After two great wins, it was back to reality and a defeat at Rushmoor Park on Tuesday 2nd August. Despite a damp start, the course was in excellent condition however the greens were particularly difficult with gentle runoffs and pin positions. Dave Butcher & Martin Abbot were the stars and ran out winners by 3 /1 the rest of us started badly and fell away with;
- Mike Bowling & Rod Tucker losing 2/1,
- the two Johns (Williams and Whitehead) losing 4/2,
- Mike Poole & Steve Uzzell 3/1
- Glyn Ottery & Colin Hardaway unlucky loss with their opponents nicking it at the last and losing 1 down
- and finally Peter Hill & John Packett losing 4/2.
So 5/1 was the final score.
