    Welcome to the thread for the 2nd memorial inter cc match between SEL and Wgt Amigos in honour of the larger than life Brian "Shovlovin" Shovlin. I'm sure that everyone who came into contact with Brian will agree he was a true character with a great sense of humour. Never one to mince his words he always said it like it was and had a great love for the word Twat, so much so this carried over into the naming of his World Cup squads. I always enjoyed dealing with and playing with Brian and it's a great honour to be involved in getting this memorial together with our friends at the Amigos. A massive thank you to Vivian for all of your help in pulling this together and ironing out the crinkles over the past weeks.

    In our last encounter I think everyone got so drunk nobody remembered the score, it's what Brian would have wanted and I expect nothing less in this one. I've tried to do my best matching the pairs up taking into account tiers, averages and locations but it's never easy, hopefully everyone is happy and please don't lose sight of why we're doing this. To have some fun and laughs with old friends, maybe a couple of pints (in my case) and pay our respects to Shov on his favourite course.

    Match Report - jhusjr vs mingos01 on Mobile

    RSG, B9, 12 greens, high winds

    We were both hitting and hoping into the wind.  I took the first hole with a par.  Dropped a slick 18 footer on 13 to then go 2 UP.  3 UP after a birdie at the par 5.  Matching pars on 15 left the match dormie going into 16.

    Luis gave it his all to keep it going, pitching into the cup on the par 3 but it rattled out.

    jhusjr wins 3&2

    Just finished my match with severegolfer. Cruz is definitely a Tour Master on the rise; only been playing a month and played me solid. We started with birdies, then I made a lucky putt to go up one. Up by two with one close to the pin on #3. Cruz got one back with some clean play on four. With my air shot and a nice birdie Cruz makes it all square. We were both close on 6; mine drops and Cruz's stops right at the edge of cup. I was feeling good about holding on to the lead on 7 with a nice shot that would save par with the air shot; Cruz drains a very nice 13 footer and we're all square and headed for eight. Cruz finds the rough short into the headwind on 8, and I get lucky to inside 2 feet and go 1 up heading over to 9. Cruz drives the green and just barely misses the eagle, so we finish with birdies and me one up.

    Good player and good company! Big fun!
