That was the question bellowed out to Jezza on Sunday as he returned from some time away with a duff ankle. Welcome back!
A scorching day on Saturday saw temperatures leak over 30degrees. Spanish ‘plume’ indeed. We were even blessed with the sight of Mr Graham Adams’ legs as he broke out some new shorts!
Frank took the Swindle on Saturday with 38 points overall, coming on the back with a very impressive 22points. Helped in large part to an eagle on the 17th as he holed a pitching wedge after one bounce. Cracking shot.
Jackson was untouchable in the Medal, carding a 66…6under the course. That takes Jackson from scratch to plus1. Awesome golf. Our own Mr Lee Awesome Feasey had a truely fantastic round of 73, just one over the course.
Very very impressive Mr Feez well done. Unanimous requests were made for a hole by hole account similar to the match report please!
Sunday was a less hot but still a sticky and humid day. The forecasted rain came down just after 12, drenching those on the back nine till it cleared mid afternoon.
Jezza was back after a crook ankle, and faces all gathered after various trips away and holidays. Good crowd in the bar afterwards to compare stories.
Swindlers were out from early on. I came in with nett 70. Happy with that but rode some luck on the back nine holing a thinned chip that would’ve cleared green and at least one bunker, somehow ending up in the hole on the 13th for par. I must’ve taken some of Jez’ luck as his well hit 5iron approach to the par5 12th, saw him hit the tree and finish right behind the tree trunk above the green. His next chip along the bank to roll on to the green, took a funny bounce and he only succeeded in finding his ball tucked up behind the next tree trunk along. Meanwhile Stevie in the group behind did his best to knock his ball past us at every opportunity.
Sean sidled in with a net 69 to take clubhouse lead and another good round from Scottie matched him. Both were pipped by James Murtagh who took the Swindle fivers with a nett 68 in some challenging wet conditions on the back nine.
Jim had a cracking round, hardly missing anything on the greens. Holing a 12footer on the last returned a nett 71 and grabbing a handicap down to 9.4.
Henk humbly admitted to a 10 on his card. Good work fella. Fantastish!
However Mr Dave “Surely Not” Shirley was not to be outdone and carded a 10 on the par3 7th. Oops Dave!
Picking Stevie up froim Bazza’s the other day, I noted a certain Barry Bone Paving Specialists, Wallington‘ transit in the driveway.
Is it just me or does the likeness need a tad more work?
