It’s been so nice to hear of everyone’s achievements this month! The Whatsapp group has been pinging daily with handicap cuts, competition wins and hole in ones! It seems like the season is finally starting to go back to normal and I hope you have all been enjoying playing golf again. Now that the summer holidays are fast approaching, I’m sure there will be even more to report next month!
Starting off with the girls from Lutterworth, both Wheeler sisters have cut their handicaps. Katie Wheeler reduced hers from 48 to 46 and Lucy Wheeler had a massive drop from 40-28 after shooting 55 points in a stableford! Lila Bisset has also had an excellent golfing month. After winning the ladies stableford with 43 points and then breaking 90 for the first time, Lila went on to win the 1971 cup with a nett 64 and a handicap cut to 26. Following on from this, she placed third in the Robert Rock Junior Tour at Wharton Park in the U18 girls section. After all of these fabulous scores, her handicap has been cut to 21.8! Amazing results from all three girls, the hard work is paying off.
That is not all for the Little Foxes...Ella Cunnigham won the 9 hole stableford with 22 points and has had a handicap cut to 33. Henrietta Geddes has also had a handicap cut to 30.7 after shooting 100 gross, nett 66 winning the Paula Taylor cup at Beedles Lake. Congratulations girls! I have also had a couple of comments from some of the Little Foxes parents mentioning the older girls, the Little Foxes seeing them as role models and playing with them on the course. It’s fantastic to see the bond between the younger and older girls growing; I hope this continues in the future.
Now for some of our older girls, the most noticeable thing this month being Ruth Brooks’ hole in one at Kibworth! This was her second one in 10 months! Hannah Garner-Stephens also shot 37 points at Rothley in the Tuesday stableford and some news from myself, I topped the ladies leader board in the Saturday competition with 35 points. The conditions for the first nine holes being rain, with a thundery downpour on the 8th, barely being able to see 10 metres in front of you, it felt more like winter golf than summer golf!
A couple of weeks ago I sent out the entry form for my captain’s day taking place at Rothley Park on Sunday 2nd August. Although the deadline for the entries is the 24th July, I’m asking if all entries could be sent to me as quickly as possible as with the new guidelines and lockdown rules, planning my day has become harder and so I would be most grateful if I could receive them ASAP. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope you all have a good golfing month and some luck falls upon you like it did to Paige when she met Charley Hull at Cosby last month!
