The half-way point (20 rounds) of the JGC 2018 Men’s Eclectic competition has come and gone. The gross scores from these 20 rounds have been analysed, with the more interesting results detailed below.
- Gross scores have been entered for 183 players.
- 183 players have played 1,546 rounds.
- 173 players have a gross score for every hole (ie no “wipes”).
- 2 players have played in all 20 rounds.
- The leading gross score is 4 shots ahead.
- 3 players have a gross score below 60
- 99 players have at least 1 birdie and 19 players have achieved birdies on 5 or more holes.
- 2 eagles so far (on the 12th).
- Hardest hole is the 18th (par 4), averaging 5.12, with only 1 birdie.
- Easiest hole is still the 9th (par 3), averaging 2.9, with 37 players having birdies.
Eclectic competitions are designed so that the lowest handicap players do not necessarily win the Gross competition. After 20 rounds the top 20 players are within 10 shots of the leader.
Remember, the Nett scores will not be known until after the last eclectic round on 24 November 2018, and will only be revealed at the Club’s Presentation function on 2 December 2018. However, it does appear as though a player with a handicap of over 30 is leading the Nett competition with a score of 39!!
We are still seeing first rounds added to the eclectic competition and there is still plenty of time for all members to complete the required minimum number of 8 rounds and be eligible to win either the Gross or Nett competition.
