3 Counties match Away v Wheathill A – 11.5.13
Mandy, Sylvie and Rod did not know what they were letting themselves in for when they agreed to play in 3 Counties for the first time. Order emerges from chaos...eventually. The cards were a mess, what with two different layouts and the wrong adjustment shots allocated first time round and then to cap it all, the heavens opened. Cards written in ink...fill in the blanks! This was the first match of the Summer League. Summer mind. Why then were we all huddled into Wheathill's starter hut in full waterproofs and winter underarmour. Very friendly!
I witnessed Karma that day. When Ray last played 3 Counties at Wheathill he upset the opposition by playing out of his socks. He and Sandra Basford won by miles. “Bandit” was shouted from the roof tops, but he couldn't do it again for us. We came up against a Wheathill player, who a fortnight ago was thinking of selling his clubs but on Saturday he turned the corner – he parred the first 5 holes and couldn't do a thing wrong. It happens. We lost one other game but won the remaining three, giving us the winning match points...14 points in total. Our reserve pair lost on the 18th.
Thank you to all the team, Stacie Watts, Sam Clarke, Angela and Dave Baker, Sean Monaghan, Sandra Basford, Nigel Brighouse, Mandy Head and Sylvie and Rod Tucker.
Our next match is Away at Folke on Saturday, 1st June. First tee 1.00 p.m. Anyone interested in playing please sign the sheet in the corridor. You will be sure of a good time.
