Charity Golf Outing 2018
Rubberatkins once again was a key supporter of an Annual Charity Golf Outing. The event is a fantastic one, featuring 28 teams aiming to raise thousands of dollars for the Texas Children’s Hospital. Our support this year, just like others, came in the form of not only entering a team but also by sponsoring the event.
After a gruelling selection process we whittled the numbers down from 4 players to........ 4 players. Team Captain was Alistair. Ably assisting him was Nick, Danny and Cary. With little to no recent play under our belts team RA arrived a little rusty to say the least but nothing a few practice balls at the venues (all water) practice range wouldn’t fix, right? Well wrong as it turns out. Maybe practicing hitting balls into water isn’t such a great idea. We’ll blame that.
Anyway we completed the 18 holes in a very respectable level par 71. Sounds pretty good right? Well turns out for a Texas Scramble playing against a bunch of Texans, level par is very average. 51 shots was the winning score, 20 under par! Highlights for the Rubberatkins team included two lengthy birdie putts, one for Nick and one for Cary, two lengthy beverage stops, and of course our team kit which received plenty of attention.
We will return next year a more impressive outfit, even if that does just mean the team kit.Back to latest news
