Glorious sunshine continued on Friday, and a hole in one, writes John Pawley.
Indeed it led to the asking: “How much longer can the rich vein of form that senior Alex Neil is enjoying, last?”
Over recent weeks he has won two competitions and been cut a stroke – and now he has a hole-in-one.
Playing in the annual seniors captain’s team versus the vice captain’ team match he Alex capped another good round with his holed tee shot on the 10th.
Work on the course meant temporary greens were still in play, providing much discussion in the clubhouse afterwards.
You may also want to watch:
Played in good spirit, the matchplay format mixed high and low handicaps, but there was still the usual rivalry.
Both captain and vice captain won their respective matches – somehow. With scores in, and penalties awarded, the result was a draw, so all competitors were able to take home a bottle of wine.
