Senior Roll-Up 11 July


Match Result - Cannington  (Home)   - 25 July

Result: Folke win 5½ : 2½

It was a really good morning and the beautiful day meant it was a pleasure to be out there. As we'd only played Cannington  less than a fortnight ago there was plenty of banter as friendly rivalries were renewed and there was a lot of good golf played. It was good to see that both George and Ian were in fine competitive form and both won their matches - we all hope they can carry that form on to Saturday when they play their 6th round Daily Mail foursomes match at Honiton.


An excellent day was rounded off by one of Lisa's special ham egg and chips lunches and there were smiles and handshakes all round when we all left for home - all looking forward to the triangular match at Cannington at the end of August against our hosts  and Kingweston.

Cheers,

Mike

Congratulations to Bill Heybourne - winner of the July 11 Roll-Up. Nice to see him back in form after a difficult period where he struggled with his game. Is your golf coach taking bookings Bill?

Match Result

Cannington (Away) 3 July at 12:00 noon

After struggling to raise a team due to holidays, late start,  and other commitments we eventually arrived at Cannington with 5 pairs ready for an afternoon match in the July sunshine. In a sporting gesture by our Cannington friends, they donated another two players to us so six fourballs duly set off around the course.


After the usual refreshments and a hearty meal the scores were announced and Folke had won 4½ :1½ . Detailed scores are not available but rumour has it that our Daily Mail superstar lost but the surrogate pair from Cannington did the business for us with a 5&4 win. Well done boys and a big thanks to Cannington

Match Result

Charminster (Home) 15 July

Fourteen of our finest set out on a very warm and sunny Tuesday morning with the hope of exacting revenge on our friends from Charminster for the heavy defeat suffered down there earlier in the season. That is exactly what happened with only Captain Mike and Grahame Knight being beaten. There were excellent wins for our other six pairs with  good wins for Stuart Beardsley and Kevin (Lovin’ every minute of it) Thomas, Mark Maguire and Bill Heybourne (continuing his good form), Doug Butler and Richard Robinson, George Taylor and Keith Moore, and Paul Fletcher and Roy Brace . (See table)


An excellent morning coupled with the usual good natured banter between the two teams was completed with one of Lisa’s superb cold buffets followed by apple pie and ice cream and much appreciated by both teams.We look forward to resuming “hostilities “ with Charminster next season.
