This Saturday’s competition is a 4 Ball Worst Ball (4BWB Stableford) for both men and ladies. It is a slight variation to a 4 Ball Best Ball (4BBB Stableford) that normally occurs.
In a 4BBB Stableford, if you score a 4 for 3 points and your partner scores a 6 for 1 point, the score that goes on the card is the 4 for 3. Then you add up these stableford points for you and your partner’s total.
In a 4BWB Stableford, if you score a 4 for 3 points and your partner scores a 6 for 1 point, the score that goes on the card is the 6 for 1. Then you add up these stableford points for you and your partner’s total.
This is the only difference, you score the worst of you and your partner’s stableford scores, not the best stableford score.
The winning pair will be the pair that has the highest score, and the rundown will act the same as normal.
There will be an optional sweepstakes run in conjunction with this event. For a cost of $2, each participant on the day can try to pick the winning score on the day. The total pot collected will be distributed evenly amongst those who correctly select the winning score. As there is a separate competition for men’s and ladies, there will be a separate pot for both the men’s and ladies’ competitions. One guess only per player. If no-one correctly guesses the winning score, then the person / people with the closest guess higher than the winning score will collect a share of the pot. For example, if the winning score is 35 points and no-one picks this score, then the person / people who picked 36 will share the pot. If no-one picked 36, then whoever picked 37 will collect, and so on. Bad luck if you picked 34, no chocolates for you.
Helen Caris will be sitting at a table near the hatch adjacent the garden room collecting the guesses from each of you if you would like to participate in the sweepstakes.
