Sixty four Visitors & Members played in the 3rd round of SRGC's Tuesday Winter Series Open Rollups. Each round sees 5 prize vouchers awarded totalling £200 to be spent in our Pro Shop and all players accumulate points towards an Order of Merit where the Champion is the player with the best 4 scores from up to 5 rounds wins another Pro Shop voucher for £125.
Winner today was Oliver Towning from Peterborough Milton GC with a score of 41 points.
Order of Merit leader after 3 rounds is Brian Guerin from Rushcliffe GC with 39 points.
After the 2nd round we did notice that a player registered with England Golf as an Independent Golfer (not affiliated to any recognised Club) had played and won a voucher. When the Independent Golfer initiative was launched in mid 2021 SRGC decided that they would, for the time being, be ineligible to win vouchers in our competitions. For most Opens we would identify this issue when players register but this is not so easy for rollup Opens. As we hadn't informed the player before starting his round in December we decided to honour the voucher he won and whilst all Independent Golfers are very welcome to play in future SRGC Opens and continue to have their handicaps adjusted on WHS they will not be eligible to win a prize voucher.
The 4th round is on Tuesday 22nd February, we look forward to seeing many of you again.
