Once again Mark played extremely well today, handing out a thrashing to his only opponent today. It all started with him nailing a 20m putt on Hole 1 for a par and never let up from there, scoring a whopping 42 stableford points.

His dominant win gets him a step closer to the year end lead, setting up a tight run to the end.

The NT competition today was individual and 2BBB stablebleford. The winner scored 44 points and MarkB, with 42 points, grabbed the $20 third prize after a COUNT-BACK.

Round 19: Triple Crown Reigns Again

3rd October:
[Presentation 2020Oct03a]
Trophy Presentation

MarkB showed dominant playing form today, taking out a triple crown and continuing to close the lead in the annual skins tournament under hot sunny conditions. His triple crown comes only two matches after the last one from PeterH showing how tough the competition has become.

We were also joined by two new player recruits today, MarkT and Michael. Both played off social handicaps and taught Craig a lesson or two with their consistent play and straight hitting.

Today's controversy came after the match when Skins reconciliation proved difficult due to the scant scoring details within Group B, prompting Craig to suggest there needs to be some penalty for inadequate scoring details!

The NT competition today was strokeplay. The winner made net 11 under par.

Round 18: Another Turn for Mark

19th September:
[Presentation 2020Sep19a]
Trophy Presentation

Course conditions looked ordinary as the round started with overcast sky, some misty rain and recently cored greens with generous sand covering. Happily the weather improved as the round progressed.

The tension was high as skins results had to wait for the two groups to assemble post round. This delay was a concern for some of the group.

Mark took the round with a dominant front 9 after resisting a late surge from the two Peters.

The NT competition was singles and 2BBB stableford. The winner scored 42 points and the leading 2BBB score was 47 points after a count-back.

Stableford Individual Scores
[Name (hcap) Points Skins]:

Birdies:

Longest drive (13th hole):

PeterD with a tee shot of 198m.

Rules of the Round:

Definitions

Ground Under Repair

Ground under repair also includes the following things, even if the Committee does not define them as such:

  • Any hole made by the Committee or the maintenance staff in:
    • Setting up the course (such as a hole where a stake has been removed or the hole on a double green being used for the play of another hole), or
    • Maintaining the course (such as a hole made in removing turf or a tree stump or laying pipelines, but not including aeration holes).
  • Grass cuttings, leaves and any other material piled for later removal. But:
    • Any natural materials that are piled for removal are also loose impediments, and
    • Any materials left on the course that are not intended to be removed are not ground under repair unless the Committee has defined them as such.
  • Any animal habitat (such as a bird’s nest) that is so near a player’s ball that the player’s stroke or stance might damage it, except when the habitat has been made by animals that are defined as loose impediments (such as worms or insects).

 


Weather:

overcast early with misty rain at times, fine later in the round.
