Hitoshi had a good day at the office and declared nothing special to report, only a 6n5 win with 3xbirdies, the modesty of the low handicappers!
Dave had another solid game with the icing being the sinking of a 50 foot putt.
Sarah had an exceptional chip in birdie on the 1st hole to set the

Weather conditions were good for golf, not too hot and no rain.
Course had suffered a lot from recent rains leaving bare fairways in places.
In the matches themselves, highlight of the day was from stand in on the day, Axel, who produced one of his best rounds ever in the singles match, notching up 3 x birdies on his way to a convincing win over Shawn.

Day started off well with sun, later it clouded over and heavy shower stopped play for short time, however course conditions were good and not impacted by the rain.
All 5 matches went to the final hole, and D.O.G.S. and Sandbaggers were only separated by Dave Moore, shooting a solid 40 on the back 9, to pip Aidan to take that singles match 1 up.
Well done all, and thanks to Sandbaggers for making it a great match.
As to the Match with Sandbaggers; both teams were very well matched on paper and this was reflected on the course once the matches got underway.
D.O.G.S., however, were obviously buoyed by surprise appearance of the puppy DOG, nephew of the Little DOG, who wished everyone well before Tee-Off:
Many highlights during the day, but the pick of the bunch went to Rey Moore who scored an Eagle on the par4, 8th hole, well done!
This was closely followed by Michael Mueller getting a birdie on hole 7, the most difficult index hole on the course, unfortunately for the DOGS, both his opponents, Diarmuid and Fernando also got birdies to square the hole, nevertheless a great effort for a high handicapper.
Other highlights included:
Simon chipping in for a birdie on the second last hole to go 1 up, only to be pegged back by Kees who also chipped in for a birdie on the last hole to square the match, that was as close as it gets!
Colin shooting 2 x birdies.
Dougy drilling a 35 foot putt, on the 6th hole, to within 6 inches to take the hole.

Day started off well , bit of sun and coffee and friendly banter between D.O.G.S. and JAWS in the clubhouse at the start, then off to the tee box.
Tough match to come, in worsening weather conditions, but D.O.G.S. still had plenty of highlights including Koko’s introduction to matchplay with a win on his first outing, pairing up with stalwart Malcolm to see out a good win 3 and 2 in their pairs match.
David also had a good day, coming off a shaky start to string together a good run with 2 x birdies and take his singles opponent, Simon, to the last hole being 1 up. Unfortunately for D.O.G.S., Simon birdied the last hole to salvage a half, nevertheless a really good result for David against a very low handicapper.
In the other singles match, late entrant Dougy also had a slow start and did well to par the second last hole to level up the match going down the last fairway, but was unable to beat Randy’s great par on the last hole, thus losing the match by 1.
In other doubles matches John and Sarah lost 4 and 3, Rey and Michael lost 8 and 6 against very strong JAWS pairings.
Final result DOGS 3 JAWS 7
