As I mentioned in my previous blog, a big match was about to take place between Team Naga Munchetty and Team Sir Clive Woodward. A week after the Ryder Cup, this was our own mini Ryder Cup including three fourball betterball matches. 

Since the beginning of the year, we've been learning and improving our game through the T2CGolf programme, devised by Clive and Dan Grieve, head pro at Woburn Golf Club. With six players on one team and six on the other, at the end of the year we'll discover which team has reduced their handicaps the most - a total combined percentage. Here is team Naga ...

In the meantime, Sunday's match was an opportunity to get together, meet all the members of the opposing team, but of course, both sides wanted to win!

I was paired with Lee Pomery, his wife is also part of Team Naga, but that partnership doesn't work on the golf course, but I was happy as Lee is very relaxed and is a very useful 14 handicapper. Our opposition was Dan Grieve off scratch and Richard off 8 - excellent, we received shots. I won't bore you with a hole by hole account, but it was fabulous game and I'm delighted to say that after playing the 18th all square, we finished 1up.

The match behind featured Katie, Lee's wife, who is a putting demon and much to Clive's frustration along with his partner Julia, another single figure golfer, Katie played beautifully off 24 and with her partner, James, a six handicapper also playing very well, it was a convincing win for Team Naga.

Naga partnered Lisa Skelton, and whilst some good golf was played, it was the pairing of Ollie and Andy for Team Clive that clinched a point.

Our team captain was delighted, and it has given us all another boost. I should point out that we are trailing Team Clive on the handicap stakes, but there's still some time left and at the end of the day, a WIN is a WIN! We were happy to celebrate with our prize winning champagne.
