from Mark Robson, Senior Inter-club Captain
Just a quick note to let you know that Team Tanglewood won our second playoff match yesterday with a 44.5-35.5 victory over Wildwood Green (Raleigh).
Wildwood Green is a formidable inter-club team: finished the regular season with an undefeated record and top seed in the North Region, excellent players, challenging, well-conditioned course, well organized leadership, committed to inter-club competition, and goal oriented to win the Tom Thorpe Cup. Also, the fellowship and integrity of their players is extremely high caliber.
Team Tanglewood emphasizes team play over individual play, and by that yard-stick, we did a great job yesterday. Note the Net Team Scores:
Jim Williams and Charlie Fisher: Net 73
Tommy Birrittieri and Eddie James: Net 70
Bob Cornish and Maurice Banks: Net 77
Rodie Marovich and Mark Robson: Net 65
Our job doesn’t get any easier. We now go back to Raleigh (Fuquay Varina) where we will play Bentwinds Country Club in the North Region quarterfinals. Bentwinds finished the regular season with a 5-1-0 record, and are now 7-1-0 for the season.
Please congratulate our players when you see them, and wish us well in our next match.
