Swansea Golf Club Report 14th December 2019
Still awaiting the start of summer, the unpredictable weather and intermittent showers caused the cancellation of the day’s scheduled Ambrose event, generously sponsored by Swansea Pharmacy. The Ambrose event will now be played Saturday the 21st and will start at the special time of 10.30 so that members can attend the annual Swansea Christmas parade.
Some hardy members did brave the less than pleasant starting conditions for a single stableford competition.
Winner Max Hall 38 pts Runner Up Len Evans 37 pts
Super Pins 4/13th Mal Sinclair 7/16th Max Hall
All other events for the week seemed to make way for pre-Christmas festivities.
18th Ladies Monthly Medal – Stroke
21st Ambrose – Sponsored by Swansea Pharmacy – Start time 10.30
A gushy reporter told Phil Mickelson, "You are spectacular, your name is synonymous with the game of golf. You really know your way around the course. What's your secret?"
Mickelson replied, ”The holes are numbered.”
