Last round in the Winter League and a glorious win for Colin, who set his stall out in the good weather before Christmas and then coasted home. Bit of drizzle to start but then becoming an acceptable morning of almost no wind.
A tie for first place between Simon B and David M with 35 points, Simon’s made of a good sprinkling of 3 pointers and one blob, and DM’s a procession of ones and twos until near the end.
So Colin is champ of the Winter League 2017-18 with a cracking average of 36.75 over his 8 qualifying rounds. His total of 294 was 2 better than the winning scores in the previous two winter leagues, very well done.
David M was second, 16 back, just hanging on as Simon B put in a late surge of scoring to just miss out by 1.
Colin also held on to win the Eclectic by a single shot from Andy, streets ahead on birdie count.
And a 3-way tie in the handicap version between Andy, Colin and Lance.
So that’s it until the summer league starts up on 5 May, when we hope the weather will have taken a turn for the better. Let’s have a good turn out then as it’s a shame when people don’t join in, this being far cheaper than the costs of entering the club competitions over the same number of weeks.
Will provide some stats for the rounds played this time, maybe with a suggestion for providing some encouragement for the higher handicap players, who faithfully turn out and pay out each time.
