Happy return for the Seniors

Published: 6th August 2015

Following their successful involvement in the Lanhydrock Seniors’ Open a few days earlier, the Seniors visited the club again on Monday, 3rd August for the regular fixture between the Clubs’ senior sections. And once again it was a successful venture as the Old Saints came away with a 5 – 3 victory.

All but three matches were closely contested and ironically, Steve Smith was unusually delighted only to double his score on the short par 3 that he had aced four days earlier. The course was superb, the company and ambiance created, colourful and stimulating and it appears that Paul Godfrey does not now feel it necessary to visit the trees as frequently as previously. Old Hickory is at a loss to know whether this is a reflection on his golf or an improvement in a certain medical condition !

  • Derek Rushton & Kenton Williams won 3 & 2
  • Steve Smith & Richard Parsons won 5 & 4
  • Colin Earle & Nigel Thomas halved
  • Keith Hawke & John Westlake won 2 & 1
  • Keith Willmott & Frank Harper halved
  • Paul Godfrey & Kevin Birkett won 5 & 3
  • Harry Gliddon & Tony Mindel lost 4 & 2
  • Adrian Hansell & Bill Comyn lost 2 & 1

NTP: Richard Parsons

Old Hickory’s Trivia:
Everyone replaces his divot after a perfect approach shot.
There are no atheists in pot bunkers.
When another fourball is on the green, ‘Fore’ is not an excuse, ‘So what ?’is not an apology, and ‘Up yours’ is not an explanation !
