The G4L has started! Sun 31st Mar

The first G4L match took place on saturday at Tewkesbury Park.
Rodway Hill were the guests and after a solid brunch headed for
the 1st tee. A sunny day was awaiting the 2 teams and finally some
firmness in the fairways to flatter their driving distances. All 6
pairings got away off the 1st, sadly some recording the very first
lost ball in G4L. As I wasn't playing I watched the pairs go
through the 5th (where we had a bottle on for nearest the pin) and
then through the 10th. At the halfway stage Tewkesbury were down 3
and 2 halves vs 1 and 2 halves. A fightback was required and duly
delivered. The first 2 results went 10-8 in favour of Rodway Hill
and I'm looking worried but the middle of Tewkesburys batting
order did their job and with the last game lost another 10-8 to
Rodway Hill the match was halved with Tewkesbury just edging it on
points 55.5 - 52.5


New friendships were made and there was a lot of laughter in the
bar afterwards. We look forward to the return match and it's going
to be tight season with this format.
