on his 83.

The results from the August Medal will be converted to Seniors Summer League scores using League Handicaps later today and the updated Summer League positions will be posted before Round 18 on Monday.
