The Hall v FitzBilly for the One Fitz’all Trophy
DRAMA AT SANDY LODGE
This annual contest was closely fought at Sandy Lodge G.C. on 15th July. Our first pair, Jerry Gray & Neil James were dormy 3 down but dramatically came powering back to win the last three holes and a half point. Andrew Beardmore & Nigel Banks having been 5 up after five holes, were pulled right back but managed to hold on for a 2 & 1 win. Likewise, Chris Atkinson & Ken Hinkley-Smith won by the same margin. So, after three matches, The Hall led 2 ½ - ½. But, the Fitz 4th and 5th pairs played some tremendous golf to defeat John Dennis & Peter Jones and David Ashworth & Jamie Ede, and the contest was tied with the final match, still alive, coming up the 18th. Sadly, Michael Archer and David Hopkins could not quite clinch it on the final green and FitzBilly retained the One Fitz’all Trophy.
