Results from week 6 of the Putt18 World Pro League.
I've been competing in the inaugural Putt18 World Pro League during the pandemic and six of the seven events in the first season have now been completed.
Players from the UK, USA, Australia and New Zealand have been pitting their Putt18 putting skills against each other in the fortnightly challenges. The final week gets underway next Wednesday, 30th September with the champion crowned on Sunday 4th October.
After six weeks a total of 480 rounds of Putt18 have been recorded.
At the top of the leader-board is Matt Ansley of New Zealand with 742 points scored in the six events.
GB's Dave Gomm in second spot with 602 points. Dave has also set a new world record for an individual round with a score of 57 recorded last week.
John Ansley of New Zealand is in third place with 548 points.
I'm currently in 18th place of the 20 players left competing in the marathon of putting with 91 points.
It'll be an interesting final week of games to see if there is any movement at the top and bottom of the leader-board!
Many thanks to my fellow players for keeping track of all the action.
Putt18 World Pro League
Each player has a 20-minute time limit to play four 18-hole rounds for a 72-hole total score in each of the seven events. There are a variety of points on offer for low scores and total rounds.

We first played the Putt18 game format in the Putt18 Home Putting Challenge 4 Nations Cup international event against Australia, New Zealand and the USA back in May.
The Putt18 game mat consists of six tee-off boxes and three target score zones. Players must hit their balls from each of the tee boxes in turn aiming at the Par-4, Par-5 and Par-3 targets while avoiding fairways, bunkers and water hazards that carry penalty points. After the 18 shots have been played you tot up your score to see what you've shot for your round.
Further details of the Putt18 golf game mat can be found on the Putt18 website.
