Sunday 12TH Feb Ryder Cup The Originals V Bob’s Bashers
Final score… Bob’s Bashers 11 … Orginals 5
On a cold frosty morning with a bit of a breeze the draw was made having to make some changes from our great start. I still thought that we had a solid team. My number one pairing of Paul Daly & our Club Captain “CC” Loveless played against Geoff Russon & Greg Reid ( as CC was in a meeting after, Paul summed up the match as Graham ‘could have done better‘. They had a very hard 2 & 1 loss.
My second team the “undefeated” Yeti & BDJ… well I can’t be saying that again …as they also had a hard fought fight and lost 2 & 1 against a very wily Ralf & Stephen.
Team three a solid Bob Mac & our very own surgeon Mr Shuja played against James Liu & Colin Batterbal as Mushtaq put it ” it was a successful operation but the patient died”. Another win for the Basher’s 5 & 4.
Team 4 I thought was a cunning plan I would put Janine & Teresa out against James Carter & Keith Tipper and again another quote from Teresa ” we were up they were up but we were up at the wrong time “…. they again lost 2 & 1 so to that effect we did not get a point from the pairs matches.
I shall make this quick as they didn’t… Graham Adams beat Ali 4& 3 in the singles. And Denzil also beat “The Stud” Paul Delaney 4 & 3 also securing a tenner from them. Then I went out in temperatures below freezing to play Peter but unfortunately I peaked too soon winning the first and from then after chasing halves and not having a partner the only people that I could see was Mr slow and slower [ahead] and that Paul played very well I lost 3 & 2. That only leaves Bryan Hogben & Bob the Basher English their game was nip and tuck from the start the only halved match of the day.
In summary we all played well and just didn’t have the rub of the green, well done I am sure that we will do better in our next match , the after match post-mortem was yet again another success and this is why we play.
