3 Counties Report – Folke away 23.4.16
The team on Saturday consisted of Carole Paterson, Tim Edwards, myself and Nigel Brighouse, Steve and Sarah Uzzell, Angela Baker and Ian Jackaman, Ann McRae and Sean Monaghan, Ray Edwards and Amie Stamp. Thank you all for setting a new record for this season: last match 4 points, this match 8, versus Folke’s 10. We are on the up! We had 1 win, 2 halves and 2 losses, gaining more by playing away.
Thanks this week to Ian Jackaman for joining in. I hope the course maintenance did not put him off playing again and thanks too to Amie Stamp who allowed us to twist her arm the night before. She stepped into the last slot, having worked in the morning and cheerfully gave it her best. The Folkeopposition warmed to her immediately on the first tee when she joined in the repartee, identifying her ball with “Mine has a big ‘AS(s)’ on it”…her initials being AS. She is still 36 hcp and had to drop to 28 for the match. Thank you to them for being encouraging and supportive all the way round. She and Ray played for the Reserve points. Once Folke had won the match they made Amie play off the whites (for fun). From the white tee on the 18th she was 20 yds off the green for 3…a par 5 for men, 484 yds. Looking good Amie!
