The 2014 Primary Matchplay was held at the Gaudet Lucet Golf Club in Droitwich. One of EWBG’s favourite venues and where the International will be held in mid September.
On Sunday afternoon we held the draw, this year with the use of EWBG mugs, last year golf balls. What will the Chairman think of next year.
The first and second rounds going off in the morning, with Radford and Eakin getting their separate matches to the 18th. Two second round matches went out in the afternoon.
Quarter finalist went out Tuesday morning followed by the Plate, Two semi final matches went out in the afternoon to play in increasingly poor weather. Sadly this continued through the night. The plate saw two B1’s coming back to form, both with good scores over 40. Billy McAllister on 42, our Captain Barry Ritchie on 45. Two splendid rounds.
Sadly the finalists Derek Field and Malcolm Elrick have had to postpone their final to the arrival day of the Masters in August. They both receive 25 Order of Merit points until the decider.
EWBG were made to feel most welcome at Gaudet Luce and Holiday Inn express and may we extend our thanks to all their help.
