We were fortunate again with the weather in this year’s Winter League Division finals . Theses took place on Sunday 10th April between Div 1
William Tansley & Andy Williams who played Rob Palframan & Nathan Smith . Div 2 Rob Spencer & John Lynn played Colin Tweedie & Paul Beckett
I was lucky enough to ref the division 1 final and together with the C team Captain Les Stewart who kindly chauffeured me was treated to some fantastic golf played in a competitive but friendly spirit. Long drives, great iron shots and some great scrambling kept the game evenly matched for the first few holes , birdie 3s on the 4th hole from Andy and Nathan still kept things level.The game was never more than a hole up to anyone with this changing on several occasions until the 12th where the score was 1 up Andy and Chuck , despite Rob seeing yet another of his puts roll inexplicably over the hole for his birdie, a par wasn’t enough to beat Andy’s with a shot , although Chuck was only a couple of feet away for his birdie which he promptly pocketed. This is when the game momentum shifted towards Andy and Chuck , holes 13 & 14 going their way to put them 4up with only 4 to play . The 15th saw both Andy and Chuck on the green in regulation both securing pars meaning Rob ,who’d just gone past the back edge of the green had to whole out to keep the match alive . Yet another cling film moment saw his ball evade the bottom of the cup and roll past for a half . Congratulations go to Andy and Chuck who go through to play the grand final but another day with the golfing gods being slightly kinder to Rob and Nathan and well , you know the story ……
Congratulations to Colin and Paul who won their match 2&1 to secure their place in the grand final which will take place on Sunday 24th April.
