Seniors’ victory v Haste Hill

The Seniors looked to maintain their 100% home record with their ninth match of the season on Monday 7th August. The prospects of doing so looked bleak since our opponents were Haste Hill who we had only beaten once in the last ten matches against them. The day got off to a bright start notwithstanding a pessimistic weather forecast but rain won the day starting on the last hole for the first group out. Similarly the results were bright early on with the first three pairs recording wins for Rickmansworth including the best result of the day, a four and three win by Dennis Murphy and Syd Carter. Ricky’s next pair were defeated raising fears of a fightback by Haste Hill but the fifth pairing secured the victory with a half while the last group out consolidated the match win with another win to give an overall score of four and a half to one and a half. We need two more home wins against Chartridge Park and Bushey Country Club to complete the season with a full set of victories.
