The World waited with baited breath to see the outcome of perhaps the biggest tournament of the golfing calendar – The Annual Fifteen Design Stagnetti Open.
The sun was shining and conditions couldn’t have been more perfect for the tournament and with Ollie heading in as firm favourite having played the course just 6 days previously and also being quite nifty with the sticks, the bookies were having a field day taking bets from around the world. Play was delayed for nearly an hour after Simon left the trophy at the office and despite the police escort, he still managed to get lost on his way back.
With the light fading it was important that we started as soon as possible so there was no time for warm ups or stretching, just straight in at the deep end. The random selection meant the starting order was Simon, Lofty, Michelle, Catherine, Steve and Ollie bringing up the rear. There was a few nerves on the first hole but we all managed to play through the first 6 holes with little distance between the leader and last place.
The back 6 would prove to test the golfing abilities of the entire team with Stagnettis toilet hazard and the constant temptation of Mrs Stagnettis cleavage proving too much for some players!
As we entered the final hole, no one had a clue who was leading. Lofty, Steve and Catherine all achieved impeccable holes-in-one, Simon found the car park whilst tackling Stagnettis Snake and Ollie and Michelle did there best to not fall over the hazardous terrain of the course. As the balls dropped for the final time, we retired to the bar to get refreshments and let the officials tally up the final scores. We waited with anticipation as the final placings were revealed…
6th – Catherine
5th – Ollie
4th – Michelle
3rd – Simon
2nd – Steeeeeeve
And in first place and 2013 Stagnetti Open Champion… LOFTY!!!
