Back in Town! After an extensive overseas tour of duty Andrew Petricola is returning to his old form and may soon get back down to his old 2005 handicap of 3.1!. Close behind him was today’s tee marshal David Rees whose duties did not distract him from second place.  The older Akdag’s pride was also dented today when the youngest colt came in 3rd … Kazim is now only one wins points away from Ben! so practice hard Kazim.

Matchplay
In the matchplay poor Gordie must have thought he had his match in the bag until Damo plugged a 3 wood shot from the 17th tee into the green and dropped the putt to level the match and then go on to win the playoff.

Kazim held on valiantly to the 17th hole to be taken out by Snags. I’m sure you’ll all agree that matchplay is never over till its OVER!

New Handicapping System
You will have noticed that the handicap sheet looks different. That’s because I finally got off my butt and redeveloped the handicapping system which I thought would take a couple of days but so far has taken 50 hours – but then I’ve got nothing else to do have I :-).  It now runs on web servers so I am hoping to get much better information accessible for members. Please be on the lookout for any mistakes as the new system settles down.

Jan Siemon's tee shot on the 4th Par 3

We might have been washed out on Saturday, but not before Jan put in this effort on the 4th.
 A thrill to be there.
