On Monday 25th April the annual match between the Stags Captain's team and the Past Captain's team took place on a warm, dry but a little windy day. Each team had 11 pairs, so there were 11 matches, each comprising 6 mini matches. The opening two matches off the front nine and the opening match on the back nine made good time , but then there was a substantial gap as the next group followed the Stags adage of keeping up with the group behind and not the group in front. (and Ron was not even in the country!)
It was a good contest and the good weather allowed most of the competitors to wait together on the patio for the final result and presentation. The winner, out of the hat, for a fourball at Handsworth was the Captain, David Gibbs, and the winner of the bottle of wine was Steve Waugh, his winter and summer pairs partner. (it's all getting a bit like Westminster!!)
The winning team by 7 matches and 34.5 mini matches to 4 matches and 31.5 mini matches was the Captains team and the trophy was presented to David by Past Captain Dave Lole (see photo).
A total of £220 was raised for the Captain's Charity. Thanks to all who played.
