Seniors Avalon league update
The team played their second match away to Mendip Spring last Monday.
First out were Martin Hawkins and myself. Not quite at our best, but nevertheless we played par golf and won fairly comfortably 4 and 3.
Next out were John Parkinson and Nick Goodliff. A strong pairing who despite giving quite a few shots finished strongly to win 3 and 2. Two up
Norman Banfield and Hugh McGuire followed, giving a few shots which their opponents took full advantage of and ended up winning 3 and 2. 2 - 1.
Next out were Rich Bartin and Geoff Monks. This was a very tight match with leads changing hands a few times. Rich and Geoff went to the last needing a birdie to halve the match. Both unfortunately just missed putts and they ended up losing 1 down. Match all square 2 each.
Last out were Martin Abbott and Rob Ford. This match was a few holes behind the others and no one knew the latest! I went out and saw them on the 17 th . Both Martin and Rob had great drives but proceeded to top their next two shots! It looked as if they were going to lose the hole so I asked how the match was going. Martin said " we have already won 3 and 2!" Phew .
Well played all. A difficult place to play. Wedmore lost 5 nil the previous week!
