Mer­rigum golf:

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport -

It was a pleas­ant day for golf on Satur­day and while num­bers were not quite what they were the pre­vi­ous week, there was still a qual­ity field con­test­ing the pop­u­lar par event.

Tash Do­herty showed a clean pair of heels to the men by be­ing the only player to fin­ish on the pos­i­tive side of the ledger.

She won the day with +1, one bet­ter than her clos­est chal­lenger on a day when there was not a wide spread in the scores across the whole field.

It was a great ef­fort from Do­herty, show­ing why she is a mul­ti­ple­times club cham­pion. She also earned brag­ging rights as the best of the Do­herty fam­ily com­pet­ing on the day.

Greg Hall was the run­ner-up af­ter fin­ish­ing square for the round.

Per­haps as hand­i­cap­per he may be able to ex­plain the al­go­rithms that en­able the DSR for the day to be two shots less than the best men’s score re­turned.

Many of us would be in­ter­ested to know the com­plex­i­ties of our hand­i­cap­ping sys­tem that doesn’t al­ways re­ward a good round with a re­duced hand­i­cap.

We will put aside a week­end in the near fu- ture for a work­shop where Greg will make us all au fait with this se­cre­tive sys­tem that dic­tates whether we can com­pete equally with our fel­low play­ers or not.

Next best on Satur­day were John Fuller with -1 and Rod Ne­wham re­turn­ing to some good form with -2.

Near­est-the-pins were won by Clint Pry­goda on the ninth and Phil Sav­age on the 14th.

The money on the 12th did not go off so there will be some ex­tra cash to play for next Satur­day.

This Satur­day’s event is sta­ble­ford.
