The swindle bet will be on from Sat and it produces a few challenges during the lockdown including there being no cash or change available at the club so all pay outs have to be divisible by £5.00.
There have been many discussions over the months on the swindle bet and I’ve decided to use the lockdown to trial a few changes, which will get more people involved and hopefully challenge everyone to the 18th hole. (I’ve have discussed it with a few who broadly agree).
The main change being if there are enough players we will have pay outs for 2nd and 3rd place. Please see the attached spreadsheet, which I would encourage you all to keep in your wallets for reference so we can all distribute the cash.
There are also a couple of other tweaks to make it (a) more challenging and (b) easier to pay out during the restrictions.
- No ties. Front & back 9, overall, 2nd & 3rd will all be decided on countback. Obviously that will make the back 9 doubly important.
- Cards must be swopped with only the payer and marker on it. If you want to record 3-4 scores use another card. (3 or 4 scores on a card usually end up messy, inaccurate and often unreadable, which will make it difficult to analyse countbacks.
- Cards which are likely to result in a pay out must be handed in. No card no pay out.
- F9/B9 & total points to be clearly marked. Wrong scores could result in you not getting paid, so double check it.
This is a trial, we can’t all hang around after the round hence the changes for the lockdown. I hope everyone is in favour and hopefully it will bring more enjoyment to everyone with your overall score now being more important.
