Spring clearly here – with more growth on the course, weather bright and quite breezy. Wind especially strong on Saturday, and though it lessened a tiny smidge for Sunday it was chillier.
Clocks went forward early Sunday morning so a few Swindlers scheduled to be out early switched to late Saturday at the end of the comp.
No fireworks from Swindlers out in the comp on Saturday to report I’m afraid. Well that’s not true, I can highlight that Janine won the Ladies Stableford with 20points from Bohwon Kim. Two horse race but a win’s a win Janine! Nice.
Some decent scoring in the wind on Saturday. 38 overall took it, but young Sam Allen again scoring well on 35pts and our very own Alan Savs matching him.
Ritchie smashed the Swindle. Complete with very white Manilow slacks, his new putter and ‘stretch’ Ping 3wood were all behaving well it seems. 40pts on Swindle! Questions!
Our 4ball didn’t shine much, struggling with around 25pts each it seemed the Swindle had a collectively poor day with a standard scratch of 24! Oh dear. Cue some light bleating from some as looked likely that we’d be cut returning 25pts. Only to be raised to 26pts when another score had been missed. Phew.
Sunday’s comp returned a good Swashbuckler showing with 7 Swashbucklers in the top8 with Bubba Hance taking top spot with 37pts. Well played Rob. Bryan Hogben and Winkle coming 2nd and 3rd respectively with 35pts.
