Game 1. Rod Tucker (9) & Graham Taylor (19), this was very much an up & down affair, with Long Sutton going 3 down early on, only to pull back to all square with a brilliant birdie from Graham on the par 5, 5th hole. We ended up 2 down with 2 holes to play. Rod then parred the 17th & 18th holes to halve the match, a fair result.
Game 2. Richard Barton(9) & Franco Calandrini (18) lost 5 & 3 to a good Bridport pair. This was a shame as they were the “Captain’s Bankers” or maybe I misspelt that phrase!!
Game 3. Mike Poole (13) & Peter Hill (18) had a very close game, just going down 2 & 1 on a Bridport course that was very difficult to hold the ball on the greens.
Game 4. Tim Forward (12) & Andrew Elflick lost 3 & 2. Thank you both for playing.
Game 5. Colin Hardaway (15) & David Kennedy (21) lost to a strong Bridport pair, 3 & 1
Game 6. Douglas Hamilton(12) & John Rooks (18) both playing at Bridport for the first time
lost 5 & 4. But now they know the course, just wait till next year, “if selected.”
Rod the Captain was hit on the head on the 3rd tee from a stray shot by a Bridport player.
The same player also hit his ball onto the 15th green and just missed Rod while he was putting.
“Did someone say this was a Friendly!! ”
Final Result Bridport 5.1/2 Long Sutton ½
Thank you all for playing
