Avalon Park was the scene of a return Mini Golf challenge by Shelley. This was a determined effort and, although Riccardo played consistently well, Shelley was just too strong on the day.
Richard (of RBB) showed good sportsmanship in defeat and only growled at Shelley once when she laughed too much on a difficult hole. However he did complain to the lady in the mini golf kiosk, suggesting that there might be something faulty with the club he was allocated. The lady promised her manager would look into it. Shelley was modest in victory and promised to wash Richard (of RBB)'s handkerchief.
Richard (of RBB) said, "All credit to Shelley she played well and was just too strong on the day. I guess that all I can do is regroup and be ready for next time. A rematch was always going to be a tough call, especially as I was suffering from tired leg muscles after a lot of walking and I hadn't slept too well last night because of the heat."
It is important to remember, when
reading score cards, that they only
give a snap shot of what actually
happened. If you had been there
you would have seen some excellent
putting form Richard (of RBB).
