Boys Victorious at Seaton Carew
Our first Boys Team match was at Seaton Carew, Durham County against the Northern Federation Team consisting of four boys from each of Cumbria, Durham, and Northumberland. The weather was sunny to start then turned cold and showery for the day with the sun finally appearing later in the afternoon to warm us all up!
The Boys got off to a cracking start in the morning foursomes, however they faltered on the back 9! Luke & Jack were in a commanding position at 2 up at the turn only to lose four holes from the fourteenth to finish 2&1 down. Alfie & Joe took the turn at 1Up to then turn the screws and win 4&3. Sam & Spencer had a cracking game being 2Up most of the round after birdie on the first and then a par win on six, but sadly faltered towards the end losing 17 & 18 to finish 1Down. Tommy & Louie played some good golf together with 3 birdies and 1 bogey to win their game 5&4. Isaac & Jack had a good game but struggled all morning against Junior and Freddie from Northumberland to lose 2&1. Finally, Tom & Capt. Jake had a tough game against the other two Northumberland boys of Andrew & Charlie to lose their game 2&1 also! Not the best after the morning foursomes to be losing 4&2 but plenty of time to reverse the score line.
Jack was first out and getting off to a flyer winning his game 7&6 and leading the way for the rest. The boys knew they had to knuckle down and this they did playing some great golf in the afternoon. Jack had another tough game against Junior having been 2Up at the turn to then lose 10&11 to be All Square with five to play but came out victorious 2&1. Tom Took command of his game early doors and was out 3Up and won 2&1. All played well in the afternoon with the team winning 9 games, halving 2 and losing just the one to win the afternoon singles 10 – 2.
Another good win by the boys around a fantastic golf course 12 – 6. Well done guys.
