Novel French soup of the day

Collier - Par Bisque

This week the club revisited a novelty scoring method, ‘Par Bisque‘ (PB) in which the player can use as many handicap points as they wish on any hole to affect their score. It's challenging mentally to plan when to take the shots and it creates a few interesting outcomes.

Overall the scores were much higher that regular Par. Marc Ellis did the best; he has been playing great golf in the past month or so, always threatening to win and being regular on the NTP’s. Congratulations to Marc as his playing partners said he was smooth all day and rarely put a foot wrong. ‘Mr Podium’ Lawrie Gibson was again amongst the winners, he just cant seem to put a foot wrong Whilst Lui was best of 3 people on plus 5 to take third spot.

The competition threw out some interesting results overall. We all had to score Stableford for handicapping purposes. Marc had 43 points which would have own either way, whilst Lawrie had 34 points. If we look at Craig’s score, he had 37 points for a plus 2 which was 3rd overall in Stableford however 3rd last in PB, Scott had 24 in Stableford yet plus 3 in PB. So it really was an interesting scoring method and had some challenges with a few people finishing with a shot left in the bank. I imagine this will be a once a year event
