Seniors Summer League 2018 - Week 1

summer icon 2018The Seniors Summer League got underway today, Monday 9th April,  with then Seniors playing eighteen holes in comparatively warm conditions.  The ground though was still damp.  The greens were cut this morning which made the greens a little bit faster.  Let's hope the sun shines and we gave a drying wind for a few days now.  Scoring was good as everybody was back on national handicaps for the start of the season  although just one Senior broke par to win by 5 points.  It was very close for place two to five. 

The winner with 40 Stableford points was Duncan Shiell who wins £4 but also sees his handicap slashed from 21 to 18 (2 for the score plus 1 more for winning).  In second place Steve Mather and Ray Johnson could only be separated on countback.  Steve had the better inward half of 20 points in his 35 so he took the second prize.  Pat Jubb and Tom Kerr both scored 34 points.

Duncan therefore heads the League after one event, with hopefully a long hot summer to come.

The positions after week 1 are as follows:

The figure in brackets after a golfer’s name indicates the handicap used to generate the Stableford score in the most recent week.

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 Tee markers are in place.  For 20178this means 9th April to approximately the end of October.  When Seniors Medals are played, the strokes are converted to Stableford scores using the current League handicap for the individual.  On other Mondays when neither a Stableford or a Medal is played then the League will not be updated.  Scores in the Texas Scramble planned for May  for example will not count towards the League.

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.
