Nine is the perfect number ….
Sweep organiser Colin Hodges and sweep "jester" Joe Knight both made holes in one on the 12th hole last weekend in their respective sweep on the same day.
Colin had been away from golf for a couple of weeks trying to come to terms with not making it to Gleneagles in the recent Lombard qualifier. He hit a near perfect nine iron that checked up, spun a little to the right and fell in the hole on the last roll. This was Colin's third one, two at Orsett and the other was on an away weekend in France.
Joe on the other hand made his very first one. At the same 12th hole, this was his description of it…
"Such a brilliant 9 iron that never left the flag, it pitched on the green, ran up to the hole and fell in, the best one ever seen on the 12th I believe".
Holes in one are rare birds but two within an hour of each other is pretty amazing.
Orsett Cadets had more to celebrate last week as well. For the first time in their history 4 Cadets represented Essex under 18s in the same team on the same day. Bailee Curran, Zach Chegwidden, Will Percival and Cassidy Steffans all played in triangular match against Hertfordshire and BB&O.
Another Cadet, 12 year old, Sophie Wheeler has recently won the English Ladies Golf Union Abraham Trophy. She topped the table with a great nett 75, one over par in extremely windy conditions at Royal Cromer. It`s another pat on the back for Cadet Organiser, Mark White who has definitely got something going with the Cadets.
They now have a quarter final in the Youth shield next weekend against Clacton at Benton Hall, any support would be grateful.
