‘Bogey’ competition

We are at the half way stage of the Porters Wood Golf Course Autumn League. The format is a ‘Par’ or ‘Bogey’ competition, where players in essence play matchplay against the course.

The competition is played hole by hole. If a player makes a nett birdie or better he wins that hole and marks it with a +. If a player makes a nett bogey or worse he loses the hole and marks it down with a -. A player halves the hole if they score a nett par and this is marked with a 0. The lost holes are subtracted from the won holes to give a final score.

With the poor recent weather it is safe to say that the course is so far winning!

Only 2 players have +’s against their names. Rick Ishmael leads the way with +4 from his best 4 rounds out of 5, with Andy Teasey in second on +2. Paul Sinker is third on -1. The rest of the field are some way behind with a number of players already dropping out. The best of the rest is John Hoystead on -3.

Week 1 winner: Mr. R. Ishmael +3; second Mr. A. Teasey +1

Week 2 winner: Mr. A. Teasey +1; second Mr. P. Sinker +1

Week 3 winner: Mr. R. Ishmael +1; second Mr. A. Teasey 0

Week 4 winner: Mr. J. Kearsley +2; second Mr. R. Ishmael +2

Week 5 winner: Mr. P. Sinker +2; second Mr. J. Kearsley 0
