The Seniors narrowly lose at Orchardleigh - 11th April 2017

Seniors Reports and News : The Seniors narrowly lose at Orchardleigh - 11th April 2017


The first team out was Captain Rod and Steve Uzzell who had a very close match which was halved on the 18th hole when Mike Norris missed his short  putt .

Game 2 had Alec Lyon, the Canny Scot, paired with Ken Jacobs; they had a very hard game against a very good Orchardleigh pair, both good 13 handicaps. Sadly though they lost but well played to you both.

Game 3 with Len Collin and  Richard Bartin, the Captains Bankers, and as always they did the job with a fine victory of  3&1.

Next was the pairing the crowd had all come to see, the Somerset Seniors Champion, Bill Bond, and Mike Poole; the Ant & Dec of the Seniors Section! They had the crowd spellbound and won 2&1.

Things were on the change and the Captain was beginning to think we might get something from the match.

Game 5 was Douglas Hamilton (just back from holiday in France) and Chris Hockey (just back from holiday in Cyprus).Whether it was too much Vino or Ouzo, or just Jet Lag we do not know but they lost 6 & 5. (my monies on the Vino as Douglas took his car to France) .

Game 6 saw David Kennedy and Peter Champness who could still win the match for us, but sadly lost 5&4 but well played to you both.

Result : Orchardleigh 31/2  Long Sutton 21/2

Thank you all for playing
