Scratch Order of Merit – final standings

The second Scratch prize of the season – the Scratch Order of Merit – has concluded after this weekend’s Mike Murphy Life Members Cup, and the winner is Ian Roche with a fantastic average scratch score of 69.22 (i.e. 4.22 over par for his 9 counting events) – a truly excellent season of consistent scoring, highlighted by a brilliant -1 under par gross 64 in the September Medal.

Runner up honours went to David Watson (70.29) and Ben Plumridge (70.50). This season, although condensed into a tighter time frame than normal, has produced some sizzling golf from the leading 3 players on the Order of Merit, with 14 sub 70 rounds recorded.
