Winners of the Ryder Cup 2010 & 2011
Is it a sign of age or do Captains Days come round at an alarming pace. This years event was well attended with 24 members. Dave was at full stature as he tried in vain to call the troops to order in an attempt to explain how the day would unfold.
We all heard him say the morning par three challenge on the par three course would be a shot gun start but this message failed to get through to the pro shop as we had to wait for other golfers to finish their round – surely Dave your authority is waning! The par three on difficult greens was won by the team of Les & Matt.
We then had the main event – the fish and chip lunch before the Medal where the Neville Green Plate was up for grabs alongside Angel Cup places. Now it has to be said the F&C were good but in going to the upstairs dining room we were all distracted by the photograph of a past Gaudet Captain who I am reliably informed looked like a 1970s porn star - Could this then slim and moustached dodgy looking character now be the PGS Chairman?
The medal competition enjoyed dry but windy conditions (not just because of the mushy peas). The eventual winner on count back was Kev Lloyd (2012 Champion of Champion front-runner) with a net 69 from Vic Hammond. Keith Taylor was third with a net 71 and best stableford outside the top three was Brian Marshall. So that all players could see the event the longest drive was unconventionally taken on the first hole and Ian Brazier was on the button. The nearest the pin was the 16th which Tim “Killer” Kilby managed to secure only then to take 3 puts and hence a further fine to the Captains Charity.
the sun into the early evening now bright in the sky and the wind having
dropped a “hard core” 6 re-convened at the Brandy Cask to pull the
pieces out of the day and all concluded it had been a great day. Well
done Dave and thank you.
