Colin’s Golf Bar 13/08
With 3 cancellations before we left it was a small group of 6 to take on Silky Oak today .The weather was perfect and the course in excellent condition and with a 3 ball and a 2 ball in front of us we all hoped for a quick round and so it was to be on the front nine just over 1 ½ hrs but halfway round the back 9 ,we were all held up by a Korean 5 ball, this did not affect the scoring just a lot of hanging around (maybe Donald can help out). 2 x 3 balls the 1st Steve Coghlan, Gary Emmett & Geoff Bracegirdle . Steve made hard work of his new Hcp but after a blob on the 1st hole 20 pts on the next 8 holes, but then the big collapse on the back 8 pts, Geoff also struggled on both nines with 12/13 for 25 pts, But Gary on his favorite course with 23 pts on the front to finish 41 pts, In the 2nd group Stan Stewart , Tony Cliff & the Donkey, Stan took the honors on the front nine with 21 pts Tony & Colin 19 pts a piece things remained tight till the end when Stan had his usual crumble and the Donkey always behind finished par ,birdie for 41 pts to take 1st place on countback, Stan has promised to buy him a new cap.
