Annual Staff v Members Match
Two famous matchplay golfing events began last Friday, one between the U.S.A and Europe and the other a much more important affair.
One was played in front of millions of spectators and involved quality golf from both sides and the other wasn't and didn't, and probably never will, but I know which one I enjoyed more.
My particular match resulted in a 'slight' win for the members (we walked in from the 14th green) and was played out with great spirit and sportsmanship and in good company.
Unfortunately the example set by myself and my partner Lewis was matched by most of the rest of the staff team with only Paul Deaney and Jack Andrews recording a win for the staff.
Congratulations to the Members team and we look forward to next year....plenty of time for practice.
