"The Year of the Rookie"
2007 was a great Masters for lots of different reasons. There were 24 of us for a start, there was some superb scoring (the highest ever masters for scoring and the highest winning points total @ 118), a great social, hedge police, me and Spazza losing the plot on Saturday night(or was that a different year? or every year?
We welcomed several newbies including The McFee sisters , Nishter, Ian McKee, Ricky T, Eric and Matt Spooner and those trousers!
2007 saw the first ever "Freddie Couples Day" where we all did our best to add some colour to the Saturday. No-one however could beat Ricky T's quick ton in the pro shop on his infamous canary yellow ensemble and he duly walked off with the trophy.
Day 1 was probably the highest scoring day in Masters history (check if ya like...). 46 for JC (still a Masters record) and a 44 from newboy and 14 handicapper Mr Ritchie McFee. Me and the Pig also got off to a good start with 38's.
The weekend will be remembered for Ritchies rookie win and Innes didn't do too bad either!!! Only Mr Christopher prevented their one-two, his 114 a very fine effort and a winning score most years.
We introduced The Mike Harris Trophy for 4th place as Mike always ended the weekend just outside the trophies...and he did again finishing 5th!
