Just when we thought it was all over …
Fantastic round by Andy, needing to improve by 9 to catch up and getting it! Gross 79 for 39 points, knocking off a 30 as Pete doesn’t quite advance. And that with two blobs, on 5 and 12, not usually problem holes. But otherwise 22 points back, including 4 pointers on 10 and 17. And that’s enough for Andy to win the Battle of Britain comp by all accounts, and immortality courtesy of the honours board, well done!
Don’t have cards for Pete or James so can’t analyse what didn’t happen for Pete. But the long and short of it is it’s a playoff for the Summer League top spot! So you two play together when you can, normal Stableford with sudden death if needed.
Good to see Andrew and Jonathan among the prizes, both with 36 points
Here’s the final position, with Andy and Pete gazumping long time front runner Lance in the home straight.
No question who’s top dog in the Eclectic as Mark cruises in with 57 and a massive 17 birdies – blimey, that’s more than I’ve had in total since the leagues started all those years ago.
But the same campaigners appearing for second and third places, ie Andy and Lance.
Autumn recess now, until we resume on 3 November assuming everyone’s still up for it.
So enjoy the rest of the late season, time to work on all those finer points of the game, maybe.
