OWGS vs Old Blundellians – 25th June 2015 – East Devon Golf Club – Budleigh Salterton
Result : a 3-2 win for OWGS
A gloriously sunny day threatened only by a sudden sea mist which nearly obliterated several holes on the second half. Our first two teams out, playing four ball better ball matches, set the pace with wins, but the next two both lost leaving the result dependant on the final pair who did not let us down, crushing the opposition with 4 birdies on a day when most of us were struggling not to three putt on the glassy greens.
This was the sixth match in the series against the Old Blundellians in the west country and the first the OWs have won. All those who played said they enjoyed the day but sadly that win was achieved only with the help of two non Wykehamists as, without their participation, it would have been impossible to field a team of 10.
I have an email list of some 35 to canvass for this match, which alternates between Budleigh Salterton and Bristol, and if there are any more west country golfers who wish to play I would love to hear from them.
