An excellent result from our visit to The Dorset. In a very close match we finally won by 3 1/2 to 2 1/2.
Martin and I were up against it from Hole 1. When I rolled in an 8 ft putt for birdie I thought the least we would get would be a half however our 'friend' on the opposition rolled his in and promptly said 3 net 2 'I get a shot' That's how it went for the rest of the round.
Phil & Bill (got a nice ring to it!') won 7/6 with both players playing very well,and keeping us level.
Match 3 John W & Franco had a tough game and came through 2 & 1.Unfortunately Dave & John J. ran into a pair in form and lost 5/4. The two John's J.P. & J.R. won their match 1 up.Winning on the last green.
So with us 1 game to the good and pairing of Gavin and Colin all square on the 18th (they would have won it anyway) accepting an honorable draw, we won the overall match.
A big thank you from me to all you guys who made yourself available and traveled to The Dorset.
Mike Bowling Match Captain.
