Correction to the previous post: I failed to include Max in the final standings. Even with his departure he is still T3 for the Season Points, showing what an excellent season he had!
In less than a week, the NATO Cup will be awarded. There is still a chance for Josh to catch Darryl for the season points winner for the 2022-2023 NATO Golf Club season due to his stellar play in the Club Championship, earning 7 points and jumping from 7th place to 2nd place in one go. But, it will take continued stellar play in the Closing Cup.
It is a long-shot, but if Josh wins the Closing Cup, gets both the Long Drive and Closest to the Pin, and Darryl doesn't get second place, then Josh would win the NATO Cup based on countback of the final events.
I'm not sure what the odds will be for that, but it could be worth a bet or two!
For the Closing Cup next week at Cleydael, we will have some additional players from the SHAPE Golf Association joining us to enjoy one of the finest courses in Belgium at a good discount. If you haven't signed up yet, please do so soon. And for the NGC ladies, there will be a woman from SGA joining us, so if we get an NGC lady playing, we will have another Long Drive prize for the ladies.
The full standings (corrected) for the Season Points are below.
