A brave and combative effort by the Tolly team just fell short in the 2nd round away match against Haverhill, played on 18th June. The final score was 11 down, but that score doesn’t do justice to the effort put in by, and the spirit of, this team.
After the morning round the teams were all square – 2 pairs won 4 up and two pairs lost 4 down. The afternoon round was played in blistering heat and was very close until the back nine, when (perhaps) an overall more youthful Haverhill side sneaked ahead. The standard of play by both sides was very high – one of our team commented that despite getting back-to-back birdies he didn’t win either hole!
Haverhill was very well presented – the course in superb condition and a very friendly clubhouse.
Thanks to all of this year’s Tolly team: Simon Scarff, Peter Howorth, Darren Dadswell, Tony Burn, Tony Ver-Haest, Trevor King, Jason Evans, David Bloom and Mark Smith.
