Progressive Stableford

Progressive StablefordThis week's Progressive Stableford Competition gave the players the opportunity to view the Championship Course at Almouj Golf from a slightly different perspective. 

Normally the players would be allocated a starting tee and would then play from this point for the duration of the round, in the case of the club competitions the men would normally play from the Blue tees and the ladies from the Reds. The Championship Course at Almouj Golf has 5 teeing ground options, each making the course slightly longer and arguably more challenging.

In the Progressive Stableford the players started from their regular tees but if they managed to secure 3 Stableford points or more on a hole they would play the next hole by starting from one tee further back, 1 point or worse and they would move one tee further forwards. A net par or two points meant that they remained on the same tee.

Despite the fact that the format allowed the course to become shorter following a bad hole the scoring was kept very modest. This may have been attributed to the greens regaining some of their early season speed or simply that players were playing the course from previously unused teeing grounds!

The best score on the day was posted by Etienne Jambeau whose 34 points was good enough to lead by 2 from second placed Aaron O'Hara. Aaron narrowly edged out Mike Bulliman who recorded the same score of 32 points but finished in third place by virtue of count back over the closing 6 holes. Finishing at the top of the ladies division was Karen D'Amours with 31 points.

The only two of the day was recorded by Iain Watters, Iain's birdie on the island green 14th hole secured him the pot of Titleist Velocity golf balls.

The top 10 scores were as follows:
