Results from the Austin Lodge Golf Day
July 4, 2003 - 01:00
Another excellent day at the golf, with 22 finally teeing off (Colin Twitchen blown head gasket and Darren Whitford work in Ireland 2 late withdrawels) Brian Long got Independence Day off well by leaving his golf shoes at home, pro shop was pleased with the extra business! John Dougherty had just one of those days, he spent 5 minutes pulling on the clubhouse front door when the sign read push, he the unknowingly dropped his sizeable wallet in the car park, loads of cash and credit cards!! Thankfully found by the ever vigilant Neil South, who decided it best to keep the find secret for a while!! Dougherty then in the morning round played the 17th. rather than the 8th hole, poor Simon Evans was putting for an eagle before Mike Russell pointed out the error of their ways!! In the afternoon, Dougherty now reunited with wallet founf himself buying everyone a drink after David South kindly deposited one of JD's credit cards behind the bar!! Nice one!! JD still managed however to play the 8th. as longest drive rather than the 11th. so we finally managed to get a message to the leading group to transfer the competition to the 17th. Take more water with JD!!! Bob Martin, thank god no relation to yours truely, then did his level best to take out our societies 'token tart', Gill Griffiths ( she loves it really) by losing control of their buggy on the treacherous 7th. hole on an S bend. Thankfully, Gill abandoned buggy pretty damn quickly!! Simon Evans played the round of his life in the afternoon, going round in one under par!! Remarkable!! Good to see Ian Mackenzie all the way down from Norfolk for the day. Full day's results below, a bit like the Steve Haines and Dave Reardon show!!
