Seniors Bowl first round

We were drawn against Wells for the first round, the team which beat us in the 2011 final, a tough opening match!

First up were Rich Bartin and Alan Webber. They were up against a pair who were receiving 5 shots. After 12 holes they were 3 down - not looking good.

Second out were John Parkinson and Mike Poole (unbeaten in last years campaign) also giving quite a few shots. They were never really in trouble and went  on to win 3 and 1. Long Sutton 1 up

Third out were Martin Hawkins and Phil Bowditch, again giving shots, but went on to win very comfortably 4 and 2.   2 up.

Fourth out were Norm Banfield and Dick Butcher who were up against a very strong pair including the 2015 Seniors county champion. After a tight match the lost 2 and 1.  

Last pair  out were Graham Load and myself. Up against a strong pair (their 2011 winning captain) we went 3 up after 3 BUT.....after 12 holes they clawed their way back to only 1 down.

In the meantime Rich and Alan had squared their match, so all was in the balance!  Onto extra holes and they unfortunately lost the 19th ( Rich please note you still owe Alan 4 balls)

Match all square. 

Luckily I managed to find some putting form after Graham had put me in good positions and we won the next two holes to close out the match 3-2.

Well done team.

We now play Tickenham or Minehead in the next round
