Stags Four Nations

Stags Noticeboard : Stags Four Nations

The Stags Four Nations took place on Monday 4th September on the hottest day of the year and summer made a brief appearance. Chaos loomed at the start as two itinerant Welshmen turned up expecting to play having been told the Welsh team was one short in the week by another member of the team. Also our revered Captain arrived saying he was injured and couldn't play for Ireland (somebody said, I thought rather unkindly, that he could not bear to put in another incorrect card) Eventually it was sorted with the two itinerants playing for Wales and a kindly Welsh player agreeing to replace David Templeton in the Irish Team, forgetting that he had to walk to the 14th tee to start. In spite of pleas from the Competition Secretary to keep up with the group in front, a significant gap arose on the back nine and two tees were filled on hole one before they arrived there. One by three Stags (why weren't they in the comp!!) and the other by a two ball. In the end the slow pace set by the Captains enabled all teams to finish within 20 minutes so all was not lost.
In spite of the heat and a bad choice by the Competition Secretary, not expecting such a hot day, enjoyed by all, I think. In the absence of the Captain and Vice Captain the prizes were presented by the aforesaid Comp Sec. Paul Turner (Ireland), Mick Brown (Wales) and David Gibbs (Scotland) won the individual best scores for their country. Julian Westwood (England) won the best overall score and England won the Dermot Hurley Trophy with a best seven score of 267 points.
