OWGS Alba Trophy
Tom Hawkings and Nick Holt had some (things are relative!) success at the Alba Trophy last weekend. The OWGS pair achieved scores of 74 + 77 (gross) 71 + 74 (net). This was good enough to win 3rd place in the handicap prize (losing out to Bradfield for second on a count back).
There is a bit of lurking frustration given that we had a poor finish where we dropped 6 shots in the last 6 holes (more than we had in the previous 30!). The Old Stoics won with 74 + 72, a score which had we shown a bit more composure at the end of our second round might have been within reach.
Nick played really well with great control, good putting and a couple of spectacularly long drives. My golf was a bit indifferent and I did feel my lack of playing at times.
