Seniors Summer League - Week 11!

summer leagueThe week 10 story wasn't up for very long this morning, Monday 26th June,  before we played the week 11 round of the League.  The calm but slightly cool weather tempted twenty Seniors onto the Course.  The conditions favoured good scoring and we got that with four Seniors breaking net par.  However no one came close to matching Colin Gibson who recorded a superb 45 stableford points.   In second place on a mere 39 points was Duncan Shiell Pim McDonnell on 38 and Norman Howitt on 37 competed the quartet breaking par.

Golfers needed 33 stableford points or more this week to score any league points.  It's been a while where that level of scoring was required.

Once more we have a change at the top of the League table as Alister Legge assumes the top spot for the first time.  Alister has a total of 46.0 points putting him one point clear of Tam Glendinning who didn't play this week.  John Lunn drops to third and stays on 40.0 points, while Duncan Shiell enters the top four on 35.5  We are only 11 weeks into a possible 28 to 30 weeks of the full season so there is plenty of scope for further changes at the top.

Next week is a Seniors Medal where we convert Strokeplay scores to Stableford points using current League handicaps.  the medal, of course, is played off national handicaps..   Entries for the medal can be made now.

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 tees are in place.  For 2017 this means 10th April to approximately the end of October, beginning of November.  When Mondays coincide with a Seniors Medal, 18 hole stroke play scores will be converted to Stableford and League scores using current League handicaps.  There will be a couple of weeks when the league coincides with a Home team match at Minto.  In those weeks the league can still be played as long as seven Seniors are available for play.  If less than seven, Seniors not in the match should still play.  When a Home Match day coincides with a League day, we would ask that League players start at 09;30 rather than 10:00.

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. In previous years, League handicaps have stayed the same or gone down only..  There has been no provision for handicaps to rise. Perhaps there should be, to even up any handicap anomalies; see below

League handicaps are completely independent of National Handicaps which remain unchanged throughout.  The aim of adjusting handicaps is to spread the prize money around, ensure everyone has an equal chance of winning and provide close competition throughout the Series as well as providing a pleasant round of golf.
