So you may have heard , we won, and by a pretty safe margin – Well done to every one & thanks for your support.
Have a look at the score sheet below – You will notice we did not even have enough 1 pointers to give away in the 12 best of 15!!
I think what this shows is the Swashbucklers absolute dominance of Stableford over the over swindles – I suspect this is due to the way we run our swindle handicaps (and of course how we choose our team)
Here is to sunshine golf!
Well done to all, and in particular Sean, whose methods have completely turned our swindle around, he’s done the same at club level too. As Lee said, there is no doubt our swindle is the best by far, you only had to listen to Stu Mass in the bar yesterday, whose praise for our swindle was never ending, I felt for him actually because he had worked so hard himself and felt so passionately about his swindle winning. He could not say enough about our lot and it’s further proof that opening our doors and inviting new members at the rate we have was 100% right, always assuming they pass the ‘not a complete toss pot test’.
Well done to all, I am determined to make this year’s team.
Phil sums it all up. Think we all agree that special thanks must go to Sean for his captaincy, patience… and spreadsheets. We proved to be a well-oiled and slick machine which I’m sure the other Swindles either cursed at, swore at… but I’m sure underneath it all, admired! Phil did a cracking job with the cards for each round, and on top of the dresscode and beanies setting us apart it was only our Swindle table which was heaving with cakes and chocolates at the start of each round.
Best results on the day were led by the Stableford scoring “robots” that are Jim and Lee. Jim knocking his final pitch to inches whilst Lee had enough lead to casually put his 3W into the water on the 18th. Max did his usual “I’m waiting for an audience” for a spectacular long iron from the far rough over the water to the 18th.
Final mention goes to Denzil who had the best “I used to play for Arsenal” expression during the team photo
