Matthew Burley Memorial

Share this story:

We recently competed in the Matthew Burley Memorial charity golf event held at Pavenham golf club. On a bright sunny afternoon we were the second of fourteen teams to tee off and tackle the course. With no experience of the Texas Scramble format we were venturing into the unknown and struggled over the first few holes with our short game letting us down.

We dug deep and played some impressive shots to be only two over after the front nine holes and happy we were playing well as a team. With the competition in full swing we started to produce some great holes on the back nine – Chris Henley narrowly missed out on the longest drive on the ninth & Steve produced a fine effort on the par 3 16th – going very close.

But it was definitely a great team performance with Chris Horsnell being named the short game assassin and holing puts where others failed. If only he could use his putter for every shot! After an enjoyable round of wonder shots, missed puts and plenty of laughs we retired to a fund raising dinner having not finished last and helping to raising over £450 for the charity of the Burley’s choice.Charlie (clearly the best golfer!)
