The team then played Burgham Park - the course looked good in the late evening sun and the team played well, especially Johnny Moffet whose 6 birdies in 9 holes suggests a lot to come in the future. We won 11-1.Next match: Alnwick away.

NNL Match 6 and the Macadam Foursomes
Having miraculously won last year's Armstrong Trophy, I thought it would be only symmetrical to win the MacAdam foursomes this year (the two boards are at opposite sides of the same wall). The only trouble was that despite the combination of my partner's skill and my handicap we met David Chrimes and John Rhind in sparkling form; they are both fellow members of Northumberland's premier golf society (the Black Swan Golf Society) but not even this had prepared me for the excellence of their game - particularly their short game. We walked in very quickly (I always think its good in matchplay to get beyond the 10th hole, and we managed that. Just). In consolation it was a glorious afternoon and the course was in excellent condition.
