         Winter Knockout Semi-final v Charminster

Held at Wheathill Golf Course  on Saturday 20 January

 

“ON THE MARCH WE GO”


Folke’s winning run in the Winter Knockout continues into the final for the third year running.

Wheathill Golf Club welcomed Folke and Charminster for this tough encounter. The usual banter in the club house over a good hearty breakfast for some of the players was the norm. Before Folke’s 10 finest encountered the tedious conditions on the coarse after it had been closed all week due to a lot of water.


Out first were Captain “Village” Hinks & Darren “Chippy” Marsh. Playing some ok golf, the Charminster pairing  got  their noses in front and, not looking back, went  on to beat the Folke pair 4 & 3.


Out second was Nigel [EL] Bow and  Mark [PC] Maguire. On the first hole PC Maguire had a moment but EL Bow putted for a half leaving PC Maguire a FREE putt to win the hole. But to “Archer’s” amazement “PC” picked his ball up. [VERY BAD SENIOR MOMENT]. Unfazed by the distraction they knuckled down to a 4 & 3 win.


Out third was Lee [I’M MISSING BLATCHY] Smith & Garry [CHUCKLE BROTHER] Mitchell in an up and down game but securing the win on the 18th to win 2 up.


Out fourth was my ever reliable pairing Simon [LEAKY] Lloyd & Kevin [RECYCLING TECHNICIAN] Allen. Going out into the gloomy weather, but playing steady golf as always, they secured a good 4 & 2 win.


Out fifth was my [BEST GOLFER IN THE CLUB][APPARENTLY] Dean Furzey and Steve [MY TOES WON’T GET WET TODAY] Henstridge. Giving lots of shots to the Charminster pairing, they battled through the conditions narrowly going down to [DEFEET] I mean “defeat” 2 & 1.


My thanks go to Wheathill Golf Club for their hospitality and for holding the match in difficult conditions after the wet weather earlier in the week. Also thanks to Nigel and his Charminster  team for the tough battle we had. [GOOD LUCK FOR THE NEW SEASON].


Match Result:  Folke won 3 – 2  and on to the final we go -  Against either  Yeovil  Golf Club or Wincanton Golf Club.

 

MY THANKS go to all my team that played today.


YOUR LEADER,


Captain Dinker
