19th May 2018 - Rosebowl Round 1 (win) - RND 3.5 - Saunton Artisans 1.5
Star performance of the day was from our lead pairing Chris Drew and Paul Wilson, giving shots to their opponents who won the Bideford bay this year. After finding themselves 4 down after 10 they started to pepper the pins and won 2 up with some outstanding golf.
Second group off were Chris Hampton and Robin Glover, the pair started well and were 3 up early with some solid golf but around the turn they started to leak shots and found themselves losing on 18 with an unlucky tee shot.
Third pair were Richard Hughes and Martin Gibbs. After being 2 down after 2 they turned the game around with some solid golf and quickly found themselves 3 up and never looked like losing, performing well as a pairing, winning 3 and 2.
Fourth off was the ever dependable Steve Flood and Ethan ‘baby giraffe’ Jeffrey. With some good golf they quickly found themselves up and cruising leading by 3, but after a string of errant shots they finally kept their nerve winning down the last.
Last off were captain Shaun Loze and debutant Neil Armstrong. Things didn’t look good as their opponents birdied the first, but they fought back and had birdies on 5,6 and 7 to lead by 3 at the turn. After some good golf from their opponents and a couple of wayward shots by our pair they closed the gap and were relieved to shake hands on the last for a half. Well done Neil 100% fairways hit.
