The 2020 Hurtsville Handiskins Tournament commenced on Saturday 11th July. Despite the poor weather conditions for the opening round the event has again proved very popular amongst our members with 49 golfers participating in the event.
The tournament sees each participant play a minimum of 3 of 5 qualifying rounds in our Saturday competition and combine their best 3 Stableford scores for an aggregate total. There were lots of good rounds throughout the tournament as players competed for round honours and jockeyed for the top spot on the Handiskins Live Leaderboard.
The 5th qualifying round on Saturday 15th August saw more than 18 players with a realistic chance of a spot in the $1200 Skins Final, but only 4 golfers would be left standing at the end.
Sitting on top of the leaderboard with 116 points was Jimmy White who played remarkably well considering he missed the opening round.
Congratulations to all our 2020 Final Qualifiers that will contest the Skins Final this coming weekend and also our individual round winners. And commiserations to Allan Scully who narrowly missed out on qualifying by a countback.
