Sutton Coldfield 18.3.19 - Results

prev next

I was most fortunate at the weekend; Twickenham on Saturday for the England Scotland match and golf at Sunningdale on Sunday (where I lost heavily!)

We were in the south stand at Twickenham and saw all the first-half England tries, right under our noses. 

With the score at 31 nil,  we resigned ourselves to the fact that we would not see much action in the second half. 

How wrong we were!  Scotland scored five fabulous tries, right under our noses again and England only managed a 38 all draw in the last minute.  

Needless to say, there were a lot of very happy and merry Scotsmen enjoying the post-match revelry.  Apart from one, who we met in a pub in Hounslow that evening;  he was watching the highlights on the TV,  with his head in his hands because at half time, in disgust at his team’s performance, he had walked out of the stadium and ripped up his ticket !!

The warmer weather welcomed us to Sutton on Monday and a small shower later in the day did not dampen the spirits of the 96 players.

The green staff had ironed the greens, which caught out many who were unused to speed at this time of the year.  As usual the course was perfectly dry. Furthermore, I am also delighted to report that the damage, caused by vindictive motor cyclists in January, was repairing well and did not effect the enjoyment factor.

I was most impressed to see Nick Gould wielding a good old-fashioned Slazenger wooden-headed driver, and even more impressed to see he had a full set of Slazenger blades in his bag; I think he must have got them as a twenty-first birthday present.  However, given that he only came in on six holes to contribute to a team score of 57 it will be interesting to see if he has the same equipment next time out?

  • Graham Castle won nearest the pin on 5 and canned his put for a 2
  • Chris Johnson won nearest in two on 10 and just managed to get his put in the bunker!
  • Martin Gadsby rolled back the years to hit the longest drive on 14

Warwickshire County President Elect, Mark Reynolds had two 2’s which greatly helped his wife Deborah, together with Matt and Angela Harrison, to fifth place on a count back with 81 points

Derek Pedley’s team were fourth, also with 81

Despite having lost a shot for previous wins, Tim Worley and John Showell made a valid contribution to the Leisure Boys team score of 85.

Also on 85 but a better back nine, was Aiden Travers, Graham Johnson, Ian Jones and Nick Turner

First on the podium with 88 was Steve Jennings, Javier Negron, Barrie Hall and Neil Riding.
