Mixed bag of weather today – rain, wind and sun. Reasonable Swindle today for a comp weekend, 14 including Matt’s mate Tommo.
Not that easy to score especially on the front9 with rain and soggy greens to contend with.
Well, not easy unless you are a certain Matt Strong who smashed the Swindle with a hugely impressive 39pts hoovering up front, back and overall.
Even managed a grumble on the 18th, though this was to avoid any doubles on the card. Very well played, and the ‘buffer’ on his handicap means his Swindle only drops to handicap. Very canny.
Graham and I took on Scottie and Sharon in our fourball. Ropey play between us all, a couple long putts in rolled in by Graham and Sharon were of note but Graham and I rolled out winners by 3 on the 17th. Good game, if the golf remained largely uninspiring.
Simon wins KO 2016
Simon’s match report up in another post. It seems to challenge Mr Loveless’ in length and detail but I think Graham’s title of long-as3ed report is safe.
It came down to the last including a big lip out from Simon on the 16th and Jagglar rueing a few missed opportunities.
Well done Simon – a great win.
Trophy ceremony next week, hopefully Scottie and Assif can sort a 3rd/4th playoff asap.
2017 Knockout Draw made
Lee hung around after his medal round and the draw was made.
First out of the bag were the names of Felix vs Sean Savedra! Game on. Something like 42 players in the bag… most of them Al Sav’s mates it seems… but the draw was made. Jim playing Al Savs, Phil playing Jez Parfitt… and I cant remember the rest.
I’ve suggested to Lee that between us we put the Swindle sheet on a Google sheet so we can both update it and feed it into a webpage.
Show Lee the money
Lee’s still chasing some money from last year’s comp so please avoid being in his firing line by coughing up entry fees asap. More details to follow.
