Niall,


After several efforts to arrange a date (but mostly inactivity from me I'm afraid) I've given Ian our match. Unfortunately my diary didn't pan out as I thought it would this year and I've not been north of the border as much as I thought I would.


Cheers,


James

Sorry to hear that but hopefully we'll see you some time before the years out.

Iíve been trying to contact Tim Gallant for a while with no success.  Has anyone heard anything from him in the last few months?

Likewise ongoing family crise at this end and other work stuff means that I am going to have to cede our tie to Adam.
Many apologies all round and good luck for the next stage!

Repeated attempts to get a game organised with Sean have proved fruitless and I have reluctantly accepted his offer to concede.

A glorious November day for golf, James Reader and I finally met for our much overdue match (entirely my fault!). I lured James to the West Links in the hopes of taking advantage of home course knowledge, but his play proved to be much too strong as he took the match 1up.


The quality of the golf was very strong, and I can't imagine James was more than a few over par the whole way around. The best shot of the day was James' superb iron into Redan, which landed and trickled out to about 5 feet.


Well played James, and I look forward to seeing where you and David play your next match.

Thanks for a great day Tim.  Itís always an absolute treat to play North Berwick and it was great to finally meet.


My shot into the Redan was definitely the highlight although Tim was too polite to mention that I missed the putt.  In fact thinking through my round as I was driving back I realised that I didnít actually hole a single putt in the entire round.  I know we often complain that ďi didnít hole a thingĒ but today that was literally true - 18 gimmes!  I hope David is feeling equally generous with his concessions in the next round!

The practice Round at Ladybank must have helped!

Since I'm out of the country until May 2023 I'm out... obviously!
