Three teams of three took to the Princes course for a Texas Scramble. A fine time was had by all, enjoying the absence of rain and wind chill. One team stood head and shoulders above the rest. Congratulations to Sheena, Jane F and Deborah who scored gross 74, net 64. The other teams trailed behind on net 68 and net 69. Sheena continues her winning streak in the Winter team events being on the winning side for the last 3 months. With just one team event to go the ladies are all angling for a spot on Team Sheena!
A big field battled away on a muddy Prince's course. The stars were clearly aligned for Damian Hackett. It was his 55th birthday today, his beloved New England Patriots, aka cheaters (Spygate, Deflategate), and rugby team won this weekend. Truth be told he did play an excellent round of golf: 36 gross on the front 9 (2 birdies) and 34 on the way in. End result: 70 gross (60 net). Things could even have been better had he not raced his eagle putt past the cup on the 9th (he did 3-putt to make a par ...). Damian's new handicap now stands at 9.0 and he's set up himself up for an ESR. Martin Heinrich deservedly finishes 2nd thanks to a wonderful 82 (63 net). Mike Shabani had an excellent front 9 (36 gross) but struggled a bit on the way in. A score of 76 (64 net) earns him 3rd place today. Phil Flanagan, Paul House and Scott Sparks complete the Top6.
A long list of new handicaps. Please take note of your new handicap.
Whilst muddy underfoot, the sun surprisingly endured. With little wind, conditions were positively spring-like.
Some good scores resulted and it was tight at the top. Michael Choo emerged winner on 39 points - having only dropped two shot through 10th. Richard Owen finished 2nd with 38 whilst Meesrs. House, Rivers, Cepeda and Mason returned 37s.
In the associated Duke's Eclectic Michael is 1/2 a shot clear from John Curry on 66.0.
In the 3rd round of the associated Winter Competition Brett Colley shares the lead with John Curry on 103 points.
Report due soon.
In the associated Eclectic report due soon.
A raw, biting nor'easter persisted through the day mitigated by weak winter sunshine; the going was soft - heavy in places.
Not surprising that CSS was reduced by two from SSS 36 to 34. Some players mastered the conditions so congrats to the winner Danny Deprez 37 followed by Pete Harrison and Oliver Maskell with 35s. Both Danny and Pete receive a cut to playing handicap.
In the associated Winter Competition - Alan King 102 leads from Kerry Sargeant 99.
In round 2 of the Duke's Eclectic Alan Cinnamond leads on 70 from Roger Rojas, Kerry Sargeant and Alan King all with 71.
Mud provided challenges but chief challenge was the wind in the aftermath of storm Eleanor. A crisp 67 with a back nine 36 secured Oliver Maskell victory with Chris Jones four behind 71 and Stephen Mason 3rd 72.
The competition was 'abandoned' for handicapping purposes by the Committee due to Glendale staff cutting fresh holes during the competition. Under such conditions CSS=SSS with only reductions to handicaps; no handicap changes arose.
