Monday 13th August, Blankney Seniors were away to Sleaford Seniors. The early games got away with a shower or two, the later games suffered some heavy downpours. This possibly affected the agreed result of a couple of halved games. The course was dry, as expected, the greens were immaculate. John Wood got nearest the pin in two for Blankney and won a 4 ball at Sleaford for his accuracy. The match finished 4 – 4, an excellent away result for Blankney. I have to mention that the Senior Captain’s partner, Bob Manser played par golf for 12 holes and underscored that with an eagle 3 at the par 5 eighth hole. I have learned that the art of Captaincy is to pick a good partner.
