Seniors on form against Tehidy

Published: 29th April 2014

The Seniors entertained Tehidy Seniors on Friday, 25th April and in somewhat benign conditions recorded a win by 4½ - 3½. In one of his rare appearances and despite his usual tactical and shrewd selection of partner, Captain of the Day Tyrrell Sandry managed to lose the opening 4 ball. Even his Chairman partner’s valiant and skillful effort in making par on the last four holes was insufficient. However, in his post-dinner speech Tyrrell made amends with a slick, entertaining performance warmly applauded. His style appeared to be an amalgam of the twinkling feet of Astaire and the risqué content of Jethro, delivered in the near-English tones of a Bodmin boy made good at Oxford. The visiting captain wisely made no attempt to compete ! There was also some entertaining and some frustrating golf !

  • Tyrrell Sandry & John Radford lost 4 & 3
  • Paul Godfrey & Dick Leivers won 2 & 1
  • Nigel Thomas & Stuart Sandercock halved
  • Peter Commings & Roger Priestley won 3 & 2
  • Richard Parsons & John Harbinson lost 2 & 1
  • Mike Maberly & Garry Cooper won 2 up
  • John Bower & Harry Gliddon lost 3 & 2
  • Derek Daniels & Geoff Matthews won 2 up
