The December Medal was played in windy conditions which made scoring very difficult and the scores posted higher than we are accustomed to seeing. However, Kevin Turner playing off a 24 handicap, shot a very commendable net 66 to be the overall winner. Kevin was closely followed by David Goulding (net 68) and Shaun Friend (net 69).
The Category 1 winner was Gary Lutkin with a net 75.
Those of you that were expecting your handicaps to go up 0.1 will be disappointed. The Competition Standard Scratch Score (CSS), which is calculated on the scores posted by the whole field and determines the size of handicap adjustments, came out at 74 reflecting the tough playing conditions. As this is 3 shots more than the normal CSS of 71 the handicap regulators only allow reductions to be made.
Congratulations to Kevin – a remarkable score considering the conditions.
