3 Counties League – Home v Folke 28.7.18

Well played team!  A win, 3 ½: 1 ½.  It was quite something playing in autumn/winter conditions after weeks of blazing sun.  The leaves were blowing everywhere and the rain was so heavy we had to shelter until it eased.  Sandra and Mike playing in the last pairing had the worst of it and did well to halve their match.  Thank you to them and thank you to everyone for their efforts…Roy and Caroline, Will and Angela, Tim, Steve and Becky and Rachel and Robin.  We have a lull now until September, when we play Sturminster Marshall Home 1st September and Away, 15th September, by which time things will be even tighter at the top of the board.

3 Counties League – Away v Wincanton 21.7.18

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!

3 Counties Match Report

Glorious weather for golf!  Saturday, 30th June saw us playing Cannington B at home.  A First…not only was I early at the club, but I was actually there ahead of any Cannington players!  It gave me time to appreciate the Langport Lads’ banter...Such an innocent question…“When is a dress a frock?”  The team on the day brought in the maximum, 14 points…and Steve and Becky  won the Reserve game for us, (2 and 1).  Thank you to Angela and Dave, (6 and 4), Franco and Nigel, (6 and 5), Steve Stopforth with myself, (4 and 3), Sarah Uzzell and Roy Parmiter, (1 up), Sandra Basford and Mike Scoble, (5 and 4).

This Saturday, 7th July, saw us travelling to Cannington for the Away game, still in sizzling temperatures.  Cannington kindly brought the tee-off forward by an hour so that we would be in in time to watch the England v Sweden game while we ate.  Long Sutton played amazingly well…4 wins and 1 loss in the match and a battle to a loss in the Reserve Cup.  This gave us 18 points and Cannington 3.  Thank you to Tim and Steve, (5 and 4), Nigel and Franco, who played his socks off apparently, (8 and 6) , Ray and John Blackwell, who dove-tailed well, (3 and 2), Steve and Becky, (3 and 2), Rachel and Robin, who lost 3 and 2 after a battle against low-handicapped youngsters, and thank you to my partner,Rupert, who stepped in at the last and played a blinder, but we lost 2 and 1, not helped by my mixing up the 6 and 9 irons! …What if I had…?

Our next game is Saturday, 21st July, away at Wincanton…if you fancy yourself as John Daly or Laura Davies, seeing the ball sour up into a clear, blue sky, then rolling for miles, without a ditch in sight, then this is a date for you!  Please add your name to the sheet in the corridor if you would like to play.  Gill
