We now have 67 entries to date for our delayed 9th Match Day of the season at Gullane No. 2. on Sunday the 24th October. We can accommodate up to 84 Players. Registration for the final Match Day at the West Links North Berwick on Sunday the 31st October is also now open for registration. If you are available, please enter both events through your Golf Genius App. These golf courses are two of the finest in the County and should not be missed! If you cannot enter through the App, send me a text 07595 301425 or email me at [email protected] Your Club Junior Convenor will select their Team of 6 for the event. Other Players can still compete for the individual prizes and for the prizes in Scratch and Net Orders of Merit.
The positions in the OOMs can be seen on the App Portal under “Season Points.” It is the best 5 out of 10 scores which count and several Players with only 3 or 4 scores still have a chance to win. The current Leaders can improve further by improving on the worst of their 5 placings to date.
In the Scratch OOM, Fergus Brown has a good lead of 20 points over Jack Lucas. Fergus’ worst placing from his 5 events is 9th, so he does not have much “wiggle room” to improve. Similarly Jack’s worst placing from 5 events is a 10th place. Luke Greig is 22 points behind, but he has a 22nd placing to improve on! And watch out for Byron Archibald who has only played in 4 MDs with a worst placing of 10th!
In the Net OOM Daryl Yuill leads by only 8 points from Connor Cook. Daryl can improve further by finishing well and discarding his worst placing of T13th. Similarly, Connor can improve substantially if he can improve on his T25th placing. Watch out for Rebecca Wilson who has two placings of T44th and 57th she can still improve on. The “dark horses” are Adam McLean and Charlotte Bauld who have only played in 4 MDs. A win at Gullane and the 35 points which goes with a win, might promote either of them to 1st place!
I have news for the winners of the trophies at our Championships from August the 6th at Royal Musselburgh. The trophies have all been engraved and will be ready for you to collect at either of the next two Matchdays. Sorry for the delay, but this was beyond my control.
Please enter both of these Match Days through your App now. There are lots of unclaimed prizes from earlier MDs so please collect those when you register at the course. Unclaimed prizes are highlighted on the list below.
