15 LC’s enjoyed Staffield Tuesday, the course being in very good condition and we played in superb weather. Staffield remains one of the best tracks we play and while it stays reasonably priced we will continue to use it.
The winner was Jeff Pearce with 43 points and the runner-up was Bernhard Romahn with 42 points.The lowest gross was 78 by Joe Zorich and the most golf was played by Alan Holgate with 113.
Jeff is cut 7 strokes and Bernhard 1 stroke.
12 of us went to the usual place in Mantin for lunch where the grub was good, washed down with plenty of cold beer by those of us who still can. Joe Zorich was celebrating his birthday and playing his last game with us this trip before he heads back to Seattle. He had forgotten the Champagne though! Bon voyage Joe. See you next time.
There was lots of lively chat as well as the ongoing complaint from Bernhard who can’t see the ‘logic’ in the handicapping system. There doesn’t have to be LOGIC in golf society handicapping Bernhard. Like the Rules of Golf, nobody claims that they are fair, just punishing. Erol moaned about his handicap (again) but he is suffering from selective memory loss poor sod.
For the benefit of Erol (and everyone else) I use the Loose Cannons Handicap Manager which is a piece of USGA approved software for calculating handicaps. This is updated with every gross score (adjusted) of every game played with Cannons and so it’s accurate.
