On a menacingly grey evening, 25 bold FROGS ventured out to face the stormy challenge of Junglinster and their golfing frailties. But the weather conditions prove no hindrance to the natural golfing abilities of certain FROGS, while the others appeared to struggle to survive in their natural, wet habitat.
Best guest of the two present went to Arnaud Bouteiller with an excellent 16 points. Having now been invited to become a member, Arnaud will no longer be eligible for this fine award and will have to face up to the challenge of the increasing number of below par FROG handicappers – ask one of them, who managed to get the grand total of one point with a par on the 9th last night!
On the SHRM match play front, Johnny Sutherland sportingly accepted Gregor Dalrymple’s concession of their match. Whereas, on the night, Derek Sinclair aka Delboy, after a magnificent drive on the 8th, decided to shank his second and let go the chance of eliminating our sponsor in the shape of Mr Daniel Kaiser losing out 2&1. The two Daves (Winters and Walker) battled to the 9th where Mr Winters prevailed 1up, while Craig and Paul went to the first extra hole before Craig knocked out our shaggy-haired Dutch friend!
There are still a number of match plays to be completed so get in contact with your opponents and let the Committee know the results.
Craig also outdrove all to win the longest drive and he still managed to claim that his ball had stopped dead. Johny Sutherland hit a beauty to within 2 metres of the hall on the 4th but, no, he didn’t make the birdie.
The CITCO challenge remains a hard-fought affair: Nathan won third place on count back with 18 points while Franco Mastroddi lost out on count back to Jonny Hill, both with 19. Mr Hills was most appreciative of the generous contribution to his new waterproof equipment.
The overall leader of the CITCO challenge after 4 rounds is Jonny Hill with an excellent 62 points, followed by Duncan Tippin on 56 and Craig on 53.
Last and truly last, the pink ball. Again another close battle but the outright winner with 6 points was Mr Mark Philips!
Many thanks to our sponsors and see you all at Preisch on 18th June. Patch Lowe will be in contact shortly.
