A bit of news from the Champion’s Tour.
I played in their Club Championship yesterday for the first time, this being the first year my age qualifies me, hard to believe I know but there you go.
Mick Lossaso and Bob were there too. I had my Swashbuckler top on just to give us a bit of presence, shame I didn’t get on the podium although I sort of did…..
It was another beautiful day and I was paired up with Dennis Austin and Stephen Hayward, a great three ball, teeing off of the 17th, yellow tees, which was a surprise. Dennis and myself topped our first drives and didn’t really threaten the field from then on although Dennis did shoot 81 front 9 which did still give him a chance.
However it was not to be and it was won, gross and net by Terry Dye who shot an 83 off of 12.
There was a team prize though which I assumed we had no chance of winning and as they called out 2nd and 3rd place I said to Dennis ‘out of interest, what was our score’ and before he could reply, we were announced as the winners!! Unbelievable, I played fairly rubbish but once again maybe….my partners etc…it was though a blind draw, all done properly.
A great day and well done to Terry.
