As if Sunday wasn’t already exciting enough, Wareham GC came to Somerley for the 4th round of the Daily Mail Foursomes. Graham and Nigel waited patiently in the car park for their opponents to struggle through a huge queue of traffic on the A31.
When they arrived, they announced themselves as a father and son pairing, with a combined handicap of…. 0!! As part of the competition rules, Graham and Nigel are required to play off a maximum 18 handicap, so they were already facing a couple of strokes deficit.
However, nothing prepares a golfer for the Somerley Challenge… and the visiting duo were unable to tame the beast, and with some excellent play from the home team (Graham tells me he has never seen Nigel play so well), the result was a 2&1 victory for Somerley.
On to round 5… (the draw takes place this coming Monday)
