FOOTNOTES

1. 25 players turned out on a bright and breezy day at THE SPRINGS. Considering that the greens had just been hollow-tined and heavily sanded, and that the gusting wind caused problems, there were some excellent scores with over half the field scoring 30 points or more.

2. CTC successfully retained their team trophy, with a comfortable win over BTC, particularly as the only BTC pair to win had been seconded from CTC. I am confident that we’d do even better on a tennis court, as none of the BTC players could remember when they last played tennis.

3. Congratulations to the Individual Winner, ROSS RICHARDS, from Mapledurham GC (and the son of CTC member Gail Slinger), who promised to engrave the Trophy for the last two years (shame on you Gary Walker), and to return next year (this time for CTC) to defend it.

4. The cards of a couple of the lower order scorers seemed not to reach me, (and Cam Bellamy failed to show up at all), so a little artistic licence has been used where necessary. However two particular incidents are worthy of note. First, Rory Andrews, whose outward half yielded 11 points, scored a spectacular birdie 4 on the 9th hole, worth all of 5 points. So ecstatic was he, that he failed to score a single further point on the remaining nine holes (which must have caused partner Louise Purton much grief, and no doubt explained their match result). And second, James Shaw’s wondrous 3 points have to be explained by his cob-webbed red leather golf bag, full of 30 year old clubs, which hadn’t been used for 20 years, and the fact that the soles of both his shoes fell off during the round, hence the fact that he limped home, last but not least. Full marks for perseverance James.

5. Challenge to be resumed next year, hopefully with a proper beer afterwards.

Adrian Hatt, Chairman CTC.
