6th - Bedale 30

After a very frustrating home result last week we saw a fantastic response at Bedale this week on what wasn't a easy day. Fellow title challengers Blackwell struggled which means bishop now have a 5 point led going into the final game of the season at Blackwell next week. We need 2 points (5th place finish) to secure the Dales Alliance League title on our first attempt of asking. I'm sure the whole of the golf club will be rooting for us to cap of a magnificent season.

All the best to all who's playing.

Clark Cup Semi Final

 On a calmish sunny afternoon Bishop travelled to Boldon to take on South Moor in the Clark Cup semi final.

The 1st game of the day paired two of the County's heavyweights as Jamie took on County Champion Chris Handy. An under par 18 holes for Jamie wasn't good enough meaning the 19th was required. Unfortunately Chris Handy holed a long birdie putt to win the sudden death hole.
Craig Wren continued his seasons fine matchplay form with a comfortable 4&2 victory over his opponent.
Wayne Hewitt continued the sudden death theme unfortunately going down on the 19th hole.
This left the match 2 - 1 to South Moor with both Steve Ridley and Graham Milne to come home.
Graham also went down the 19th after his opponent missed a short putt to win the match for South Moor on the 18th. Graham was well up for the test as he flew his wedge shot to around 5 foot and holed the birdie putt to win his match.
Almost simultaneously Steve was finishing the 18th and after finding the sand off the tee he made a comfortable par meaning he won 1up after his opponent lost a ball.
This meant Bishop won 3-2 in what is proving to be a very successful season so far. Wynayrd beat Ramside 3-2 on the same day meaning the final is Bishop v Wynyard on the 3rd September at Tyneside golf club.


The Games Committee have now conducted 2 activities where they monitored the pace of play in competitions.  There are 2 main reasons for play being slow on competition days.

1 – Tee time intervals at 8 minutes – The potential solution (games committee to agree this) to this is from 2018 we will increase tee time intervals to 10 minutes, this will certainly help the field play faster and the course will not feel as congested (like we now see in midweek medals).

2 – Groups not keeping pace with the group in front – The fix for this is education, the club need to educate all players that they must keep up with the group in front and not simply ahead of the group behind.

The two competitions monitored showed that the Botcherby Cup (stableford) was a faster competition than the June medal (stroke play), this was expected as stroke play is a longer format.

After getting through the first 3 rounds Bishop were drawn away to Alnwick Castle "B" in a 4th round match. On a wet windy day Graham Milne kicked us off, despite having to give a staggering 14 shots away to a in form 16 handicapper Graham pulled through winning the game 1up. Chris Thompson followed but fell to a 5 handicapper making it 1-1. Stephen Ridley unfortunately followed Chris after losing to Alnwicks team manager St...eve after giving 6 shots. Callum Hoggart was winning most the way around the course but unfortunately ran out of steam and lost 1 down on the last also giving 8 shots and confirming the defeat. In the final match Wayne Hewitt played a 2 handicapper who's recent good golf continued as he defeated wayne 2&1.

A tough pill for the team to swallow after the recent great run but as they say you can't win them all.

Thank you to all the players in the "B" Squad it's been a honour managing a great set of lads. Finally good luck to Steve and the lads of Alnwick Castle "B" in the next round

In the final week of the Teesside Union season saw Bishop travel to Eaglescliffe with a 2 point lead needing 11 points to secure the league title on away points. After a nervy finish Curtis Lowes caulked the first point on the board for the team with John "The Dentist" Howarth quickly extracting his opponent 7&6 taking the total to 3. Callum "Lemonade" Hoggart's win made it 5-5 after 5 matches. Our Local Texan James Glenn birdied 8 out of the 1st 10 holes winning the birdie fest 3&2. At this point we trailed Eaglescliffe 9-7 but this was soon rectified with Jamie Birkbeck edging out his opponent winning 2&1 making it 9-9. Whilst a huge number of supporters & players were stood tense on the hill of the 17th tee Wayne Hewitt came over the brow of the hill and gave the thumbs up to his win on the last hole confirming 11 points and the league title. This wasn't the end of the night whilst sat at 11-11 Adam "Ed Sheeran" Peart delivered once again with his half point and drawing the game 12-12 and maintaining our 2 point league. What a fantastic achievement by every single person in and around the team! A massive thanks must go to David Jobey and his team for the condition of our course this season. Thanks must go to the staff in the clubhouse for looking after and feeding us throughout the season. Yet again thank you too our loyal caddies & supporters who continually support the team but most of all thanks to every single player who's wore that blue shirt with pride this season and can deservedly so can now be called.........CHAMPIONS 😃😃😃 Alan Barker Team Manager

TSU Week12

Week 12 saw the Bishop boys make the journey to Brass Castle in Middlesbrough. The matchs started in sunny warm conditions but soon changed into murky muggy conditions meaning a few matches finishing in poor light. James "The Texan" Glenn kicked off with a half after an impressive par from inside the trees on 18. Jamie "67" Birkbeck holed a monster putt on the last to win his match and "Big John" Howarth had an impressive 5&3 victory. The scratch section was wrapped up with a... good win from Paul "The Umpire" King who came back from being 2 down with 5 too play winning 1up with an impressive up and down on the 18th.

In the handicap section Steve "Mid Amateur" Ridley continued his impressive unbeaten run with an easy victory with a few holes to spare. Craig "The Sniper" Wren continued his winning streak with a 1up gritty victory.

Result = Brass 13 Bishop 11

After Eaglescliffe impressive 19 - 5 home win Bishop's lead is now down to 1 point. Massive home game next week to Wynyard and it is looking like it'll go down to the last game of the season. This will be Eaglescliffe away in what is looking like a winner takes all showdown.
