Silver Friendly v Wheathill 16.6.13
Twelve doughty ladies met in the rain at Long Sutton this Sunday, despite the weather forecast and the fact that they all had demands on their time at home, it being Father's Day. Their aim was to play the second leg of their Friendly Silver Match, Long Sutton v Wheathill, 4BBB Matchplay with no shots...tasty!
The pairings were:
Carolyn Hird (12), Stacie Watts (14)
Helen Marsh (8), Annya Patten, (9)
Eliza Vail (17), Margaret Bennett (17)
Michelle Edwards (13) Judith Rowsell (16)
Gill Edwards (18), Joce Dunevein (20)
Jill Byrne (17), Janette Stewart (18)
Thankfully the rain clouds lifted and waterproofs could come off. As ever, home advantage shone through, Long Sutton winning 4 and 3, 3 and 2 and 4 and 3, the latter despite a putt for a win left short on the 5th, in front of an audience. Mortifying! The course looked beautiful and played well. The 10th green, now in play, was described as 'amazing'. Long Sutton's win left the two clubs honours even. All the ladies enjoyed the challenge and the tea and look forward to repeating the exercise next year.
Thank you one and all.
