More Swindle success!
Posted on behalf of Lee:
Sharon and I returned to the Mixed Open at Seaford Head having won last year.
A number of Surrey National members supporting the event as always. We assumed the weather would be like at home, very hot and sunny but were caught out. It was cold with a stiff breeze and a thick mist swirling.
Got off to a poor start with two 1 pointers followed by a run of pars and 18 points at the turn.
Let a couple go on the back and needed a par on the last for 36 points. Unfortunately a lost ball in the thick rough meant we had to scramble up and down for a double and 1 point. 34 points which I was convinced would not be good enough.
We were shocked to be told we were leaders in the clubhouse and even more surprised after dinner to be announced as winners!
A quick impromptu speech followed. Sharon now has a new golf bag, I swapped mine for a bunch of goodies from the pro shop.
Roll on next year and the hat trick!!
