Match Report, - Ryder Cup v Wincanton (Home) 14 August

With the honours even in the season’s home and away fixtures there was everything to play for in this annual Ryder Cup competition. The format was three foursomes and 3 fourballs over nine holes in the morning followed by 12 back nine singles in the afternoon.

After the welcome coffee and the usual banter the teams set out on the fairways that were showing green again after the recent heat wave although there was a cool breeze and overcast sky.

Things were looking good for Folke as the first teams returned to the clubhouse for coffee and doughnuts but with the final three pairs all losing the advantage was with Wincanton at the half way mark 3½ :2½ .

But all was not lost as our valiant heroes got stuck into their singles matches. As the clouds cleared and the pairs drifted back to the clubhouse  it soon became clear that the boys had done well winning all but one of the singles matches. This resulted in an overall score of 11½ to 6½ to Folke.

On a warm but breezy day we all set out to do battle with the team from Cannington, who were out to reverse a 5½ :½   score line at Folke two weeks earlier, and for a couple of hours it looked like they might do it. But fortunes changed and the Folke team fought back and managed to halve the match, and maintain our very successful run of matches. The match was followed by a fantastic Ham salad and Lemon meringue pie and cream.  Well done to the whole of my team and big thank-you to our friends from Cannington.
