The ruse by the Bowood Seniors Secretary to get his team to arrive an hour early nearly succeeded, but the experienced home team foiled their plans by taking the home leg by 4.5 to 3.5! The final score overall was St Enodoc 10 - Bowood Park 6.
Comfortable wins by the opening four pairs were offset by four very competitive matches at the back of the field. Claims of better conditions and better preparation time were ignored by the winning pairs.
On the subject of warming up....the Team Captain was on the General Manager's phone on a "where are you ?" call, when a relaxed jolly looking golfer strolled through the car park...."no problem, twenty minutes to tee off...plenty of time"........Well, what can you say when the pairing register an 8 & 6 win (which translates to 46 points stableford score)!
Nearest the pin was won by Colin Earle, thus denying the usual suspects (you know who)
Des Kelly & Roger Priestley won 3 & 1
Mike Maberly & Neal Jolly won 8 & 6
Kevin Birkett & Paul Godfrey won 4 & 2

Steve Smith & Ken Metcalfe halved
