3 Counties Winter Knockout 28.11.15 v Cannington B

3 Counties Winter Knockout 28.11.15 – Long Sutton had to play the first round of the Winter Knockout this weekend against Cannington B.  Just weeks ago, we would never have dreamt that we would be without Mike McRae for this match and it goes without saying, how sorry we are and how we were thinking of both Mike and Ann on the day. 

I am glad to say that golf-wise it was a good day…the bad weather was late in arriving, all the games were good humoured and nerve-rackingly tight!  Spider, Cannington’s Captain, had to take on Sean and Nigel singlehanded in the end.  He showed me his team list with 7 names rubbed out.  He had still been 2 players short that morning but had managed to rustle up one more…Lenny, who had been in Bridgwater Morrisons when the call came, planning food for a lazy weekend: Spider soon changed that!  With short daylight hours, we just managed to fit the last game in.  Ray and I held on to our one hole lead against Lenny and Harry and won on the 18th.  If we had had to play on, we would have struggled for light beyond one more hole.  Our win made it a win for Long Sutton, 3 and 2, which means we now play Folke on a neutral course.

Well done and thank you team – Tim and Carol Paterson, Angela and Dave, Sean and Nigel, Steve and Sarah, Ray and myself.  Watch out for details of our next match.

3 Counties End of Season

3 Counties End of Season

Saturday, 19th September was a beautiful day…clear, blue sky, autumn colours and not a sound as each of the 3 Counties pairs, Wincanton and Long Sutton teed off.  Usually, the banter flows: not this Saturday.  The silence was worthy of the Ryder Cup.  This was a critical match.  Wincanton could not win the division, but they could peg us back to a draw.  I need not have worried.  The team won 4 games to 1 and on Saturday, 10th October, Freeman Trophy Day at Mendip Spring, we received the Division One Winners Cup for the first time!  Well done Long Sutton.  As you can see from the photo, we won well through the year…Winners Winter Knockout, (again for the first time), Second in the Winter Salva, Winners Div. 1 Summer League, Runners Up Joe Harring Trophy and  Sandra Ford won the Captains’ Cup.  On the day, Nigel Brighouse was our Best in Team and Sarah Uzzell won the Ladies Longest Drive.  A good day at the end of a good year.  Thank you to everyone for your efforts and team spirit throughout the year…not only did you bring home trophies, you added drama, humour and made it downright fun.  Keep it up!

I hope I have not missed anyone out.  My thanks go to Angela and Dave Baker, Steve and Sarah Uzzell, Steve Stopforth, John Jeanes, Nigel Brighouse, John and Pat Whitehead, Ray, Tim, Rupert and Henry Edwards, Judith Fox, Sandra Basford, Sean Monaghan, Ann and Mike McRae, Sylvie Coache, Rod Tucker, Luke and Adrian Nutland, Jony Tulk, Tyler, Mike Poole, Carole Paterson, Sandra Ford, Haydn Gibson, John English, Sam Clarke, Frank Penny, Nick Dennis, John Paterson, Kev Purdy, Richard and Angela Body, Rich Bartin,  and last, but not least, Graham Holloway!

The cycle continues…We play Cannington A in the first round of the Winter Knockout.  Look out for the sign up sheet in the corridor.  New faces welcome.

The 3 Counties AGM will take place at Long Sutton on Wednesday, 4th November at 7.30.

3 Counties match v Yeovil at home Saturday, 5th September.

3 Counties match v Yeovil at home Saturday, 5th September.

Here’s another nice mess I got you into!...Confusion reigns in 3 Counties match once it is realised the teams are playing off the wrong shots.  It would have made a good film.  Myself (away) asking Sandra to Captain what we want to be a smooth match against Yeovil, as both of us have previously sent our teams out in the wrong aggregate order.  I did it at Yeovil and Yeovil did it to Wincanton.  This time we would get it right, or would we?  We managed to struggle over the usual hurdles as far as getting a team together at all goes, finally filling the last slot Friday evening and even avoided the pitfall of a change from the usual tee time, but then Sandra asks “Is it full hcp?” As we have been talking about the playing order and aggregate, I think she means do we use actual hcps or full hcps to work out the aggregate, so I say “Full hcp.  I only go into actual hcps when two pairs are on the same aggregate.  Angela and David and Richard and Angela Body are both 38 this week, so I worked out the aggregate with the actual hcps to see which is the lower.”  No!  Can you hear the alarm bells?  She was meaning Full hcp difference!  The wagon has started to roll out of control down the hill!!  Will someone stop it in time?  

On the day, Mark, Yeovil Captain, has put himself out last as he might be late and has Roger as Acting Captain. Sandra has the cards all ready and she and Roger fill them in.  Mark (Yeovil Captain) has arrived but leaves things to Roger.  Oh dear, the tension mounts.  Roger and Sandra check that the aggregates are right (yes) and in order (yes) and the shots (?yes?).  All looks well and the cards are handed out.  Sighs of relief from Sandra and Roger and play starts.  Ray and Carole are out first and Mark last.  What amazed me was that no-one queried their shot allocation before play. There’s always someone.  I hand you your card.  You look at it, purse your lips and frown and then ask for an explanation.  Why not today?  I suppose you know when it’s me you need to check my maths and actually, this time, it was a good number of shots!  Even so…the low handicappers and experienced players, giving away all those shots?   Eventually, in the course of the match, Mark realises the mistake and tries to make people change.  It can’t have helped his game trying to catch people on different holes.  Sandra and Ann have barely started so not a problem for them, but Ray and Carole are on the last holes.  Uproar in the clubhouse as everyone comes in...I can only imagine!  I am still not sure who played off full and who off ¾ and who, like Ray and Carole had their card changed from one to the other, but at the end of the day the Captains reached an agreement and the sheets were signed off.  The match was halved giving 11 points to Yeovil and 8 points to Long Sutton, bringing us up from second to first in the division at the moment.  I can only apologise and am sorry the wagon trundled headlong all the way to the bottom of the ravine.  That evening I had a text from Carole to say Ray played well and has a lot to tell you.  I was thinking Hole in One?  He had better not have before me.  I could never have dreamt what actually happened.  The 3 Counties is far from dull!

Our last match is against Wincanton on Saturday, 19th September.  First tee 1.00.  This will be exciting.  Long Sutton on 85 points and Wincanton 81.  Playing for the Cup.  My pulse rate has just gone up!  Sign up in the corridor.

ALSO – Sign up for the Freeman Trophy Day at Mendip Springs.  Saturday, 10th October.
