On Thursday 21st April 2016 Long Sutton Seniors, under the Captaincy of Rod Tucker,played against the Isle of Wedmore .
The 1st team out were Dave Butcher (20) and John Thomas (16) unfortunately they lost 5 & 4.
Dave played the wrong ball out of the bunker and gave himself a 2 shot penalty which lost them the hole, only to find out from Andrew, that all he needed to do was replace the ball in the bunker and replay his ball without penalty. - (information for us all). Without the penalty, he won the hole with a par.
The 2nd team Alan Webber (12) and Chris Thayer (18) won their match 2 & 1.
The 3rd team was match Captain Rod Tucker (9) and Douglas Hamilton(12) against John Russell (7) and Wedmore Captain, Mike Tanswell (18) it was a very tight affair with the Long Sutton 1 up at the turn. Rod and Douglas dovetailed very well and only dropped 1 shot over the next 8 holes. It was a very close game and until Mike Tanswell tried to hit every tree on the 16th it could have gone either way, but Rod and Douglas won by 2 holes.
The 4th team was Malcolm Dennes (18) and John Packet (18) who were comfortable winners
finishing 6 & 4. Well played to you both.
The 5th team Gavin Baker (18) and Len Collin (20) had a good match against a strong Wedmore pair but with Gavin and his new “Bionic Bits” starting to work, they came in winners with a 4 & 3 Victory.
The 6th team was Bill Cambell (16) and Peter Champress (27), who are both fairly new to matches,
lost 3 & 2. Thank you both for playing and better luck next time.
The Final score was Long Sutton 4, Isle of Wedmore 2
Thank you all for Playing.
