County Week - Final Day

LRLCGA Noticeboard : County Week - Final Day

County Week Day 3 Sunday 18 th June
Leicestershire & Rutland Vs Shropshire
Heavy rain overnight and early morning had not softened the course at all for a ‘tricky’ fixture with
high flying Shropshire
Only a morning session of play today
The two foursomes parings today were led out by Vicky and Eleanor starting on the 1st tee and went
3 down very early on, however an excellent bunker shot by Vicky and a great putt by Eleanor on the
short par 3 4th hole was the start of a great rally by this pairing who fought very hard to get back to 1
down at the turn. Some excellent golf by all players on the back 9 the score was L & R 1 down on the
18th tee. A great drive from Eleanor and an excellent shot to the green by Vicky meant we had a putt
to halve the match but unfortunately the putt just slipped by leaving the score 1 up to Shropshire.
The second pairing of Karen and Rachel got off to a good start with some great play from both
players, 1 up after 9, they were both very steady and capitalised on a couple of errors off the tee by
the Shropshire pairing and secured a point on the 17th winning 2 & 1
The team were represented by Ellie, Holly and Caz in the singles matches with all 3 getting off to
good, steady starts. Ellie was 2 up quite quickly and maintained this lead until the 13th when the
Shropshire player started coming back into the game, all square after 14th Ellie eventually lost 2 & 1
Holly – having played in every session gaining some great points for the team came up against an
excellent opponent today. The Shropshire player had 3 birdies in a row on the back 9 to Hollys pars
and won 4 & 3
Caz’s match was very even throughout the front 9 – a very young opponent who hit some very clean
accurate shots and had the pace of the greens throughout the match. This was a very even game
but unfortunately Caz lost out on the 17th losing 2 & 1
The short par 4 14th hole had proved difficult for L & R all weekend and today was no exception with
quite a few of the weekend matches changing on this hole.
Result: 4 – 1 to Shropshire
The overall result for the weekend was a win for the hosts Lincolnshire winning 22 games (out of 25)
and a very much changed team of Shropshire gaining a surprising runner – up spot
Leicestershire & Rutland came 6th which was, of course very disappointing for the Captain, Vice
Captain and all the players. We hope the closer venue of Burton on Trent for next years County
Week will result in support from the County to encourage and cheer our players on.
