Match report – LSGC Seniors v Honiton, away.
Another match that was originally scheduled for September, this back match was finally played on 17th October. With the seniors’ AGM taking place on 13th October, when I handed the captaincy to Rod, I had scheduled a holiday from the 15th and was therefore unavailable for the Honiton game. Bit disappointed really, as I enjoy the Honiton course and the food is always top draw. Captain Rod was also unavailable and therefore I was pleased when club captain John Williams offered to step in for me. Before I jetted off to the sun, I had picked the team for the day, based mainly on those selected for the original match and on paper we looked pretty strong :-
Match 1 John would be partnered by Tim Forward.
Match 2 Richard Bartin & Franco
Match 3 Dave Manning & Alan Webber
Match 4 Graham Brimble & Peter Hill
Match 5 Gordon Clamp & Gavin Baker
Match 6 Dave Kennedy & Stewart Thompson
A lot of experience, some good match play golfers, I was confident.
Not sure what went wrong. I didn’t get all the details, just an email to advise me we had lost! Apparently, at the post match meal, our captain John blamed poor team selection. Fair enough. I understand the Honiton golfers were most hospitable and a good day out was enjoyed by all. My thanks to everyone who took part.
