A certain Mr McIroy may well have marched to a thoroughly convincing Open victory today but the real story was not only Swashbucklers taking top 3 slots in Sunday’s Medal but a certain Mr D Shirley smashing the competition wide open with a cracking gross 85.
Dave’s 85 meant an awesome a nett 62!!! He was 6 shots clear from 2nd place Mark on a nett 68 and Waynebandit with nett 69. Healthy handicap cuts all round. Well done.
Playing in the group in front of Dave, on the 14th tee we were sharing the view of Dave’s tee shot to the 13th with the group on the tee and the group on 12th green. It hit the step on the green and worked its way back down to the hole amid shouts of ‘go in’! Finishing 12inches or so from a very expensive afternoon. Birdie was ‘harder to miss’ and Dave snapped it up on his way to a fantastic round.
Jim clocked a very good nett 70 to take third place in Saturday’s medal with Lee cracking the top10 in 8th.
On Saturday, Waynebandit Nowak cleaned up a the Swindle with a very healthy 41 points. Second consecutive sub 80 round in a week whilst still off 17. Hmmm.
During the week our Mr Snashfold had a titanic battle with Andy Gorman. Playing the Bryon Cup in the morning and the scratch match in the afternoon, the pair took both games to the 18th with Andy taking the Byron game and Lee the Scratch match. Cracking.
Hole in one
Matt Stock celebrated his 3rd hole in one with an ace at the Copthorne Golf Club near Crawley last week.
of the week goes to our Colin who turned up for Saturday’s Swindle without his golf clubs.
