Member's Scramble

23 June 2012Back

Members ScrambleThursday 21st June saw the final tournament of the "winter schedule" with a Members Scramble.  This format offered the golfers a chance to experience some team spirit as opposed to the traditional individual format.

The hottest day of the year and an intense humidity did not discourage the 8 teams of 4, who competed in the tournament.  All players were in good spirits, although under difficult conditions, the scoring was low.

The scramble format did not restrict the number of drives; however a player could not play two consecutive shots, excluding those strokes on the putting green.  With this in mind, a consistent team contribution was paramount for a good score.  All 8 teams were under par with their nett score (gross -10% of combined handicaps), with 50% of the teams breaking par with their gross score.

The winning team posted a very impressive gross 63 converting into a nett 60.9 to clinch first place by just 0.4 of a stroke.  Congratulations to Adrian Bain, Mike Bulliman, Darren Willers and Rob Edwards for their win.  The below table list the top 3 teams on the day.
