OWGS v Old Westminster – Saturday 2nd April @ Royal Saint George’s
On a beautiful Saturday morning, that should signs of pushing Winter to the recent memory, the OWGS played against Old Westminster – a match remains one of the most enjoyable on the calender. The course was in fantastic condition with the greens becoming quicker and more true with the recent better weather.
Spoils were shared through the morning after a re-jigged line up that had all the hallmarks of a Chelsea era Ranieri side. Scott-Malden and Morse won comfortably against a Hewitt pair; Tindley and the débutante Fisher won handsomely against Mortimore QC and Furber (Captain, RSG 2016/17).
The afternoon showed a change of weather and a change of fortune for this OWGS. Holt and Alexander picked up a point against Cartwright and Kamm (the three shots keenly negotiated would not have been necessary) whilst Hough and Scott-Malden picked up a half. The conclusion was that either Winchester played better in the fairer weather or were less potent post lunch. As ever, Westminster were delighted with their victory…
Notably performance by Nyren Scott-Malden who won 1.5 points on the day…
This is an excellent match, well organised (thank you GC-B) and well attended. Please sign-up for it next year!
