Friday 11th August

Royal Lakeside

It’s been a quiet week with both games Monday & Wednesday just one group each day a 4 ball 7 a 5 ball not worth a write up’ So it was a nice change to have a reasonable number today for Royal Lakeside. 3 groups 11 players. And after last nights rain we set off praying for better weather and so it was to be, When we got there the weather was perfect if a little warm on the back nine, The course as always in perfect condition, and all this suited Stan Smith on his last game with us before returning to work in Australia. Starting off slowly with a double on the 1st hole followed by a par for 4 pts on the next then a blob on the 3rd hole and 20 pts on the next6 holes for out in 26 pts,He did not let up on the back with 15pts on the next 5 holes then 1 pt the next 2 holes and 7 pts the last 2 holes 49 pts, Welcome to his new handicap when he returns. In 2nd place just 10 shots back Graham Buckingham off the silver tees with 39 pts one ahead of Stan Stewart who at last managed to beat the poor old Donkey by 1 shot, he also got a couple of near pin’s, Geoff Bracegirdle on his 1st game back with us got the other near pin, Only 3 players did not play to their handicaps
