Walden on the March at Ramsey
Saffron Walden Golf Club scratch produced an impressive display of golf to beat Ramsey 5-1 in the latest round of CAGU Div 1 matches.
In a match which could have been a banana skin for the Walden boys, they went out fighting. Up first for Walden Tom Duggan and Ryan Adair took on Thorburn and Wright. Walden started with a birdie and then Ramsey shot two birdies themselves and then a few dropped shots took Ramsey to a 3 up advantage. This is when the Walden fighting spirit kicked in. With Walden Captain, Graham Goodman, caddying for Adair, they displayed some fine golf and over turned the deficit with Adair's pin seeking iron play and Duggan's immense length off the tee with a 3 wood. They eventually won 1up.
Next up the marquee number two boys Mark Reeve and Olly Tuck trounced the Ramsey pairing of Muir and Cripps 5 up. This included 3 birdies and an eagle. It has been an outstanding week for Reeve, who won the Old Fold Manor mid-am golf tournament and topped the UK Mid-am golf tour order of merit.
Bringing up the rear Richard Southall and Cam Brown were 1 up but two double bogeys cost them and they eventually halved their match with Hodgkin and Gear. They, however, still kept their impressive unbeaten run going.
In the other game Brampton Pk beat St Ives 6-0. So with Walden and Links playing 1 game less the table looks like this:
Brampton Pk 17
St Ives 3.
Graham Goodman (captain) said:
"We showed our fighting spirit tonight and dug deep to gain an away 5-1 victory. We got the order spot on so we will do our best to close the gap to Brampton Pk next week away at St Ives."
Keeping your card clean
Winning the BMW PGA Championship at 23 was impressive, doing it without dropping a shot over the final 18 holes… that's no mean feat either. In fact, that's what impressed us the most about Byeong-hun An en route to his weekend victory because Wentworth is a tough test whenever you play it, never mind in the heat of the battle when finding fairways is the order of the day.
Medal scores are often wrecked by big numbers on the card and that's something we can help you with. Whether it's course management, getting up and down more frequently, or making more putts, our team is on hand to help you lower your scores.
