After a fantastic start to the season, our team were keen to play the home match, a Four ball, Better ball, match play game, verses Folke.
Little did we expect to be playing in the middle of the storm "Hanna", with gusts of 60-70 mph winds and heavy rain showers recorded across the country.
How are we going to keep our trollies upright let alone hit a low straight ball?!!. We all thought we were crazy playing!, at least we had the course all to ourselves, but in the words of Freddy Mercury" the show must go on", and our team did just that! another great win result points 17-4 again.,
This week the trophy match game was played by Sandra Basford and Caroline Hunter with a 4-2 win.
Team on the day Will Bingham and Tim Edwards lost to the" wind" 4/2, Gill Edwards and Angela Baker W, 3/2, Guy Willis and Ann McRae W 2/1, Valerie and John Thomas W 3/1 and Steve and Becky Cousins won with an amazing 7 &6
Well done team!, All a bit battered after the game but whispers of can we make it three in a row? could be heard in the after match chatting.
Our next match : May 11th home to Bulbury Woods.
Hooray the sun was shining, not a wet weather item in sight this week. "Can we do it ?"," yes we can!" Another win for us but not as many points this week :12 to Long Sutton and 10 to Bulbury Woods, who have been promoted to Division One and not known to us - so this was an interesting game.
The Three Counties is a League which encourages Men, Women and Juniors playing together to enjoy match play in a friendly competition with two Divisions of six teams. It was lovely to see so many talented junior players playing for Bulbury Woods. Their team included a 15yr old young lady Rebecca playing off 10, Aaron off 9 and Jessica off 14 all commenting after the match how much they enjoyed the course, what good condition it is in, and will be back to play again.
Our team this week -:
Sarah Uzzell and Nigel Brighouse with a very close game going to the 18th managed a draw. This match had been drawn by the away captain to be the Trophy match, so well done both.
Dave and I both played reasonably well, but the opposition out played us and we lost 6/5.
Caroline Hunter and Guy Willis won 3/2, John and Valerie Thomas won 3/2, Steve and Beckie Cousins won 3/2 and, Sandra Basford and Brian lost 5/4.
Well done team.
Our next match will be our first away fixture - lets hope it goes as well. We are away to Folke May 25th - brunch 12md with first tee 1pm. If you would like to join us playing in the three counties, just let me know either by adding your name to the list in the corridor or email me, firstname.lastname@example.org
I would like to welcome Dylan Andrews to the team next week.
