Seniors Summer League - Week 18!

summer league After last week's low turnout we had a bumper event this week (21st August) when four 4-balls and a 3-ball played in warm conditions.  The course was played with the 3rd at 150 yards.  The scores though have been calculated with the 3rd as a par 4.  This has the effect of increasing players' Stableford scores by 1 if the marker treated it a par 3.  Whether it is a par 3 or 4 doesn't affect the relative positions of players, nor on this occasion has it affected the handicap adjustments as Eric English's handicap would have come down by 2 even if his score was 37 and not 38

Eric's League handicap comes down 1 for 37 / 38 and a further 1 for winning.

There was a four way tie for second with Neil Richardson, Ray Johnson, Pim McDonnell and Tam Glendinning all scoring 36 points.  Neil took the second prize on countback.  There was another four way tie for sixth on 32 and a three way tie for tenth  on 31   As a result, twelve Seniors scored League points this week all the players who tied for tenth place only earn 0.33 points each The individual Stableford scores for both 14th August can be found below the League table.

Neither of the previous three eaders of the overall League table scored points this week. Leader Alister Legge played but his 31 didn't generate enough points to replace his tenth best score to date, John Lunn didn't play.  Alister and John though do retain first and second places overall on 67.5 and 61.0. Duncan Shiell could only return a 30 which was not enough to score League points and he drops from third to fifth.

Pim McDonnell moves up to third on 60.5 with Tam Glendinning holding on to fourth with an increased score of 59.5

Next week will be again be  standard League event.  All Seniors are very welcome and should be in the Changing Room by 9:45am for a 10:00am start. 

Please note that as the Greens are likely to be hollow tined on Monday 25th September, Seniors voted to move the October the Monday 18th September rather than Monday 2nd October.  That date is now reflected in the online Competitions, online diary and the online Calendar

The overall League table after 19 weeks is shown below.  Further below are the results of Week 19 alone.

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.
