SLIPPERY STAIRS & SERGIO'S SUNDAY!!
An eventful Masters with lots to enjoy and lots to talk about, with the surprise withdrawal of Dustin Johnson, the event was blown right open and what a Sunday it produced!! Our pick of Fitzpatrick flew out the blocks on Thursday, but couldn't continue it for the four days and what a showing from a European perspective. New kids on the block John Rahm and Thomas Pieters showing they have all the skills to tackle Augusta and surely going to be welcome strength to a Ryder Cup team next year!
But it was the battle between Rose & Garcia that had us all on the edge of our seat! Emotionally it was a tough one to choose, Rose the Englishman and brilliant ambassador for English golf, and Garcia in his 47th start in a major deserved to be called a major champion, simply because of his major talent in the game!!
Needless to say, on what have been Seve's 60th birthday, Garcia (after a few dodgy putting strokes) got over the line at the 19th hole and I haven't met a single person who isn't delighted (including Paul who had a fiver each way on him!!)
Rose will get his chance again and already with a major under his belt, I'm sure he'll quickly get over his near miss.
A great turnout at the weekend in the Cifer events, 110 single entries on a foggy Saturday and 43 pairs on Sunday, the start of the season is upon us and long may this weather continue!
Alex Cowey took the Cifer Singles with a super 76, nett 66 on Saturday, winning £62.00 and in the pairs Cifer Challenge, Tom Beckenham and Jake Meredith won with 46 points and took home £52 each. Well done guys!
