Glorious weekend of bright sunshine. Saturday was a bit breezy, Sunday clouded over towards the end of the afternoon – but an absolute cracker for golf.
I think the big news of the weekend was Sean and Tracey taking the mixed winter pairs comp on Sunday against Bronwen and Dennis. I believe it was won on the 18th, I’d ask Sean to send over a few lines if possible. Another competition win for the Swashbucklers. Congratulations!
The Swindle scores however, were less inspiring. I think Saturday’s wind didnt help but Phil tucked away Saturday’s decent turnout with a measly 32 points. A win is a win! Janine took Sunday’s pot by 3 clear points with 36.
On Saturday, Matt Strong decided his sand iron would be happier broken in two on the 4th. The newly split in half sand iron(s) couldn’t be found to be asked for a comment. Sunday’s round involved a driver air shot and occasions of hitting his own foot twice on a downswing.
Sunday saw Graham, Denzil and Jerry head over to join Pritt at Bletchingly. A photo was received by Graham of Jerry drinking a coke after a game of golf. Very rare sight indeed. Probably had something to do with him meeting us in Worcester Park Saturday night and burning that candle at both ends.
Winkle and Brian C had a stormer home match against a pair from Mitcham on Sunday. Playing in a paired betterball comp for handicaps 13-18, we were behind the match and saw the Mitcham guys miss a tiddler on the 18th for the win. Stalwarts Wheddon and Chamberlain then look the visitors to the 22nd hole before securing the win.
Sunday also saw an amusing note on the side of the 6th green, I think from “Bubba” Rob Hance. It simply read “Rups took 17 to here”. Nice.
