***** EGS Breaking News *****
10 members enjoyed the warm rain at Odelzhausen, inter alias the new member Brian Morris. At his first round with EGS he as well played his matchplay with Lee (Le Ben). It was a close match, but Lee managed to take advantage of the extra shots Brian had to give him, so after 14 holes he was 3 up. Brian fought himself back into the game and won 2 holes, so Lee was 1 up when both teed off for the 18. After having heard that he might have to play extra holes, Brian shot 2 balls deep into the rough , so Lee won that hole and the match. Congratulations!!!
In parallel Bruwer and I played our matchplay. As Bruwer Swanepoel said: This matchplay wasn’t about winning a hole, it was about not losing one. We both didn’t play that well … After the first hole, Bruwer was already 1 up. Later I managed to make less mistakes and got 2 up. Bruwer played his game, especially his short game, so after 14 holes we were all square. On the 16 I chipped into the bunker and on the 17 I chipped over the green, so Bruwer won 2&1. Congratulations!!!
In parallel, we played the regular stableford competition. In the money are:
1. Martin Clark with 38 Stbf
2. Adam Cockill with 32 Stbf
3. David Girdler with 31 Stbf
