LSGC Juniors Vs Wells GC
After a long wait we have had our first Junior match today, it was an away trip to Wells. Wearing our new team shirts the weather was good despite predicted heavy downpours. We have a new format for this season with 2 singles matches and 2 four ball better ball matches.
In our first singles match Haydn 'Legend' Gibson played a 20 handicapped player and despite giving alot of shots to the opponent he swept away his opposite number in a fantastic match play manner of a 6 & 5 win giving Long Sutton our first point of the season. The second singles match was Sam Agar against a 18 handicap player. He started well winning the first 2 holes then it went all wrong and despite being 5 down with 6 to play he pulled it back but Wells held their nerve to win the game 2 &1. It was nearly a brilliant comeback from Sam nearly getting a possible half.
In our 1st 4 ball match it was the pairing of Will Ross and Stacie Watts and having to give alot of shots to their opponents they played well together and won their match 2 & 1. It was a good team effort and another point for Long Sutton making it 2 - 1 with one to play. Then in our 2nd 4 ball match it was the combination of Sam Clarke and Cameron Barrett. They were also giving alot of shots but that did not faze the young pairing; they played in a great team effort romping to a brilliant 5 & 4 victory in their match and giving Long Sutton the winning margin of a 3 - 1 victory.
An important good start to the season.
Also congratulations to Will Ross and Cameron Barrett who had their club ties presented to them after the matches for playing over 10 games for Long Sutton.
Our next match is on the 16th June and is a home match against Wheathill GC so the team sheet is available for Juniors to confirm for the next game. Well played and see you all for the next match.
