South Herts Scratch Seniors beat Veralum!

South Herts Senior Scratch team played away at Veralum's tough course on Wednesday. Here is Captain, Alfie Schlosz', report on the day...  

 

VERULAM 1 &  HALF  SOUTH HERTS 1 & HALF

 

What a result. The spirit of Dunkirk revisited.

 

Final hole Par 5, 1 down.

 

  Immaculate drive by Matthew. Centre of fairway, picture the scene....  Second shot requires a slight draw to a sloping green. Choice of club, essential.  Hybrid ..... bated breath....execution of strike perfect......  Matthew left with a putt for eagle which is narrowly missed.  Missed birdie attempt by opponent gives us a half and two valuable points.

 

 Once again Matthew and Roger have shown that never say die attitude..  Well played indeed.

 

Our lead off pair of Ben & Bob contolled their match from the outset and were never troubled in winning 4 & 3.  Ben undefeated to date.

 

Colin & Ian had great difficulty in coming to grips with this rather quirky course with its rather unfavourable bounces. They lost their match 5 & 4.

 

Once again Verulam has proved to be a difficult venue, but this half achieved today is a definite improvement to previous losses.

 

We are now 8 points ahead of second place Ashridge who have played 1 game less.

 

Next Match at Home to Ashridge on Wednesday 1 August 2018

 

Game on.

 

My best regards

Alfie
