3 Counties Winter Salva - Final round at Long Sutton 22.3.15

3 Counties Winter Salva - Final round at Long Sutton 22.3.15

We could not have asked for a better day to end the Winter Salva. As we teed off the wind dropped and the sun came out. No hailstone covered greens today. The course was set up beautifully but listening to the talk in the bar afterwards, the teams generally found it hard to cope with the greens. All appreciated their condition but those pin positions! If you were not below the hole, you were in trouble. You had to be dead accurate or the ball would slink past, gather speed and end up miles away at the bottom of the green, however softly you sent it on its way! Scores across the board were down. It really made you appreciate every point you entered on your card! We came in first on the day with 274, Folke second, 267, Wincanton third, 262 and Cannington last with 252. Our team did well in that we moved overall from last to second, beating Wincanton by one point, but we could not catch Folke who finished 18 points ahead of everyone. Their round on their own course, where they scored 43 more points than ourselves and 26 points more than Wincanton in second place, did for us all. This is the third successive year that Folke have won, which is probably why they did not remember to bring the Trophy with them!

Big thanks to all Long Sutton who played in the four rounds but special thanks to the team on the day – Steve Stopforth, Sam Clarke, Nigel Brighouse, Judith Fox, Sandra Ford, Sean Monaghan, Sandra Basford, Henry, Rupert, Ray, Tim Edwards and myself.

Congratulations to Gill & her team - winners of 3 Counties Winter Knockout

3 Counties Winter Knockout Final 8.3.15

Long Sutton and Cannington B made it through to the Final of the Winter Knockout.  A prize in itself.  The two teams met today on the Newton Course  and from their  elevated white winter tee position, battle commenced!  And it was quite a battle.  One of the Cannington pairs came up against Sandra Basford and Sean and found they had to give Sandra 8 shots…that match was decided on the 17th in Cannington’s favour.  Steve Stopforth and Henry were each giving 10 shots…too many in the end with steady Cannington players.  Other pairings had hardly anything in it and that is where Long Sutton came good, tussling it out and winning the vital 3 out of 5 matches and the Winter KnockoutTrophy for the first time. 

Thank you to everyone who contributed through the winter to make this possible.  Sorry we could not use Ray and the Mcraes in this last match…Ray came a cropper with the chainsaw and Mike fell off a roof!  Thank you to Richard Bastin for filling the void.  Hopefully both will be fit to play in the last round of the Winter Salva, at Long Sutton, on Sunday, 22nd March.  Please see the sign up sheet in the corridor.  We need a team of 12 that day…our task…to reduce the 10 points between ourselves and first place!

Today’s team were Richard Bastin and Timothy Edwards, Sarah and Steve Uzzell, Sean Monaghan and Sandra Basford, Steve Stopforth and Henry Edwards, Nigel Brighouse and myself. Previous rounds had included Steve Cousins, Tyler, Rupert and Sam Clarke.  Thank you one and all!
