Match Report
MTGS v Scottish MTGS May 11/12 th 2017 at Nairn GC

Having assembled bright and early at Luton airport on Thursday 11th May, the English contingent duly arrived at Nairn Golf Club in Inverness to do battle.
After soup and sandwiches, the first group teed off at 2pm and drove into a breeze accompanied by sunshine. As Captain, I was told to set the standard and with David Warren duly did: sadly, SOME OTHERS did not and the first day ended 2-2. The individual results were: -
• Paul Williams & David Warren won 3/2
• Ray Fisher & John Smith won 5/3
• Roger Prowting & Godfrey Hall lost 2down
• Peter Featherstone & Don Baynham lost 1down.

A good evening was had by all with Godfrey dressed in his outfit from the urban pimp collection!!

The next morning, we teed off at 10am with adjustments having to be made to the format as a result of Alastair of the SMTGS having to leave with a suspected hernia - I suspect he had picked up Peter’s wallet!

I was quietly confident that we had a win coming, but then had to settle for yet another 2-2 thus leaving the Trophy with the Scots after a 4 – 4 drawn match.

Scores on the second day were: -
• Paul & David won 4/3
• Ray & John won on a Stableford format
• Roger & Godfrey lost 6/5
• Peter & Don lost 2/1.

It was disappointing to be so close but it was a great experience, highlighted by supping Guinness in glorious sunshine on Friday afternoon.

Thanks to Peter for his excellent organisation.

Paul Williams
