IGC versus Pierpont
Sunday 15 April 2018
The format was 4BBB matchplay. Out first was your captain and John Musunga who dovetailed very well to fight back to half the match against a strong opening pair from Pierpont which included a very young 4 handicapper. After that, well, the flood gates opened as IGC romped away to a thumping victory. You can see the smiling victorious pairs in the IGC photo album.
The only blemish on an otherwise excellent day was that our own Arthur Thompson unfortunately fell ill on the first hole – let me say there is no truth in the rumour that his illness was brought on by his playing partner, Mark Adams, leaving him a pressurised 6 foot putt on the opening hole. A big thanks to the staff at Pierpont for the excellent care they provided and I am glad to say that Arthur is on the mend – lets hope to see him on the course again soon.
Well played to all which showed the strength of our club. Lets keep up the strong showing over the rest of the golfing calendar. Further club matches to come including against Royal Waterloo in the summer – more details to follow in due course.
