It was a tricky week for the Captain Dinker Hinks. Rumours around the village were of a coup to get him out of the job following a dismal run of form but like his hero Arse Wenger he stood firm in the face of adversity.The Captain’s first master stroke was to call in a top surgeon from Guys hospital to perform surgery on Furball & Mitch the village Siamese twins. Following a long but successful operation the boys were finally split from each other. The second master stroke was to separate himself from the out of form Blatchford.The first task of the day was to tackle another, now famous Folke buffet breakfast - a feat both teams managed with ease.

So onto the first Tee and it was Blatchford and Terrence Trent Darbo who was wishing he was lucky, to lead the Folke revival. Darbo started with two straight pars however the opposition did the same then won the third and fourth holes to send the home side two down early doors. However by the turn the home pair had pulled level and then Terrence started showing off with a birdie and net par up eleven which put the Folke charges two up. A ding dong battle ensued and by sixteen it was all square again. This is where Blatchy stepped in and showed his class nailing a 15 footer across the green to put the homies one up - a lead they then held onto to seal a 1 up win in what was a very close match that could have gone either way.

Second out was Dean Furball still nursing scars both mentally and physically from his recent separation from Mitch. Luckily for Furball he was paired with the east swinging Silver Fox Marshy. Some recapturing the form of his youth Furzey came back to the clubhouse claiming his “best golfer in the club”  tag is returning to him,  however the opposition dobbed him in saying Darren did the damage in what was a tremendous 6&4 victory for the boys.

Third out was the finest thing to come out of Wales since Nessa & Smithy - Taff Lewis. He had the unenviable task of carrying Skinny Love and carry he did following a steady front nine the Welsh Wizard let rip with a storming back nine littered with birdies to seal another great home win 5&4. Well played Gareth, I hope you are allowed to stay in the country post Brexit.....Maybe we can send Skinny in your place :-)

Fourth on the Tee was the lively "Ls'" Lilly & Lloydy as bubbly as ever. Everybody knows when these boys play well as they can be heard all over the course and that was the case this week as they bought home another solid win for Folke 6&5

The final Pairing in the League match was Sparky Harvey fresh back from holidaying on Lake Homo paired with the other half of the village twins and funnily enough nursing the same scars as Furball Giant Mitchstacks. As with the pairings before them they were in fine form and never gave their opponents a moments peace coming home with a superb 4&3 win.

In the Reserve  J.Harring Trophy match was the nervy Captain Village Hinks alongside the club stalwart El Bow, The Captain’s nerves must have got to him as he was seen to be hitting more wood then the resident Folke Woodpeckers. El Bow must have been on top form as the pair bought home the biggest win of the day 7&6,top work boys.

A great atmosphere in the clubhouse after the home side avenged a recent defeat to Charminster in fine style 5-0, but great credit must go to Charminster who played their part in an enjoyable day that leaves the Skipper alive to fight another day!

Thanks must go to Steve,Lisa and Andy who as always play their part in making the day as good as it always is and also to our Captain Dinker Hinks who takes the "Banter" in his stride and does such a great job getting the boys together....don,t ask him how much the surgeon was though!!

Quote for the day...A bad attitude is worse than a bad swing....

Have a good week
