The Seniors' Team continued their unbeaten run with a narrow win at Torwoodlee on the 27th July.
With heavy rain forecast there was considerable doubt if the match would go ahead but when the teams assembled it was decided to venture forth and brave the unseasonable conditions. Despite heavy overnight rain and the constant wet conditions the Torwoodlee course was in pretty good condition for play.
First back in the clubhouse was the very experienced pairing of Tom Litster and David McKean who edged out their opponents with a one hole victory. David Wright and Brian Robson found themselves 4 down after 4 holes but the pair dug deep to earn a well deserved half by the end of their encounter. Brian and David have now played 10 Senior Matches together and they remain undefeated with 9 wins and one match halved.
In Match 3, Torwoodlee evened up the score with Vic Roberts and Sam Walker going down 3&2.
The next 2 matches were very close affairs with Ian Pemberton and Ian Mewett and the pairing of Gordon Fisher and Neil Byers both halving their matches.
With the match score at 2 and half points each the teams waited in the clubhouse for the final match to conclude. George Cunningham and Mike Wilson were obviously enjoying the course conditions and arrived in the clubhouse a full half hour after everyone had finished their lunch! George took great delight in informing his Peebles team mates that he sank the winning putt on the 18th green for a one hole victory.
Despite the weather, players from both teams enjoyed the match and Peebles continued their winning form with a 3 and a half to 2 and a half victory.
Special thanks must go to David McKean who responded to the early morning phone call to play following a last minute call off.
THE NEXT MATCH FOR THE SENIORS IS AGAINST GLENCORSE ON TUESDAY 25TH AUGUST.
