Report from Day 3 at Minchinhampton
Must have been a Senior moment as things were closer than I expected! Had Devon beaten Dorset today then it would have been on count-back between us and them!! That’s what comes from having left before all the matches came in last night!!
However as it turned out Dorset triumphed yet again beating Devon 2-1 so our 2.5 - 0.5 win against Somerset was to no avail and we ended up runners-up for the 3rd year on the trot! Somerset were the unlucky wooden spoon winners (at least they still got a trophy to take home!) Devon were 3rd followed by Wiltshire and then Cornwall.
As for our match, Dawn Rimmer and Frances Lindley had nail-biting match clinching a half on the 18th hole, Caroline Shepherd and I managed a 2 up win despite my best attempts to lose yet another ball over the wall on the 16th and Pam Tozer and Corrinne also had a close battle but won out 2&1.
It was a great 3 days with some super weather. The Cherington course was in great condition and the greens super fast with some extraordinary pin positions on the last day. The Glos (Very) Old Spots played their hearts out and I hope our newbies Dawn and Ali enjoyed their first taste of wrinklies foursomes however it was not to be!
Next year we are definitely up for revenge at Torquay Golf Club in Devon from 30th Sept to 2 October.
Report from Day 2 at Minchinhampton and we were up against Wiltshire in the morning and Cornwall in the afternoon.
Against Wiltshire Corrinne Durber and Frances Lindley battled hard but lost out 4&3. Jan Pickersgill and Ann Manley played some really solid golf and won out 4&2 so it was all down to the last match of Ali Kelly and Paula Crabtree. It was a nail-biting match that went right down the wire on the 18th but a superb second shot on to the green pin high from Ali sealed the win 2 up.
In the afternoon Jan and Pam Tozer led the way and a stunning up and down at the 16th sealed the match as Jan, teetering precariously over a chip on the edge of the bunker, left Pam a 4 foot put which she slotted in for a 3&2win.
Ali and I decided to lure our opponents into a false sense of security by getting off to a slow start going 2 down early. Some steady golf followed and we turned things around finally storming home with a 5&3 win. Caroline and Frances had a real close fight and narrowly missed a put on 17 to take it back to all square. Unfortunately the opposition chipped brilliantly and sunk the put to take the match on the last .
Some great matches but with Dorset also prevailing in both of their matches we need Devon to do us a favour and beat them tomorrow and for us to beat Somerset to give us a shot at the title.
Report from Day One at Minchinhampton
We got off to a flying start against Devon as our newbie ( Seniors County champion of champions ) Ali Kelly and stalwart Jan Pickersgill took no prisoners posting a great score of 5&4.This was quickly followed by Louise Church and Paula Crabtree winning 4&2. Not wanting to be out done Corrinne Durber and Ann Manley then brought up the rear winning 6&4 . I had no sooner finished my captains meeting to find my team all walking back so I just have to take their word for it on all the spectacular shots they played!
The afternoon was a complete change of fortunes as we were up against the winners of the last 2 year’s in Dorset. Pam Tozer and myself had a bit of a love hate relationship with the rough and despite putting well we lost out 3&2. Paula Crabtree teamed up with another new comer in Dawn Rimmer and put up a really good battle losing out on the 18th. The last pairing of Ann Manley and Louise Church also battled well coming back from being down to halving on the last hole.
So won one lost one and it’s all to play for tomorrow against Wiltshire and Cornwall.
