    A message in our forum from Ess3xGooner:

    Had a great match with Phil. Was 3 up after 14, Phil pulled it back to 1 and we halved the 17th and 18th.

    Essex boy wins 1 up

    Just like to say again, it was a fun round with Phil. good company and some good golf played. I had been to the pub earlier, so there is plenty of Merlot left for everyone, lol

    Thanks to Bery and Pip for setting this up and cheers Shov for kicking my putt in on the 18th!

    We've got the popcorn and beer ready for tomorrow night's match between Bubbs and Terry. All we need now is the link to Bubbs' twitch channel! :D I'm sure I speak for everyone that we don't really want to close our eyes and just imagine what's going on!!!! :D

    Just had a ding dong match with pipala

    Pipski wins 1 up

    But more importantly it gave me the chance to catch up with a very dear friend

    Pip you are a class act,  not bad at golf either :)

    It went all the way to the wire with Pips putting just a little to good for me.

    To all my friends at SEL

    Thank you so much for giving us all a chance of celebrating the life of our great Leader Shov.

    I am sure he is sitting up there with a glass in one hand, maybe a glass in the other hand as well lol. Watching down as two great Clubs do battle in his honour

    Thank you Harry, kind words indeed and yes it was a real pleasure to catch up with you again.

    Also what a match, nobody will believe how well we played haha but we know :). One of the best match play games I can remember having and i'm so glad it was in memory of Shov, i've got a big smile on my face.

    I took a slender 1up lead into the back 9 and we both hit 7 birdies down the stretch for me to nip it on the last. Great golf, great company and i'm raising another to Shov right now.

    Good luck to those yet to play and beware Shov has left an empty glass over the hole on 17 :)

    In a swapped fixture, Finny and I will be hitting the fairways at some point on Sunday morning. I've suggested an early start so we will both be engaging in a bit of hair of the dog. Finny is possibly going to broadcast our my antics on Twitch - details to follow.

    Bubbs wins 4 up v TMcCracken

    In truth the score did not matter at all. Terry was a great friend of Brian and played regular with him and thats all that counted for me.

    Terry missed some mid length putts, as did I. But i sunk some nice long ones and that was the only difference.

    I wanted to concede some holes to stretch it to the last hole but it doesn`t feel right doing that, Terry certainly would not have wanted that and you can bet your bottom dollar Brian would have been shouting "Heyyyyy Shag, p1ss off doing that" ;-)

    Anyway, the game lasted long enough for us to have fun.

    Terry used to play Brian daily........i still wish he could do that.

    R.I.P Brian.........i miss our conversations so much, and dont worry mate, i dont need my back watching now as ive lost interest in the things that bothered us on here.
