The first league match of the season has finally arrived and with it a run of fine weather. Windy conditions made Halesowen a fine test for the lads and I witnessed some high standard golf shots throughout the day.

 

Worcestershire started the day well and pretty much controlled the foursomes through the first nine holes finding ourselves up in four of the five matches. However foursomes is a great test of mental strength and Warwickshire fought back hard and their first pair birdied the last three holes to turn that match completely around. At lunch the lads were very pleased to be leading 3 – 2.

 

The singles as normal with Warwickshire are tight matches and quite often look like they could go either way. The back to back par threes at fifteen and sixteen proving to be pivotal holes in most matches. The lads gave it their best shot but Warwickshire just edged the singles and won the opening league match.  Congratulations to Dean and his team.

 

Finally I’d like to thank Halesowen Golf Club for their hospitality and support throughout the day and I look forward to returning soon. I’d also like to thank all the parents and Worcestershire supporters for their on course support, I know the lads appreciate it. Please come and support us in our next home match at Kidderminster on Sunday 16th June.
