As numbers thinned on our second weekend outing for this championship, the wily foxes of Bernie Parker and Maurice Manwaring started like a house on fire, before holding on to their backsides, as Tam and Craig's luck changed albeit too late for the reckoning.
Again the skies presented a glorious late autumn weekend for golf and the course was in great shape. It was just a shame nobody could capitalise on the perfect conditions to lock away a good round of golf.
Maybe it was a bit of matchplay, maybe nerves but Bernie and Herbie, along with Tam and Craig, could not for the life of them string any two or three holes together.
This seeded draw of last weekend's 1st and 2nd placeholders saw scores all over the place.
By the end of the first nine, the prior weekend lead of 2 to Bernie and Herb was restored and there were nine holes to go.
After four of these, everyone in the group had recorded a wipe and everyone had recorded a 3 pointer, the uncertainty was palpable. Bernie and Herb looked to have it in the bag through 14 yet Craig knocked in very unlikely birdies on 16 and 18 for 4 points each, ultimately going down to Herb and Bernie by 1 point across 2 weekends.
To a spectator it was probably a nail biter, to the players, well they can only shake their heads at how it resulted.
Very fitting victors in Bernie Parker and the spritely 87-year-old Maurice Manwaring who scored when they needed to and did not leave too many holes with wipes. Congratulations on 41/39 = 80 points to Craig and Tam's 39/40 = 79 points.
The daily winners however, should have contemplated turning up the weekend before as well.
Simon Glover and Harry Sachs eased into a 49 point round thank you very much, showing up Tam and Craig by 9 shots on the day and Herb and Bernie by 10 points. For this, the lads easily won the day's event.
The individual result saw Harry take the ball on 41 points, whilst Simon was runner-up, with 39 points, easily accounting for those who were trying the championship mind games.
Its medal time.
Up for grabs in an individual stroke will be the day's event, the June Medal and the Guzzlers Mug.
Register one and all (Mens, Ladies & Juniors), as all are welcome to enjoy the great conditions on course and magical weather at present.
See you there.
