Henk and I played our 2nd round Swashbucklers KO game today, 2nd October.
Henk sent 2 e-mails saying he was stuck on the M25, arriving as the group behind got on the tee and worst of all, without any cigarettes!
The guys waiting laughed as they heard I was giving 16 shots. Any thoughts of Henk being put out by his rushed arrival were dispelled as he started like a train. After 5 holes I was 2 over par, level with my handicap and 3 down!
I clawed 1 back on 6 and we halved 7 and 8 to still be 2 down. Thereafter I managed to par 9,10,11,12,13,14 and 15 to win every hole and triumph by a flattering 5 and 3. My iron shots were poor but short game was bang on and managed to chip close every time I missed a green.
Henk’s game did go off the boil after a stunning start but I’m sure it didn’t help that every time it looked like he might get back in the game I chipped it stiff.
Very enjoyable game on a beautiful day. I can honestly say if Henk had maintained his early round form, I would have had no chance!
