We know, because it is why we play and watch and support, sometimes in sport one short moment can make all the difference; and in golf this can mean one good shot.

In the third round against Eton, Rugby had lost two matches, won one and were 2 up with two to play in the last match (so a match that should have made us two all).  It all hinged on the third match going down the 18th, all square.  A win for Rugby in this match would put us in the quarter final.

The Eton drive was in the right rough, the conditions were grim (drizzle, a stiff breeze against) and there was huge pressure on the player. He hit a fantastic 3 wood to make it to the green. Eton won the hole and the tie.

The competition began with a nervous win against Felsted, and a convincing win against Wellington.   Some fantastic golf was played by our side and it was hugely disappointing to the team and the many supporters to go down in the third round.  Well done to the Rugby pairs, who were (in no order):

Alex Fletcher and Alex Fiott
Jamie Plews and Jonnie Brewer
Johnny Walker and Michael Colclasure
David Walker and Alex Walker
Rory Browne and Huw Phillips

Our recent good results in the competition are also largely down to the motivational powers and organisational skills of the non-playing team captain, Simon Maisey.  Well done Simon and all members of the team.
