It certainly was not the news that we were all hoping for,but Lockdown it is, and golf is off the menu !
If I'm thinking of myself, I can feel pretty disappointed that I won't be able to get out & play, but if I stop & think of others for a minute, I see the situation a little different.
Less than 2 weeks ago, a very good friend of mine & many of yours, was in hospital fighting for his life. Thankfully he is now on the road to recovery. Sadly this situation is not unique & more of us are hearing of similar or worse situations up & down the whole country. So whilst I might feel some frustration about not being able to play this great game of ours, in the grand scheme of things, the sacrifice is small.
Ok the sermon has now finished , onto the golf news....
Winter League week 4 saw another weekend of some excellent scoring with some familiar names at the top of the Leader board.
Saturday Div 1.
1st Place Sean Daniels 40 points
2nd Place Neil Hurst 37 points
1st Place Dean Luck 37 points
2nd Place Ray Ripsher 36 points
1st Place Phil Demetriou 39 points
2nd Place Rob Collett 36 points
Winter League Standings after 4 weeks
1st Place Sean Daniels 147 points
2nd Place Jack Bidmead 145 points
3rd Place Neil Hurst 133 points
With Sean Daniels & Jack Bidmead both having played so well in recent weeks, Will the enforced break de rail either of them in their quest for glory ? Or will one or both of them come back even stronger. We will just have to wait.....& wait..... & see.
Or will a new name rise from the chasing pack?
See you all in December...Hopefully!
