2020 Vets Championships
As you are all aware, the 1st Round of our Championships last Monday was disrupted by very poor weather, not sufficient to close the course but enough to reduce the field from 120 players to just 18. All of those 18 players were from Divisions 1 and 2. Regrettably, there were none from Division 3. Significant discussion ensued amongst the Committee and some Members as to how the winners could be determined as our Championships are conducted over 2 Stroke Rounds, such being one of our problems. The second problem being that no Division 3 players turned up. Fortunately, our Club Captain Glenn Woodley has provided us with the answers.
Firstly, it must be recognised that the 1st Round scores of those 18 players must stand. With that as a given, the 2nd Round on 2nd November will consist of 2 sections:-
1. For those 18 players who completed the 1st Round, they will be playing their 2nd Round and the winners of Divisions 1 and 2 will come from just those 18 players. The remainder of players in these 2 Divisions, will play an independent Stableford game with just a Single Stableford winner's prize being given plus ball run down.
2. For Division 3 players, winners of this Division will be determined from this one Stroke Round.
We recognise that whatever decision is made as to how this disrupted Championship should be amended will not satisfy everyone, however your Committee fully endorses the Club Captain's recommended solution and we thank him very much for his input. Fingers crossed for a fine day come Monday.
