LSGC seniors v Enmore Park seniors - 31st March

Seniors Reports and News : LSGC seniors v Enmore Park seniors - 31st March

The seniors team representing LSGC for our inter club match at Enmore Park had a depth of experience. Past club captains and seniors' captains were on display, as the photo taken by current club captain, John Williams, records. This was another trip down memory lane for me as the drive to Enmore takes you through the leafy suburbs of  Bridgwater and past Haygrove school. In my day it was called Dr Morgan's Grammar school, where I were educated. Some members of the 16 man team were seen to indulge in an energy providing pre-match bacon bap, but personally I prefer a Kit Kat halfway round, sometimes both! 

I picked another top golfer as my partner and  Alan Webber's great putt from way off the green on the 9th gave us a 4 hole lead as we turned the corner. Enmore captain Paul and his playing partner dug deep and made a great match of it, taking the result to the final putt on the 18th. We just won, by one! 

In match 2, the experience of John Williams and Malcolm Dennes showed through as they recorded a win 3 &2. I  politely asked the result of match 3 as  Rich Bartin  and Alastair came off the 18th. "We came third" was the reply, but they were still cheerful.

Chris Thayer and Julian met their match going down 3 and 2, which meant we were all square in the first 4 matches. Phil Bowditch and John Pearson were just pipped  at the post losing by one and a jet lagged Peter Hill playing with Glyn also went down 3 and 2. My hopes now rested on the final two pairs. Andy Elfick & John Jeanes recorded a thumping victory finishing 4 and 3 raising my hopes, only to have them dashed. David Kennedy and John Whitehead couldn't quite get the result we needed and overall we lost to Enmore by 5 matches to 3. A couple of pints of Doom Bar and a glass of Merlot later, the result seemed somewhat less significant. Enmore Park is a great venue for golf, especially when the sun shines and you enjoy good company.
