May Bank Holiday Sunday swinging sticks in sunny (not really) Wales – what more could you want. After hearing that Lee had decided to leave the society left us with sadness – an early drive to North Wales with our newest member, Matt Naylor was a good start to the day. Welcome young Naylor – I’m sure you’ll be called a bandit soon.
The first tee had a few members discussing who would be the first to duff it into the ditch or into the deep rough down the left side. Mike Bower did his best with his flop shot with a hybrid that went just over the ditch and rough.. Being the penultimate group to enter the fray, I was looking forward to a good round of golf and a laugh with Col, Derek and Wadders – and it was. A couple of highlights of the group were Col duffing a chip straight into a ditch before the green then proceeding to play the exact same shot moments later. Derek about to tee off on the Par 3 17th before two pedestrians walked along the path across the fairway – Derek saying jokingly “I’ll try and hit them” and then nearly did with a near shank shot. Wadders is quite fond of the sand and went in nearly every bunker possible. Then managing to hit his ball into the face of the bunker which spun out and landed straight into the ditch. I, overall played my best ever round of golf and managed to score 45 points which I couldn’t be happier about. Everything just went well today and after a few years of playing since my last monthly win – today was the day.
The fairways and greens ran nice and quick which was advantageous if you like to run the ball low. The course was in decent condition and was a nice challenging course all round.
A mention to Dave Hadden who played a great game today shooting 44 points but unfortunately didn’t win. Sorry Dave! But 44 is a fantastic score non the less.
Thank you gents for a great day as always and I’ll see you at the next event at Shaw Hill.
Thanks and congrats to our winner, Zach Jones
