22nd May 2017 – Match with Epsom (Lotus Eaters)

Match against our friends the Epsom Seniors (Lotus Eaters).

Six matches played and a really tense result.  Four matches halved, one win by Coombe Wood and Peter Carswell and I were bringing up the rear against Alan Cottam and David Doerr.  

Our match went to and fro – we took an early 2 hole lead before surrendering 4 holes on the trot, fighting back to all square after 9.

Back 9 was mostly one way as my partner and I moved into a strong 3 up with 5 to play.  However, Epsom were not finished and fought back to 1 down going to the last. The hole was halved in 5 – so Coombe Wood were victors.

It was an extremely friendly and well fought match, and I thank my partner and our opponents for making it such an enjoyable day.
