Competition report 07.06 Tilly by a distance The eagerly awaited return to competitive golf began at Ramsey last Sunday. Men and Ladies teed off for an individual stableford qualifier. Fergie was on the gate collecting the competition fees as efficiently as ever and with his welcoming smile. The current fashionably golden tinged fairways ran fast and with a breezy wind it proved difficult to keep on the short stuff for some. Our Green Staff created some challenging pin placements so it was never going to be easy. First out of the blocks at 7.30am in a cool breeze were Mark Moran’s four ball and looking down the list all the familiar names were there, all thinking that the weeks of solo practice would lead to that winning score. As the morning went on the temperature got hotter and so did the golf. Joy Morris’s 4 ball led the ladies out and they were later joined by groups including Linda Webb and Jill Power. The afternoon slots also had a familiar look about them and Brian’s Kelly’s group were always going to compete. Your correspondent is privileged to take residence right behind the first tee and can bear witness to some interesting golf swings, some of which, whilst being highly effective, defy physics, but I have to say the stand out golf swing at the moment belongs to Tilly Davies. The power she displays right from the off is impressive and was always going to result in a magnificent score at some stage. On Sunday she destroyed the field ….both Men and Ladies. A fabulous round of 46 points including 12 pars and a birdie on the 16th. The remaining ladies were some distance behind but nevertheless it was a keenly fought return to competitive golf. With some nice groups of parred holes Jill Power played a steady round of 36 points to take 2nd place. Diana Cowley carded 35 points with a nice par on the last and clinched 3rd spot from Joy Morris. Tilly was back out practicing on Monday night and when asked, she just said “it was just steady golf”. When you play every day steady golf becomes that winning habit we all strive for. There’s a message there! Whilst the Men could not quite reach the standards of the leading Lady there was some good performances on Sunday. After what must have been a confusing Captain’s year so far Dave Boswell’s 38 points just edged out his Vice Captain Toto Mazzone by one point but that only achieved a tied 5th. Stu Douglas had looked well in the last few weeks as he patiently practiced in the run up to the first comp of the year so 40 points and a 4th spot cannot be too disappointing. Gary Uren just edged him out to take a creditable 3rd place on countback from Stu Douglas. The top two places saw one shot separating first and second. Simon Callow’s 41 points was not quite enough to topple Robbie Lawson who managed 42 to take the spoils of the day for the men. Well done to Tilly Davies and Robbie Lawson and indeed everyone who has made the return to competitive golf a safe, invigorating and fun experience at Ramsey. The move towards competitive golf has coincided by opening up the use of course to visitors. Just contact the Club Manager on 812244 to get the chance to play this great course. You can even play a late afternoon round at the discounted twilight rate of £15 after 6.30pm, so given the light evenings why not give it a try, you’ll love it.
