If happiness and confidence can come out of a loss, then after this match we had both! A 6 – 4 loss to Hertfordshire is as close as we’ve been to them in many, many years. The previous two encounters have ended in 8 – 2 losses, and they anticipated an equally big score again.

Aspley Guise was in great condition, with fast, true running greens, and I provided our guys with notes on where the pins were and the dangerous areas to avoid. Hopefully this helped, even if it saved one shot!

As usual, we went into our first league match with confidence and enthusiasm. We had a strong team out and it showed early on. We unexpectedly welcomed back Phil Sutton, who can only strengthen our team going forward, and he led us off with a convincing victory. Out at number 4 was our other main man, Paul Wharton. Paul played some sparkling golf to demolish his opponent 6&5. The match was tight with Colin Moody again not getting the run of the ball and losing a very close match. My opponent had an off day and proved that having home players in the team helps, as I came in winning 5&4. By now we were 3 – 3 and things were hotting up! (shame it wasn’t the weather!) Charlie Snelling took another point for us with a great 4&3 win, after Vice Captain John Haines lost another close match. It was now 4 – 4 and we knew that Peter Mott’s match was close. Sadly, his opponent closed it out on 18th green and with last man Phil White going down, our thoughts of a well deserved draw were dashed.

At the end of the day, a really good performance that proves, with a bit of good fortune, we can mix it with the big boys! Well done everyone, a great team performance.

Seniors Captain
