Somerset Bowl Vs Isle Of Wedmore at Wells GC Sunday 6th May Match Report
Sunday 6th May Somerset Bowl At Wells V Isle Of Wedmore
Gorgeous weather greeted Orchardleigh and Isle Of Wedmore At Wells Golf Club on Sunday 6th May, as we played against each other in the 1st Round Of The Somerset Bowl.
Simon Barnes & Captain Gary Jefferies started us off, and although their match went all the way to the 18th, they unfortunately lost 1 down.
Neil McGuinness and Chris O Brien were next off, and quickly made it 1-1, and luckily we didn’t get to the “3 up with 4 to play stage”, as they romped home 5 and 4.
James Rutt & Paul Carmichael followed, and considering they had combined 25 years experience playing at Wells as members in the past, surely a win beckoned? Not this time I’m afraid, as they lost 2 and 1, the biggest loss of the day. We might have to chip in and buy Paul a course planner next time we play at Wells, to ensure on hole 15 he goes for the correct flag ha ha.
Now losing 2-1, we needed to win both remaining games to win the match. Rick Wright & Pete Foote were next up and their match went to the 18th 1 up, and managed to secure a 2 up win.
So the match was to be decided by our last pair Gary Quin & Bryn Withers, their match also went to 18, but unfortunately lost 1 down, resulting in a 3-2 loss to Orchardleigh, as Isle Of Wedmore Wedmore progressed to the next round.
