On a blisteringly hot sunny day Folke’s finest gathered for what was going to be a tough encounter against top of the table Sturminster Marshall. Captain Village Hinks was buoyed by the return of our popular young senior Tone Smith. ( Great to have you back Tone :-).  The first job of the day as always for our home fixtures, was to polish of another fine buffet breakfast prepared by Lisa which all ably managed...no mention of those who went up twice!!


Onto the golf and first off was the reliable Silver Fox Darren Marsh alongside the returning senior Smith. Things were tough for the Folke boys against a very good pairing who never really gave them a sniff all afternoon, - only sniffles in the club house when they got back having suffered a 3&2 defeat.


Next up was Captain Village Hinks alongside an out of form Simon Radcliffe, who had taken to practising late at night under the cover of darkness such was the state of his game. It was Hinks who did the damage early on starting with a pair of Birdies to take the pressure off his partner.  It was an inspired bit of Captaincy from the Village as a relaxed Radcliffe started to play the golf we all know he is capable off climaxing with a HOLE-IN-ONE on the sixth much to the delight of his whooping captain. The pair went on to record a hard fought 2&1 victory.  Third on the Tee were the inform Leaky Lloyd paired with Lilly Allen who was sporting some new bats for the day, Their match was a rather topsy-turvy affair with the lead being exchanged on several occasions.  However a fine half was achieved walking off the eighteenth green.


Fourth out was Category Two Specialist Blatchy alongside the Daily Mail Specialist George Taylor (Tinno must be inform). The pair made a solid start although Blatchy missed gettable putts to win the first two holes having to settle for a half on both. George then came onto his own winning three with a shot and proceeding to play some decent golf that saw the pair gain a two hole advantage. However this was to prove not enough as back to back birdies from the visitors saw them draw level before getting themselves two up with two to play, The never-say-die spirit game to the fore and a par on seventeen and eighteen by Mutton Jeff Taylor saw the home side come home with an unlikely half.


Last but not least in the league match was Sparky Harvey and Terrence Trent Darbo. When these boys are on song nothing is going stop them dovetailing like Mickie & Minnie. They came home with the best score of the day shaking hands on a 5&4 victory.


The Reserve match saw Captain Village Hinks defy medical science, managing to part Master Builders Furzey & Mitchell for the day. Sending the latter out with Archer Bow, the pair had a slower start than Mitchell’s working day and soon found themselves staring down the barrel of an early finish....just like Mitchell’s work day. However, unlike Mitchell’s work day, this lasted the duration and the pair were eventually beaten one down on the last hole (love you Mitchy x).


After the Aceman Radcliffe had bought everybody a drink for his fine effort, the scores were totted up and a narrow 3&2 victory was declared to Folke with the Reserve match being won by Sturminster Newton.


Another great day at the club and as always thanks go to Lisa, Steve, Andy and this week Skinny Love who cut the greens and set the course up on Saturday morning.


Thought of the Day....Never concede the putt that's going to beat you!
