It was a lovely day for golf today. Sunny with not much breeze. It was a shame that I could not play due to a back problem.
We had 13 players taking part (after one late drop-out). With this number of players there were 4 prizes.
First place went to Brian D with a wonderful 42 points. Second place went to John Fl with a very good 40 points. Third place went to Mr President who claimed 39 points. However when we processed his card for handicap purposes we found out he only scored 38 points. Fourth place went to Nina with 38 points (who beat Jacqui on count back).
Also, well done to Hans O who also played better than his handicap scoring 37 points.
On Tuesdays we cannot guarantee checking all of the winners scores correctly by hand before we give out the prizes. So please can you check your card carefully if you have a good score.
We have processed the cards for handicap purposes. Of the 13 players taking part only 4 scored less than 30 points.
As mentioned above we had 6 players who played better than their handicaps. We also had 2 players scoring 36 points so they were in their buffer zone. The other 5 players got 0.1 back on their exact FGS handicap.
Having a quick look at the scoring on Master Scoreboard there were 3 birdies today on holes 6, 8 and 17. The hardest hole on the course was hole 14. However the average score on this hole was quite low at 6.82. Normally the hardest hole has an average score of more than 2 shots over par. Amazingly the easiest hole hole today was hole 8. It had an average score of 3.45. Less than 1/2 a shot over par.
