2018 Schedule

On a fine chilly day leading us out was Windy Miller. A tough day for the Cuff Carpenter who slid to a 4&2 defeat.

Number two was left winger Andrew Harris. This turned out to be a tough match before the lanky gardener shook hands on the last losing 1 down.

Number three was the low on confidence Skinny (I should be playing off 18) Henstridge. Skinny’s cause was not helped by his Captain asking his opponent to "give him a hiding" on the first tee...when does banter turn into bullying??  Another tough day for the village cyclist whose hero is Chris Boardman although his golf makes you laugh more than Stan Boardman. A tough day and another dent in his confidence as another defeat ensued 4&3.

Number four was the current club hero Rads who wishes he had today’s conditions to run the London Marathon rather than last weeks  heat. Still feeling the effect of his 26 mile stint, Rads shook hands being defeated 4&3.

Number five was Captain Blatchy. Blatchy was in dreamland after 5 holes finding himself 3 up, however he is isn't labelled the club choker for nothing and some abject putting saw him shake hands on a 1 down defeat.

Number six was Lilly Allan. Lilly got off to a poor start and never recovered suffering a hefty 5&3 defeat.

Number seven was Pikey Pitcher. Pikey was last seen taking a hiding from Captain Blatchy in last weeks Sunday Roll Up. He must have learned from his skipper as he proceeded to put his opponent to the sword and came in with a remarkable 6&4 victory,  taking the sweep stake money in the process. No need to be selling your crap wooden carving in the nearest lay-by this week Pikey :-)

Last but by no means least was Dinker Hinks,keeping his place in the side following his astounding half in his last Hardy A match, Today was another day as the Village fell to the biggest defeat of the day 6&4.

A tough loss for the boys today but as is always a thoroughly enjoyable day. My thanks to all the Folke boys for making themselves available and the Came Down Lads for making the day another enjoyable one. 

Performance of the day was easy to pick as we only had one Winner!...Well done Mr Pitcher.....p.s. the dodgy pound coin was from Harris ;-)

Quote of the day: Half of golf is fun; the other half is putting. Seen you on the first Tee

Hardy A League Match

Came Down (Away) - 28 April

Folke 1, Came Down 7



Folke’s first game of the season was a tough nut to crack -  being away at Came Down. The  team selection was quite straight forward Lee Smith dropped out as he was harvesting carrots, and Darren Marsh was also unavailable because he wanted to watch Yeovil Town lose again! In came Marathon Man Rads "its all for charity mate" alongside our resident green keeper Andy Harris. There was a relaxed mood about the boys pre-match preparations, maybe too relaxed, with the boys still being in the bar at 12:50 for a 1.00pm Tee off time.
