On an overcast, dry day at Clandon Regis GC all arrived in time for bacon rolls and coffee before starting at 0830.  The course was in fine condition although the greens were slower than usual due to recent heavy rain.  We played 4BBB before lunch but only 3 carried on for 9 holes afterwards.  Doc Watson kindly made up our numbers despite playing with a shoulder injury.  Regrettably Adrian Platt fell forward whilst teeing his ball, smashed his gasses into his face, and retired hurt.  Clandon has given us a good day for three years with Tony managing it as a Members Day but players have found the heavy traffic a challenge.  Tony has moved to Liphook and, to avoid morning traffic, is joining Blackmoor: both teams agreed that a move to Blackmoor on 7 Oct 20 was worth trying.
