Saturday – Stableford Day 1 & Swindle
5 day pairs final was played between Phil & The Mass on Saturday, against the Pistols’ Danny ‘whats an Alarm Clock‘ Betts and Steve Atkinson. Phil and Stu eventually succumbing to Danny and Steve in the end. Congrats to the winners, commiserations to Phil and Stu.
The Stableford comp on Saturday saw more continued top form from Mr Lee The Feeez returning 37pts I believe after starting early in the day. Young Sam clearly excelled in some awful conditions and I heard that he came in 3under gross. Fantastic golf Sam and well done on the overall competition win. Let me add that a certain Dom Khan secured 2nd place overall… well done. Lets see that handicap tumble.
For our Swindle, we had 8 hardy souls turn up for the Swindle – other grizzled old faces currently sunning it in Portugal on the Jolly Boys tour. Very good warm up for Ian in the Swindle which saw him take another overall win with 37pts I think. A deserved win (and cut). Weather turned out to be just ok despite high winds and some short sharp showers. Storm Brian indeed. Greens receptive but there were some nasty conditions out there.
Sunday – Stableford Day 2 and more finals
Bit strange but in the slightly milder conditions on Sunday (no rain and still breezy, but definitely colder), our scores were a smidge below Saturday’s. Andy G had a great round taking the day with 39pts, and Jackson came in 2nd with 37points off plus1. Closely followed by our Al Gollampost with a very solid 36pts.
Ian wins Byron Cup
Another board title for the Swashies. A weekend of finals it seems and today Ian lined up against Joe in the 7day singles competition, the Byron Cup. I saw them playing the 18th as I left today and it still looked very serious. I heard this afternoon that Ian came in the winner after the first extra hole! Clearly a cracking match, congrats to Ian and well played Joe.
Pistols’ Dan wins Scratch Cup
Another final today, The Mass lined up against the Pistols’ Dan Donegan today in the Scratch Cup (singles matchplay). Stu was very humble in the clubhouse, commending Dan on a good win. Well played Mr Donegan.
