The team spent Tuesday afternoon preparing with a practice round at Ludlow Golf Club. The aim was to find our what the playing conditions were like, tee shot lines and strategies on the short par fours. The course was greener and softer than expected with only light winds, which is exactly what we were expecting the following day for the tournament. The greens were fantastic so we estimated a low scoring leaderboard.
The Worcestershire team had three steady scores of 72, 73 and 74 in the morning with Evan recording the lowest score. However the other three scores were not as good as we'd hoped for and in this tough format that left us lying 8th at lunch.
The afternoon scores followed a similar pattern to the morning with with 70, 73 and a pair of 75's. Brandon recorded the teams lowest score of the afternoon and day with a solid level par 70 and our team score in the afternoon was only +4 to our combined handicaps.
All in all not the result we had aimed for, but an enjoyable day where all players learned from the experience and with five out of the six players still eligible next season we hope to finish higher up the leaderboard in 2019.
