Saturday had the lot… fresh cold bitter sun, wind, sleet, rain… light snowflakes and big snowflakes (but just never settled). Jaggsy skipped the Swindle saying he was staying in bed eating bacon all day. He probably made the right choice.
Some very good scores in Saturday’s Stableford comp despite the conditions. Young Sam Allen came in with 41points (gross 78), with Swindlers taking the next three positions – Simon C, Lee Feez and Scottie “aye, find it on THE google Hew” Yule.
17 of us were out in the Swindle on Saturday. Lee Feez played in the comp as well and scored a very good 33points off of 1 or scratch but was pipped by a gleeful Stevie Mc by one lowly point. Afraid that is another cracking round mate winning nothing but a cut. Plus2 now is it Lee? Well done Stevie though. Tough conditions.
Sunday started out to be very bitter early doors, but did warm up to about 2 or 3 degrees from about 8am and even saw some loons finish in t-shirts. (The rest of us keeping 3 layers on). Fortunately it stayed dry but frosty, firm greens didn’t make life that easy as the day drew on.
Notable comp scores from the Swindle were Assif taking the overall with 39pts and Wayne coming in 3rd with 37. More good scores given the temperature we started out in.
