Seniors Winter League - Week 9 - 15th January

woolly hatThe weather was fairly evil between 9am and 9:30am in most of the Bordersthis morning so it's fairly understandable that numbers playing the Seniors Winter League were down today.  However from 9:30 to 1;30, it was drty and often sunny such that no one who played got wet. The ground though was a bit heavy and that impacted on the scores.  Seven golfers is enough for a valid League event and it was tight at the top.

The course was played to normal greens and Stephen Mather coped best scoring 33 Stableford points, just one clear of Bill Innes and Pat Jubb on 32.  Countback gave Bill the second prize of a massive £2.  Stephen Mather took the £4 top prize and had his handicap cut by one for winning.  Stephen will be off 17 next week.

Pat Jubb climbed to the top of League table knocking Norman Howitt down to second.  Pat is on 51.5 with Norman on 48.5Tam Glendinning who didn't play this week retains third place on 42.5John Lunn rises two places to fourth.

Partners are decided by a draw so it's a great opportunity to play with many different Seniors over the course of a season.

Monda y22nd January is a standard Winter League day.  All Seniors are welcome at 9:45 for a 10:00am tee-off.  Meet in the Changing Rooms.

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.
