The Seniors team played Oake Manor in the Scratch KO bowl at Enmore on Friday.
First out was Dick Butcher who was up against a 3 handicapper county player - a tough ask. Dick was soon 5 down and eventually lost 6 and 5. One down!
Next out was John Parkinson who played extremely well and was soon 3 up.
Third out was Martin Hawkins, playing a 5 handicapper. The match was very tight and always looked to be going the full 18 holes.
Fourth out was Mick Capps who was always in front in this match, eventually winning 3 and 2. Match all square.
Last out was Rich Bartin. Unfortunately Rich went 4 down early on and never managed to recover this gap. 2 -1 down.
Meanwhile John lost 2 holes on the trot and had to go down the 18th - a par 5. John hit a superb 2nd to within 4 feet of the pin! Match all square. 2 - 2 .
Martin meanwhile went 1 up on the 17th. On the 18th, he hit a superb drive over 300 yards (down wind, down hill!) leaving an 8 iron in, landing just short of the green before chipping the ball dead!
3- 2 win!! Great game .
We now play Bath at a venue and date TBC.
Well played all.
