Close Competition in 2010-11 Australian Senior Order of Merit
With just three events remaining in the 2010-11 Australian Senior Amateur Rankings competition three NSW golfers are locked in a battle for the gold medal presented to the leading senior. To identify the champion an average is calculated by dividing by 8 the total points earned from events played across all states of Australia during the 2010-11 season. If the number of events played is greater than 8 the total points is then divided by the actual number of events played.
The current leader is Roy Vandersluis (The Lakes) with an average of 94.33 from 8 events. He leads Denis Dale (Twin Creeks) who has an average of 92.06 from 6 events played. Holding third place is the reigning Australian Senior Amateur Champion Stefan Albinski (Mona Vale) on 87.98 from 5 events. In a clean sweep for NSW golfers, Richard Greville (Avondale) and Rick Oliver (Young) are next on the table.
The next event is the 2011 South Australian Senior Amateur Championship at the Victor Harbor Golf Club. With both Dale and Albinski competing in this event they are well placed to take the lead away from Vandersluis.
