72.5 years ago. The handicap has improved a bit since then, but not by that much.
We gave Andy the prize today for his fine score of 79 gross, 37 points. This was with a couple of birdies and otherwise very tidy golf. But by my reckoning Jonathan had the same 37 not the 36 reported, with a final 5 being worth 2 not the 1 on the card. Lance in third with 35, regular visitor to the prize money.
Lance best going out with an enormous 22, Jonathan and Birthday Boy best with 19 coming back, and Andy best gross with 79.
With a fair amount of recent chat about Refos rules I do think in Medals everyone should enter the club comp or not participate in the prizes. Medals do bring extra pressures, with every shot counting.
Giant leap up the league table by Andy as predicted, with an 8 point improvement on his previous lowest score. Something dramatic needed for James, Mark and PinkSocks in the final two rounds. Could be a costly visit to the vet by Mark, in more ways than one.
But Mark looking really comfy in the Eclectic A.
One step closer for David M in the Eclectic B but a few contenders for the lead held by James.
Salutary thought that it’s taken many of us a whole season’s scores to match the Medal winner’s 66. Still, he’s only a young lad by comparison.
