Peebles Win Tight Encounter as the "IAN's" Take It

The seniors schedule continued with what was a tightly fought encounter against St Boswells, Peebles finally wining through 3½ to 2½.

Roger Scott & Tom Litster set the standard with a victory, 1 up, over the visitors captain. Indeed it was groundhog day as "ACE" Tom in defeating the St Boswell skipper, repeated last year's victorious encounter. However this was achieved with not a single hole in one, much less the brace he recorded in last seasons match. In play bookies were heard to take a collective sigh of relief.

Next out, on their first outing for 2017, were David Barr & Keith Brunton who went down the 18th all square and halved the hole to secure a vital ½ point.

Stevie Matthews & Gordon Fisher were well beaten 4&3 by a very soundly balanced St Boswells pairing. Gordon played solo last week & may have thought at times, he had been left battle single handed again this week. However he did achieve a first - as the scratch golfer in the 4 ball. Just goes to prove that it is never to late for an old dog to present with a new scratch.

Vic Roberts & Alan Jackson had titanic encounter in their match. Coming home with a victory, 1up, their point bounced Pebbles into the lead again.

Another new pairing for the 2017 season, Sam Walker & Jim Lyle fought a valiant rear guard action, however they eventually succumbed 3&1.

Five ties down, one to go & the match all square.

Cometh the hour cometh ….. the Ian's.

Recording their second victory of the season, Ian PEMBERTON & Ian MEWETT romped home 7&5, in what the opposition described as a near scratch golf.

So with that last point, the Peebles team secured victory by the narrowest of margins. Another big thanks to all concerned in maintaining our momentum, which we look to roll into next week's game when we host Broomieknowe.

The team sheet for the game on the 30th, again at home, versus Minto will be on the seniors board from Tuesday 16th.
