Seniors Winter League - Week 5 - 4th December

woolly hatA total of sixteen different Seniors have played one or more rounds of the Seniors Winter League so far this season and fourteen of them took to the course on Monday.  A full round was played to normal greens as the winds continue to dry out the course.  Eddie Berridge is moving into one of hist purple patches.  He had a good round in the Turkey Trot and led the field in the League.  Eddie shot a Stableford score of 37 to finish one ahead of three Seniors on 36.   Eddie's handicap falls by 2 to 23.

After countback, it was John Duncan who took the second prize.  Pat Jubb and John Lunn also scored 36.  There were some very good back 9 scores by Jon, Pat and John.  It was John Duncan's 20 that beet two 19s.  Eleven players scored League points this week as 9th, 10th and 11th places all had 29 points.

At the top of the League table, Tam Glendinning retains his lead but the gap has been cut to two points.  Tam is on 30.0 points with John Lunn moving into second on 28.0  Pat Jubb also moves up significantly to third place on 23.5

Remember, at Minto, any Senior who has reached their 55th birthday is a Senior and is welcome to play with all the Seniors who congregate in the Clubhouse on Monday at 9:45 ready for a prompt 10am start.  Partners are decided by a draw so it's a great opportunity to play with many different Seniors over the course of a season.

Thanks to everyone who supported the Turkey Trot yesterday.  There is a full report and pictures of the Trot elsewhere on the website.

Next Monday is a standard Winter League day.  All Seniors are welcome at 9:45 for a 10:00am tee-off.  Meet in the Changing Rooms.

The full results from Week 5 alone of the Winter League are given below the League Table

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 Winter League runs on Monday mornings, 10am, when the Winter Tee markers are in place.  For 2017 this means 23 October to approximately the end of March. 

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.
