Last Thursday, 5th April 2018, took place a new match of La Liga Seniors, this time Los Arqueros vs La Siesta.
Having beaten La Siesta 3-0 in January, and considering their surprisingly poor home results this season, this was a much tougher match than we were hoping for!
La Siesta changed their pairings and brought in one or two new faces, and it made all of the difference on the nine hole Par 3 course.
In the opening match Mike and I were given a putting master class on the slow and bumpy greens and despite being four under par gross were beaten 2&1.
However, Markus and Alan were never behind in their match and even though Alan had a hole in one on the 11th hole, and they had a string of birdies, they were still taken to the 18th where Markus secured the win with a solid par.
The final match was very even all the way round with neither side gaining an advantage and it took a nerveless four foot putt from Ian on the last green to finish with honours even. Nigel remains unbeaten in La Liga!
Congratulations to Alan for his hole in one and to the team members (other than Mike and myself) for their performance, because a draw at La Siesta is always a good result.
The results were (1.5-1.5):
Mike Jordan / Steve Bailey lost 2&1
Markus Ruulio / Alan Vowls won 1 up
Nigel Weston / Ian Conquest all square
