Order of Merit final 2017

prev next

Fifteen gathered for a very good lunch of lamb shanks at Little Aston last Wednesday and all the assembled were obviously keen to preserve their concentration as I only saw one pint of lager consumed pre- lunch (apart from mine of course!!)

Little Aston was in lovely condition and, from the emails I have received, appreciated by all.

As you all know from the appeal for a player I sent out, Steve Andrews was doubtful of his availability,  following an operation on his throat.  In the event he was able to play but I am grateful to all those who offered to stand in for him; not least of which was Mark Atkins, who was very quick of the mark with a phone call to tell me he could play. During the conversation I heard a voice in the background and an unprintable exclamation from Mark.  

After a short silence I heard a very dejected Mark say “I can’t play now; I’ve just been told I have got to pick my mother-in-law up” 

“Oh that’s nice” I replied “I do hope you have a lovely day”. 

Mark still looked slightly aggrieved when he arrived a Walmley on Friday. 

The competition for the Teetours 2016 Tankard,  was a singles Stableford of full handicap.

It was tight at the top with the top five players separated by only 2 points.

10 handicap Matt Hickman just pipped Kim Hughes to the post on a count back to lift the trophy.  A deserved winner who, only one week beforehand,  was himself somewhat dubious about his availability, as his better half was due to have an operation on the same day.  Apparently she is ok and we wish her a speedy recovery because Matt is keen to go out and celebrate!

The 2017 Order of Merit will include all competitions between September 1st 2017 and April 30th 2018.  The final will again be played next Spring at Little Aston so I look forward to seeing you soon  - you’ve got to be in it to win it!
