Captain and Pro Match
The first Lady Captain and Pro Match was played against the strong pairing of this year’s first Druce duo Jo Thesiger and Caroline Dewar. Ricky Pharo, Head Golf Pro, was representing the Pro Team and drove first into the rough on the left (they do it too!), I hit a reasonable drive to just beyond the 150 mark with Caroline 10 yards away and Jo straight and true up the middle. First strike to the opposition. However, sadly for all those including myself who are struggling with the rough, Ricky put his second shot 10 feet from the pin and everyone else scattered to the four winds. Caroline struck some fantastic fairway woods and Jo hit a magnificent second shot onto the third green which resulted in a birdie 3, notoriously the most difficult hole on the course but they were not on their A game and Ricky had a wonderfully steady round of 3 under par which gave the Lady Captain and Pro a 4&3 victory. The Battersea Summer Scheme has benefited by another £60 thank you one and all for a very enjoyable round.
