Somerset Bowl Quarter Final – the Lads go Marching on!!!
Well what can I say! I’m extremely proud of the chaps that turned out on a wet and windy Sunday afternoon at Mendip Spring to compete against Fosseway for a right to face Bath in the Semi Final. Myself and Nick Northey were locked in a battle and 2 down after 11 holes with no more shots to give away, we won 3 on the spin and made a birdie at 16 to be 2 up with 2 to play and closed out our match 3 & 1. News filtered around thanks to our on course man in the know (J Williams), Gary and Kev maintained their dominance in foursomes winning handsomely 5&4, Rich Bartin and Hugh Mcquire unfortunately losing by a similar margin, so with new partnership of Norman Banfield and Wesley Allen plus Jamie Brodie and Chris Binding still on the course we were 2 – 1 up. Jamie and Chris were having a tough time of it in the tail match and 4 down with 5 to play, looking like the match would be squared up at 2 all, fortunately for us our ‘little’ superstar Wesley had the putter red hot and was holing putts for fun again! Norman and Wes were 2 up with 3 to play and within 50 yards of the par 5 16th when there playing partners duffed a couple of shots and conceded the hole and the match.
Well done team another great result! Looking forwards to a semi-final against Bath.
