The outcome of the Seniors’ return match at China Fleet proved to be rather more successful than the (inexplicable ?) heavy home defeat a few weeks ago.
In glorious, if unexpected summer weather, on a beautiful, manicured parkland course, our Saints managed to limit the defeat to 5 – 3. The day’s biggest smile of sheer delight was that on Dave Oldham’s face when he was presented with the nearest-the-pin wine – even Justin Rose did not look quite so pleased after the US Open! It probably helped to ease the pain of defeat for several of his team mates !
