A gloomy day in comparison with what we have been used to here at Hockley all week, turned into a chilly one by the 11th hole and the few spectators out on the course were of the hardy type!  The 10th saw Karen hit a sweet shot right of the hole, up onto the bank and then round again to finish 12 ft from the hole in 2 while Bridget hit to within 8 ft from the front, left bunker for 3.  Karen two putted to get back to 2 down.

Bridget went onto win by 3&2 and is this year’s Challenge Salver Champion.  Congratulations to Bridget and well done to all players both on Monday and those here during the matchplay encounters.

Special thanks to Doug Tate, Course Manager and his marvellous team of greenkeepers who have had a tough week maintaining this magnificent course with very little help from the sky above.  Let’s hope you get some rain soon for the course Doug!
