Before a few words on Jaggsy’s match against Assif today… let me just say
Graham Loveless and I played a match alongside the first KO semi-final where Jaggsy lined up against the wily Assif. Despite the graphic, our match was somewhat ‘friendly’ as we played a match ourselves to not put off the “main event” being played out beside us. In your face “CC”, ’nuff said.
I think Jaggsy and Assif would both admit that the golf wasnt sparkling from either of them – it was a match summed up by Mr Loveless accurately saying “who ever finished the hole won it!! Assif (aka Mr “Sandy”) found most bunkers on the course, sometimes twice on one hole. It wasnt his day as he rued some short putts. Jaggsy boomed a couple drives and put himself in good positions, Assif just came up short and they shook hands on the 15th.
According to the sheet, Matt is now waiting for Scottie/Bob match, the winner meeting Simon C in other semi.
Grubbster takes the win
After we shooed away his bandito horses, we congratulated Chris on taking the Swindle with an impressive 38points. (That wouldve been in the forties off club!) Well played mate. A fantastic 22 on the back sealed it, with something like only 8 putts on those back 9holes helped by 3 chip ins. A great performance.
Note on slow play
Been asked to again raise the issue of slow play – or to perhaps be more accurate… keeping up with the group in front! Matt (Stock) had a word with the whole Swindle today, reporting that Saturday’s round was too slow and we needed to all be aware about getting a shift on.
As it happened today, the whole Swindle was held up by two very slow 4balls of pay-and-play South Africans. Not good. This was felt especially by the group at the back, who also had their patience tested by the group in front (eeek, our group) as we had a couple of searches for lost balls on the back nine.
Despite waiting ourselves on most of the front nine, we just about lost a whole hole on the 15th and although we had a KO match playing, we couldve done more to keep up.
Can everyone please keep the pace up please – there are groups behind and consectutively slower groups makes it even more unfair for groups at the back. Being drawn out last should only mean a later finish time, not having it drawn out further by slower Swindle groups ahead.
