Reserve Match:    Folke won 6&4

Captain Dinker issued a rallying call for this last home 3 Counties fixtures wanting to finish the season with a flourish. The signs were good, as the team had been in top form of late and the opponents were two players light. With Michelin Chef Lisa away on holiday, the meal was left to the boss whose style of cooking is more akin to the Muppett Swedish Chef, however a fine spread was laid on for the famished golfers.

Onto the first tee, and first out was the rejuvenated Blatchy paired with the faltering Skinny Love. A birdie from Blatchy was only good enough for a half on the first hole but as the game went on the home side played their way into a four hole lead - this despite Skinny being out driven by a Senior (twice).With five holes to play the game was surely in the bag for the home side however the Wheathill boys dug in and got themselves all square going down the last. The visitor missed a short putt on the last to win the game, but were delighted with an unlikely half. Blatchy & Skinny were left to take the "banter" in the clubhouse after such a collapse!

Second out was Furball and Windy Miller. With Furball getting used to life as a singleton and Miller feeling a bit under the weather it was always going to be a tough day for the pair. Teeing off on the first, Furball denied all the odds by avoiding the water for a change, bagging a birdie in the process. The boys soon found themselves in the ascendancy and with Miller stepping in when required to bail Furball out, the boys brought home a 4&3 win, Miller brought home clean underpants, not something anybody would have predicted on the first tee!!

Third on the Tee was El-Bow and Coolie. The local builders are beginning to forge a tough partnership but found their opponents a hard nut to crack on the day. A topsy-turvy match saw them finish with a half on the 18th tee.

Number four was Rads and Harv. Harv’s pre-match warm up consists of studying the racing post and Rads of going though his sock draw  is not the best, however this stood the boys in good stead as they played their way to an untroubled 5&4 victory.

Last but by no means least were the old boys -  in-form George Taylor alongside Folke’s foreign import Taff Lewis. The Daisy & Dolly of Folke were, as usual, solid as a stick of Barry Island rock and came home with a superb 6&4 victory.

In the Reserve match the Intellectually challenged Village pairing of Hinks & Mitch were a match made in heaven (think Starkey & Hutch, Sutton & Shearer, or maybe Ken & Deirdre). Playing only one opponent was always going to help the boys and they showed no mercy bringing home another top 6&4 win for the home side.

Back in the clubhouse it was a very happy Captain who announced a 4 -1 victory for the home side. Thanks as always to Andy & Steve who look after us so well and Dinker who leads the team well despite the "banter" he receives! 

Life is better when you’re golfing :-)
