We played our very own Carnoustie this Saturday at Wincanton. I just wish I had had their shots in my armour: twice out of position, now faced with an approach over trouble on to skid-fast greens, with blackthorn hedges waiting, arms wide, yards off the back of the green. How do you do that backspin? Bye bye ball! Mike Scoble and I halved a very tight match. Tim and Ann McRae romped home with a win, Steve and Becky likewise, meaning the match ended 2 and a half, 2 and a half…8 points to Wincanton and 11 to Long Sutton. Thank you to Angela and Dave, who were not so fortunate on the 18th, and Rachel and Robin, who had never played the course but are game for a challenge and put up a good fight. We have now moved up to second place in the table. Katharine and Mike Stringer played in the Trophy slot. Katharine was particularly nervous before teeing off as they had not played for 3 Counties before and with a max. hcp of 28, she was losing 2 shots before she started. All was well though. Reporting in, Mike said …’We dove-tailed’. Music to my ears! They won 3 and 1, moving us to top position at the moment, but still a way to go. Next match - this Saturday, Home v Folke with a later tee-time of 2.20. We will meet for food at 1.30. Please sign the sheet in the corridor if you would like to play. Needless to say, we need a good result!
