Rhubarb 2019

68 ST EDWARD’S r h u b a r b

Golf In May, just as the final pairings teed up for the final round of the USPGA on the Bethpage Black Course with one eye on the Wanamaker Trophy, so, too, the Martyrs six-man side started their rounds with the hope that they would lift the Grafton Morrish trophy in front of the St Edward’s shield which sits on the wall in the Hunstanton Golf Club. A well-presented North Hants course, complete with flowering rhododendrons and two new tees on the 3rd and 4th adding some additional 40 yards, provided the backdrop. The team included Olly Oakley (C, 2008-2013) and Tom Hargreaves (C, 2002-2007) making their debuts. Conditions were calm and two opening pars on difficult holes took

Tennis Mike Denvir, Alex Martin-Lof, Joe Burton, Cam Hoang, Oscar Costof and Giles Wordsworth faced strong opposition from the Martyrs side, Dominic Evan-Hart (F, 1989-1994), Greg Kratt (H, 2012-2017), Karl Walker (F, 1989-1994), Tim Usher (E, 1960-1965), Hugo Martin (E, 1998- 2003) and Rupert Martin (C, 2003-2008). There was an overall 7-2 win for the Martyrs. Dominic Evan-Hart (F, 1989-1994)

A birdie on the 3rd for Tim Smart (C, 2001-2006) and Peter Neal (K, 1993-1998) steadied their ship and paved the way for some good golf but scoring on the firm North Hants greens proved challenging. Andrew Marsh (C, 1978-1983) and Marcus Oates (F, 1977-1979), the undefeated pair from Hunstanton in 2017, were unable to bring their early season form to the fairways on this occasion. It was an enjoyable day but, despite all the team’s efforts, 2019 wasn’t the year for the Martyrs side. The links of Hunstanton and Royal West Norfolk will have to wait for another year. We are looking forward to it already.  Tim Smart (C, 2001-2006)
