2016 – The March Meet – Sleaford
Les picked an excellent day for the first outing of the season. He was a welcome sight on the course, and was easy to spot on the course in his bright red jumper. He was surprised to see most of us practising before teeing off.
Dave West went shopping with his wife in the morning, and met David Carter’s wife on her own. Is Dave West the helpful husband? Or was he only allowed to play golf if he helped with the shopping first?
In addition, Dave is obviously not interested in the Shirtie Photo competition as he left his in the locker room, until retrieved by a fellow Follie.
It was nice to see David Oliver back with us, and he made an early bid for bloomer of the year when on the 6th tee he hit a magnificent drive over the 7th tee. He had asked where the green was and this was pointed out to him as the group in front was on the green, however the first group was also on the 7th green, so he had aimed for them.
Les however made a better bid for bloomer of the year when announcing the results, gave third place to Gabe 37 points and presented him with a ball. He then gave 2nd place to Geoff Delaney 39 points. (Everyone knew Graeme Phipps had won on 41 points, as he had to leave early), Geoff then asked about Trevor who had 40 points. Les went as bright red as his jumper, checked the cards, and took Gabe’s ball back.
Therefore the correct results are:-
1st Graeme Phipps 41
2nd Trevor Chapman 40
3rd Geoff Delaney 39
Nearest The Pin Kevin Hingle
