darrellsuper6 results – week 7


A rather belated post this week due to the impending vacation.

The September Manager of the Month went right down to the wire, with Ken finally making it over the line ahead of Jord thanks to his nine-point haul on the day and, more importantly, his Golden Goal counting ahead of results, both having predicted the same amount of correct scores. Jay couldn’t hold onto the lead he had going into the final week and picked up a measly three points to finish a point behind them both on 20 points for the month.

Les finished two points further back on 18, a point ahead of Pat and Micky D, as we alluded to last week, will want to forget September ever happened, picking up only 11 points in total for September.

The league is a different story altogether from last year.  There was nothing in it all season long, but Ken’s consecutive manager of the month awards have had an obvious bearing on the league table proper.  He’s way out in front on 31 points from Pat, Jord and Jay, all tied for joint second on 24 points for the season.  Les is just two points back on 22 and Micky D is in the wooden spoon position, just a further two points adrift on 20.

So, the at-a-glance results for week 7 and the league standings are thus:

DarrellSuper6 Results & League Positions, Week 7

This week, Round 8, sees a mixture of fixtures from the Premiership and Championship before they close their doors in Round 9 for the Internationals. This week, being the first Saturday in the month, is also Round 2 of the Sweet F.A. Cup qualifying Round Robin. Going head to head this Saturday we have

1. Jase vs Jord,

2. Les vs Ken, and

3. Pat vs Micky D

As we’ll be in mid-air come 5 o’clock Saturday, we won’t know the results until we’ve got our gobs around a couple of cervezas on Lanzarote so we’ll check back with you w/c 22nd October.

2012 Fantasy Race to Dubai

European Tour Fantasy Race to Dubai

European Tour Fantasy Race to Dubai

From Scoop.it – in curated topic UK Golf by Zebedeerox

Fantasy Race To Dubai – brought to you by The European Tour and Fantasy League.

Blimey – what a bunch of miscreants we have in this week’s Zeb’s Tee Totallers for the European Tour’s fantasy Race to Dubai!

To be fair, I’m sure they’re all smashing chaps as well as excellent golfers (well, they’d better be!).

There’s a distinct lack of familiar faces in the team, this week.  Although, it has to be said, many of the top European golfers are absent from St Andrews/Carnoustie/Kingsbarns, this weekend.

But we do have three returning heroes from Medinah lining up, including Germany’s Martin Kaymer whose putt so famously won the Ryder Cup for us last weeekend in historic fashion. Messrs Lawrie and Hanson are also back in domestic action, safelhome from action in Illinois.

Gonzalo FDEZ-CASTAÑO, my man of the moment way back in the middle of September winning the Italian Open in the last event before the Ryder Cup obviously keeps his spot; also, his fellow countryman Rafa CABRERA-BELLO lines up as one of the young guns alongside Simon Dyson, who I think will win his first top three place on the European Tour this year in Scotland this weekend.

Then it’s call in the old guard, with Thomas BJÖRN, Ernie ELS, Monty and finally Darren CLARKE, who’s had a tough year defending the old Claret Jug and is due a top five finish, if not higher.

So there we have it – a mixture of youth, European endeeavour, experience and confidence for the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.  It tees off with three pairings across all three courses at 9:00 am in the morning, so if you’ve not entered your team yet, you’ve not got long to do it.

The full tee times and pairings for the Alfred Dunhill can be found here: http://www.europeantour.com/europeantour/season=2012/tournamentid=2012074/teetimes/index.html

All the best, Thet Watson & the UK Golf gang.

p.s. we’re off on a jolly to Lanzarote on Saturday for a fortnight so, if there’s nought posted between now and October 22nd, it’s because we’re sozzled on cerveza and sangria!
