Welcome back from holidays to Ivan Barrette and Ross Ayton. Welcome back Rob Lidsey after a long lay off due to a knee injury.

Below is the update of the Race To October.

 

Race to October Player of the Year: Update after round on 2nd October

With just ONE week remaining, we have a new leader and 4 players still in the hunt for the title of Player of the Year.

With an 8th place today, Ken Stevenson earned 90 points (total points 1760) to take a 30 point lead over the previous leader Paul Wallace (1730 points).  Allan Steeden (1665 points) is 95 points behind Ken and Les Cuka (1645 points) is 115 points behind.  With 185 points available for winning next week (assuming 50-54 players), any of these three players have the possibility of overtaking Ken in the final round of the regular season.

The 5th player on the leaderboard is Les Berghofer on 1565 points.  Being 195 points behind, a win next week by Les would leave him just behind Ken’s points.

Race to October Stableford Finale

Remember that your position on the Race to October leaderboard will determine how many bonus stableford points you will receive for The Race to October Stableford Finale which will be conducted over 54 holes in conjunction with the three stableford rounds on the 16th, 23rd and 30th October.

A full listing of the leaderboard will be on the notice board later this week.  Two players (Ian Cockburn and Neville Catterall) need to play next week in order to each the minimum of 23 games needed to be eligible for Finale prizes.

Upcoming events this month:

28th & 29th October 2 day Festival Of Golf at Worrigee.

Monday 14th October Par 3 at Nowra – more names needed

Thursday 17th October ProAm at Worrigee – there are a few vacancies. See the Pro Shop. Cost $60 with brekky and lunch included. Volunteers are needed for the day. See Alf with your shirt size.

1st     Chris Pender     42 points    2nd    Alf Bargwanna    39 points    3rd Col Brigstock    38 points

In the absence of the Publicity Officer, President Bob has written the following report:

21 hearty golfers took to the course in what looked like a pretty lousy day but low and behold  the day blossomed into a really  majestic day.To the 40 players that bowed out the conditions were quite good.
It looked like a minor miracle was about to take place Alf  Bargwanna was in the Clubhouse on 39 pts and looked the over all winner when down the outside flashed Chris Pender with 42 pts a great round .Poor Alfie maybe one day.Every one that stayed for the Presentation was generously rewarded with a ball.Next week is Calderwood bus leaving right on 7 -00 Am returning at 3-00pm.If you have your name up and don’t turn up you still have to pay as there are no cancellations at Callderwood.Good luck to those in the Championships at Mollymook on Monday 23rd September.We still need a few players for Mollymook Monday 30th September.
More names are needed for the Jack Elliott Day Sunday 29th September .
Our next round at Worrigee is Wednesday 2nd October which is the Wray Owen Monthly Mug. The greens should be super quick by then.

Fixtures coming up: 23rd September Ladies Tournament HELP NEEDED, 25th September Calderwood, 29th September Jack Elliott Day, 30th September deferred day at Mollymook.

There is a par 3 day at Nowra on 14th October.

Listed below is the Race To October update:

Race to October: Update after round on 11 SeptemberTo be eligible for any of the Race to October prizes, players must have completed at least 23 rounds during the regular season.  There are 3 rounds remaining in the regular season.

As at 11 September, 49 players have already played at least 23 rounds and there are another 8 who can reach 23 games by the end of the regular season.  Names in italics on the leaderboard indicate players who need additional rounds to qualify.

Race to October “Player of the Year”

The points leader at the end of the regular season will be anointed the Race To October Player of the Year.  As this trophy is a recognition of our most consistent performer over the year, this competition will be all grades combined.

After the Mug round on 11 September, Paul Wallace (with a 5th placing and 155 points) has taken a 65 point lead in the “Player of the Year” race.  The Race remains quite tight with many of the Top 10 players a good chance of catching Paul over the next three weeks.

Race to October Stableford Finale

The Race to October Stableford Finale will be conducted over 54 holes in conjunction with the three stableford rounds on the 16th, 23rd and 30th October.  For the Finale, in addition to the overall Finale winner, we will also have Grade winners.  For this event, players will receive bonus stableford points based on the Race to October leaderboard points they have achieved during the regular season.  The leaderboard put up on the pillar outside the pro shop on Wednesday’s shows the number of rounds played and the bonus points which would have applied had that round been the last round of the season.

It would be much appreciated if you remember to rake the bunkers.

Nominations for positions at next month’s AGM should be on the noticeboard this week.

Next week’s event is Booth And Partners Single Stableford.
