Stableford of May 19
I have been pondering my navel recently wondering why the morning fellas consistently out perform the afternoon bandits so we decided to dispatch a special ops team to go in and find out why. The only conclusion was that the morning guys have youth on their side and the afternoon men are just inadequate. It has reached the point where I was considering an early start but was rejected by the Chairman of the club due to age. I will reapply when I am younger.
Good scores of 42 were attained by three morning members in a nail biter of a finish ; Bob Baunton, Allen Sarant and Richard Taitoko.
The afternoon was played in a soft rain reminding me of summer in the UK. To be fair the scores reflected the fact that most of the members were preoccupied by the wedding and what to wear. Graeme Parkinson 40, Chris Pilmer and Chris Hale 37.
Two of the players who shall remain nameless played as partners and demonstrated the vagaries¯¯ of golf. Wayne played a gameOO of two halves going from the sublime to the ridiculous and Trevor going from the ridiculous to the more ridiculous.
One member considered giving up golf but was persuaded to carry on at the behest of his wife to keep him out of house on Saturday. Well done Nelly.
It is meatpack day on Thursday and I look forward to seeing you on the course.
