[Playing at Surrey National last weekend…] Me and Jez were looking forward to a hard fought match against the two lads who beat Hew & Al.
Well it turned out one of them couldn’t make it so it was 2v1, which I personally found a bit uncomfortable. Sam 4hdcp played and played very well indeed. Long off the tee and no real weakness to be seen.
He won the 2nd with a par but Jez birdied 4 to level the match.
I birdied the 5th and Jez net birdied 6 to go 2 up.
Both 3 putted 7 to gift one back and he birdied 8. Jez won 9 with nett par so at the turn… 1up!
Jez won 11 with a nett par then Sam blew up on 13 to make us 3 up. He birdied 14 and halved 15 to make us 2up going on 16.
Me and him halved 16 but Jezza (with a deft chip) made his 4 for nett 3 to win 3&2.
Sam was a top competitor and made us work for it all the way. My back is still sore from carrying Jezza but I’m used to it by now. Really looking forward to West Hill and hopefully I can bore the sh*t out of you about that as well.
P.s any stories from jez about him carrying me are fabricated and blatant lies!!
