2nd Team Match v Bucks
30 May, 2021
The second team league got underway on Sunday 30th May at Bagdemore Park, where we took on Buckinghamshire. Karen and Grace led the way in the foursomes with a tight match going all the way to the 18th and securing a half. Nikki and Sarah followed with another half, another close match with it going either way. Clare and Sally had tough opponents and narrowly missed out. With the scores being 2-1 to Buckinghamshire, it was all to play for in the afternoon.
Clare led the way in the afternoon singles, holing clutch putts on 14 and 15 resulted in a 3 & 2 win. Nikki unfortunately came up against a tough opponent who didn't miss a fairway or a putt! Grace made her debut in singles and what a debut....an awesome 6 & 5 win! Sarah fought hard against a steady opponent who unfortunately came out on top. Sally had a great match getting the win on 16! This left the teams both on 4 points, it all came down to the final match on the course. Karen was 3 down after 14, after winning 15 & 16 she stuck her approach to 6 foot on 17 and holed the putt for a birdie. Going down 18 all square meant it was all to play for, both players hit great tee shots however Buckinghamshire holed a great pressure putt to get the win.
An amazing first match of the season, both teams played great golf with lots of putts being holed. A tight 5-4 loss to Buckinghamshire - congratulations to Bucks!
We look forward to our next match against Berkshire on 1st August.
