Seniors Avalon match v Wheathill - away

Seniors Reports and News : Seniors Avalon match v Wheathill - away

The season's first match was away to Wheathill. Last season we lost 4 1/2 to 1/2 !  We were well beaten.

First out was John Parkinson and Mike Poole. They unfortunately came across a pair on great form and receiving quite a few shots. Ultimately, Wheathill won 4-2. 1 down.

Next out were Martin Hawkins and myself. This ended up as a match which both Martin and I described as one of the hardest matches we had played in.

The match contained 11 birdies. We eventually settled for a half after both pairs had chances to win on the last hole.

Third out were Rich Bartin and Geoff Monks. They raced into 3 hole lead , which they maintained for most of the match. They were, however, pegged back but held on to win 1 up.

Fourth out were Phil Bowditch and Martin Abbott. The match was a very close one with Phil winning the 13th with an eagle. This ultimately was the turning point and they won 2 and 1.

Last out were Norm Banfield and Hugh McGuire. Again a close match before eventually winning fairly comfortably 3 and 2.

This was a very good start to the campaign .

Well done team, Mendip Spring next, again, away.
