Crellin lasted well to tee herself up with Stableford prize

Fiona Crellin secured herself a Christmas gift when she took home the top spot in the 2014 CIGA Year Long Stableford Competition.  

Throughout 2014 members of the Cayman Island Golf Association took part in a series of 12 individual competitions, each producing winners in their own right, but which also combined to produce an overall series winner.  

All rounds took place at the North Sound Golf Club and the series had the benefit of generous sponsorship from UBS. 

The Stableford format is played the world over and involves taking the golfer’s actual score for a hole, deducting any handicap allowance and then awarding points on a sliding scale against what the par for the hole should be.  

If the net score – after handicap – is 1 over par then 1 point is awarded, 2 for a par, 3 for a birdie etc. Over a full round of 18 holes a golfer who plays to their handicap will get 36 points. 

In order to be eligible for the prizes in the series golfers must have completed at least seven rounds. The positions were determined on the basis of the average of each golfer’s best seven scores. 

Crellin had an impressive average score of 37.56. She received her prize from golf association past president and UBS representative Jason Perras.  

Runner-up and also with an impressive total was Guy Dilliway on 37.0, third was Karoly Szucs with 36.4, Emma Woodhouse was fourth on 35.4 and fifth was Bob Vere with 35.3.  

The Stableford series is one of many events organized by the golf association throughout the year and a full programme of tournaments and fun events, including the Stableford series are in place for 2015.
