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
