Unfortunately Dave, John & Ray lost their semi-final yesterday to Folkestone, who went on to take the Over 50s Triples title. However, they will be back in action with added Eldred in the Middlesex County Indoor Finals tomorrow at Century.
Also there will be Ange defending her singles title, Ange, Peter, Ian & Dawn contesting the Mixed Fours final v yes, you guessed it, Dave Pitt & Co! Play starts at 10.00 am if you wanted to come over and watch. It’s a 20 mph limit almost all the way between the club and Century in Wembley (51, Between, 53 Logan Rd, London, Wembley HA9 8PY), so allow plenty of time.
I have copies of the entry forms for the 2022-23 Middlesex Indoor Competitions and will leave copies at the club tonight next to the EIBA competition forms. Deadline is 1st May if you’re paying entry fees direct to their bank account. If not, please can we have your forms and entry fees back by 25th April.
Any of you watching the Masters? The radio show gave up lots of information about it including the fact that the winner chooses the menu for the pre-match dinner the following year. Tiger Woods ordered burgers , Seve Ballesteros Paella and the last winner, Hideki Matsuyama, a full Japanese feast! Another interesting feature in this day and age is that no mobiles are allowed on the course and there are no digital scoreboards. Everything is done manually and the cheers you hear from the crowd could be from a shot 5 mins previously as the news progresses via the spectators around the course. The site was previoulsy a garden nursery, hence the vast amounts of azaleas, rhododendrons etc.
The excitement so far seems to be Tiger Woods back on the course and shooting one under par on day 1 putting him in 9th place.
I hope you’re able to watch on Sky Golf as I don’t think it’s viewable anywhere else.
