Seniors Summer League 2018 - Updated to week 26 - 22nd October

summer icon 2018After 27 weeks of play, the 2018 Seniors Summer League has come to an end with Ray Johnson shrugging off his handicap cuts to record a win in the final event which took him back to the top of the League Table with 86.0 League pints, 2.5 clear of Pat Jubb in second place on 83.5.  Alec Lauder rose to third place overall on 80.0 point as a result of his 19 League points in the last two weeks of the season

It was difficult we were still playing in the Summer League this week as the temperature was just above freezing, winter greens were in play and the fog didn't lift until we had played at least ifteen holes.  For the first thirteen holes.  Up till that point, it was a bit of hit and hope.  You could get a line on the ball as it left the club, but there was little chance of seeing where it landed.  For the last few holes, the visibility was perfect.

Given the weather it was a pleasant surprise to have eighteen Seniors playing.  That's one of the best turnouts of the year.  Ray Johnson was playing off 7, 6 shots below the handicap he started the League with, but he managed to see off everyone else with a splendid 37 Stableford points. If the Summer League went on one more week, Ray would be playing off 5.    Alec Lauder took second place with 36 Stableford points.  Alec was playing 7 below the handicap at the start of the year.    Eddie Berridge too was playing 7 below his start handicap and he came third equal on the day with a 35, tying with Alister Mackenzie.

It's been an entertaining Summer League.  We had 27 events and the most prolific players were Pat Jubb who played 25 rounds, Tam Glendinning with 24 and Eddie Berridge on 23. Ray Johnson scored his points from 22 events.

Next week, the Winter League starts - winter tees and National handicaps, so look out for the Stableford 45s and above next week.

Forty seven Seniors played in the League, some only doing so when the Medal scores were converted to League scores.  Of those forty-seven, twenty eight saw their handicaps fall throughout the season as shown below:

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 ran on Monday mornings, 10am, when the Yellow Tee markers were in place.  For 2018 this meant 9th April to 29th October.  When Seniors Medals wereplayed, the strokeplay scores were 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 was not be updated. 

On week 1, League handicaps equalled 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.
