Mitcham Friendly (Ladies)
The Ladies completed their domination of Mitcham Ladies in a home sweep.
Mitcham Ladies – Home Leg
Result: Win 4-0
Overall result: Win 8-0
The home leg was played on Saturday, 7th of August on the Dukes Course. The day started cloudy with sporadic appearance from the sun, but by the last 4 holes, the heavens opened and some of us got a right soaking.
Not withstanding the result of the first match, the Mitcham ladies brought the â€œbig gunsâ€ who were away on a White Webbs match when we played at Mitcham. But the determined Richmond team was relentless and secured another 4 – nil victory.
Apart from Kate Emmanuel who had to dash off to get married in South Africa, Richmond Park ladies kept the same partnership in the team for the home match. Jayne Maxwell kindly stepped in for Kate.
Despite the weather, everyone enjoyed their match and the great meal that followed at the Dukes Meadow’s banqueting facilities. We let the Mitcham ladies have a good look at the shiny trophy before it was taken back to Richmond Park for another year.
It was noted that the overall result in the last 48 years that trophy has been going is 22 to Richmond Park, 21 to Mitcham and 5 drawn matches. Perhaps there should be a big celebratory match for the 50th anniversary of the â€œRich Mitchâ€ match.
Overall winner for the ladies with a net 67 was Jayne Maxwell just edging out Susan Smith by virtue of a better back nine. Fiona Coombe and Joan Mulcahy took third and fourth places respectively with net 68’s.
Nearest the pin prizes were won by Jayne, Kate Emmanuel and Alison Chadwick, Kate also picked up the longest drive prize whilst Sheena Harrington was closest to the Lady Captains drive on the 8th.
Many thanks to the Lady Captain and her helpers for laying on excellent array of cakes and sandwiches. All very much appreciated.
Richard’s winning streak continued on Sunday with the men’s Captain’s Day competition with a 68, two ahead of Hiro Ushido.
Nearest the pin prizes were won by Phil Flanagan, Greg Saunders, Toby Hunt and Tim Meyer. The longest drive prize was won by Paul Grand.
Most competitors stayed behind afterwards to enjoy the delicious spread provided.
