Lee hits the ‘big’ 2-5
With some quick thinking from Wayne, we managed to play off the 10th during Saturday’s comp morning, timing (just) our front nine through our prebooked Swindle times.
We had very heavy frost late during the night so the course/greens were completely white at the start, clearing only really at 11am, with some greens remaining very firm (not frozen) till mid or late round. We enjoyed a glorious winter’s day with a clear fresh day and sun breaking out.
Birthday boy Lee ran a sub-comp in the Swindle On Saturday with prizes. 2 best holes per group, wonby the first 4ball by a single point (Graham A, et al). The 2 3-balls found it hard to compete but thems the breaks. Many thanks to Lee for providing the prizes and happy birthday again Chief.
Jaggsy took overall, Chris back and I cant remember who took front.
Swashbucklers clean up on quiet Sunday Stableford
Very quiet Sunday comp – seemed like a small field with perhaps people put off by the ominous weather forecast. Scottie played a blinder with 37 points for Division 1 win pipping Simon on countback.
Our own mighty Dave Shirley took overall with 39points, and Sean taking 2nd in that Division with 37. Mushi and Graham grabbed the 2’s. Dave wipes the board with everyone only a couple of weeks from cleaning up in the last comp.
Special mention again to Dave who was celebrating his 47th Wedding Anniversary! 47!!! (Well celebrating by playing golf… before heading out in the afternoon of course!)
