Met Captain on first Tee just as he smashed one down the middle and he confirmed Medal format - which actually may be a better format and works quite well.
Still lots of unknowns in this game, For example, Malcolm's Drive was 'uncertain' so he was about to play a provisional - but what would happen if he had - was that their 3rd Shot ? - and if it was, should his Partner have taken the Provisional shot.
Another example was on 8th as Mike Burt was up against a Tree with Trevor in the Middle, so picked up as we assumed that if he took a penalty, then played on - that would be their third. But Trevor then proceeded to put his 2nd OOB - so Mike strode up and played a repeat (4th) - but should he have done that ?- I have a feeling that we should declare penalty shots 'non-sequential' - so that they count but do not alter the sequence. So in Case 1 above, Malcolm could have played 3 off the Tee - but just counting as his 2nd shot - so if they used Malcolm's Ball, his Partner would be playing 4 - but Trevor was flipping out by now, so we stopped trying to work it out and decided to wait for Roger.
As it was the Captain sneaked into 3rd with a very strong finish. Danny & Norman came back in 35 to take 2nd - but Robin was Teamed up with in-form Sir Nick of Lopen and took the win. Robin got a 2 on the 9th and then followed it with the 'Shot of the day' on the 10th. Nick had put their 3rd onto green but up on the top level. Robin lined it up and 'breathed' on his ball to start it rolling left, right,left and plop into the hole - whereas most people up at that level sent it back off the green again.
As Treasurer Keith is indisposed at the moment (se Tee-Tattle later) - Farmer Bob & Bert decided to pay the money out directly to those present, which save a lot of faffing around.
I think we are a few short today after an intensive week of golf, with next week looking just as busy.
I copied down by hand the Teams for next week (big hint to captain that I'd like a copy) - and I'll put on Blog when I get a chance.
Anyway, as Bruce would say, - Good Game, Good Game...
