Senior Ryder Cup Qualifying - 2018 Team

Dec Dunn (Club Captain), Ryan La Rose and several of us on the 2017 team have had a number of discussions re how to field the best possible Whitevale team each year, and what alternatives we may have going forward. With 100 clubs from Ontario, New York State and Michigan in SRC now and growing by 20 or more clubs next year, this is becoming a prestige event and Whitevale should be represented by the best team possible.

 The revised plan is to use this 2017 Senior Club Championship as promoted to create the core team, and then complement it by a 2-day qualifier in May of 2018. There, those not eligible for this year's qualifying could attempt to qualify and those from 2017 Senior Club Championship who wish to improve their position could attempt to score better. As SRC is a gross match play event, gross scores will be the determining factor. Super Seniors (65 and older) may qualify from white tees if they choose. Super Seniors who play Blue tees may qualify for both Senior and Super Senior

 A team of 4-6 Super Seniors and 10-12 Seniors should be registered. 

 The note below was received from SRC Executive on July 9th.

 The Board of the SRC has discussed the age eligibility for players - now states May 15. We have determined that to include as many senior players who wish to participate the guideline will be as follows beginning in 2018:

"To be eligible to play an SRC match a player must be 55 years of age and must also meet the playing qualifications set out by his club. For example, a player who turns 55 in late June could play for his SRC team in the month of July. But to be eligible for SRC playoffs or Championship all players must have played at least one divisional match."

Men's Member-Guest

For this years event the MMG had a new format in place that saw each team playing five 9 hole matches over the two days. The weather on Thursday played havoc but we were able to complete day 1 and look forward to what day 2 would bring. After each team played their final two matches on Friday each flight winner took part in an elimination shoot-out that would last four holes leaving the last two team standing to do battle. The team of Fred Calvert & Fred Nurnberger faced-off against Andrew Jackson & Stuart Vandersluis on the 18th to see who would be crowned this years champion. After the teams halved the 18th with 5's they went back to the tee for a sudden death extra hole. With the team of Calvert/Nurnberger lying 4; Andrew Jackson stepped up and knocked in a 25 footer for par giving him and his partner Stuart Vandersluis the trophy. Congratulations to Andrew and Stuart on their victory and thank you to everyone who participated and sponsored this years event!
