A bit bonkers really for the start of the new year but yesterday’s mild weather for Sunday’s stableford comp saw quite a few in t-shirts for the first stableford of the year – albeit for a half a dozen holes.
Young Peter did very well coming in with 35pts off of 6 on Saturday – not many Swashies playing to threaten the top10. I’m awaiting Sunday’s results to be published, but Tom Beef Austin was in good shape when I left on 36pts. Rob Hance reportedly hit 23pts on front nine to maybe he kept it going. Will update later (or just swing over to MasterScoreboard to check).
Quite a bit of golf played by the Swindle over the Christmas and New Year. We’ve had a few heavy frosts (together with frozen greens), lots of rain, drizzle and heaps of fog … followed by some decent winter sun. I think all bar two or three Swindles were non-qualifying so seems like lots of people took advantage of the mild weather (and the chance to get away from family and/or work to play golf).
Ryder Cup starts again next week with Swashbucklers taking on the Early Birds on Saturday… Swashies have a lot to do!
