On Thursday 16th July the Leek Seniors' went to Market Drayton to play their away fixture. Another lovely sunny day - of which I take the credit for of course.
It's some years since I last played at Market Drayton and the 'new holes' as I call them are maturing nicely. Sadly my partner Arthur Doherty and I did not take our 'A' game with us. I'm not sure how far down the alphabet we had to go to find the game we did take. It was just one of those day for us both!
Market Drayton's Seniors Captain's game was as flamboyant as ever, but the real star of the match was his partner who played off a handicap of 14 and so received 5 shots, most of which he did not need. We were treated to a man who knew his course inside out. He knew exactly where to drop his ball so that it finished near flag and his bad shots whilst few and far between always seemed to result in an excellent recovery shot. We lost 3 and 2 and did well to keep the match going so long. The course was a pleasure to play. The greens were a little quicker than ours and the borrows a little more tricky to read - I blame my glasses!
It was yet again a pleasure to lead such a grand bunch of lads even if we did lose the match.
