Northants Golf

2nd Team v. Suffolk

10th May 2015

Whittlebury Park Golf Club

The weather at Whittlebury Park was cold and windy.

The foursomes play was disappointing at times. We looked after 9 holes as if we might get a 2 all at lunch but very poor finishes from two pairs with bogeys and doubles over the last 4 holes left us at 1-3 down at lunch.

The outstanding pair of the morning were Jon Harris & Miles Mudge who played some solid golf.

The afternoon singles were much more positive and the golf improved from most of the players.

  • Nick Herridge (County Champion) put in a solid performance at number one to win 6/5, 
  • Miles Mudge lost 3/2
  • Mark Bazeley lost 4/3
  • The outstanding performance was from Jon Harris who was four under par when he won 6/4.
  • Stuart Nicholas's golf greatly improved from the morning and his 2/1 win was a good contest with Stuart sticking to the task.
  • Taylor Sargeant played very well for his 1up win against good opposition with solid golf and good ball striking. 
  • Mike Chambers lost 3/2
  • The surprise in the afternoon was Jake Croxford who had looked completely out of touch in the morning, He went 2up early and was pegged back to be 2 down after 13 holes he won the 14th & 15th to go A/S he won the 16th to go 1up halved the 17th with a great up and down from the left side so 1up one to play we looked like we might get a half out of the match, With all the team watching at this point Jake hit a great tee shot at #9 on the blue to leave a good shot into the green his opposition hit an iron of the tee a bit left near the hedge and played a great shot to the green from where he was Jake pulled his shot to the green to leave a very difficult up and down that was nearly very good but he could not make par for the one up win so the match was halved and the result was 5 1/2 - 6 1/2 it was close and a great effort by all of the team.

Suffolk wished to thank Whittlebury Park for the way they had been looked after on Saturday & Sunday and said that the course was in great condition and wanted to thank the course staff.
