Stories of fantastic fight back to win an important match?

3 posts in this topic

I had our clubs 5th summer league tie & it was a must win game.  If we now win our last game then will be champions, as well as a draw if we fail to win.

I was 5 down after 6 to a player who was -3 & I was +2.  At that point it's safe to say you don't expect to win but you will try none the less.  I hate giving up & as soon as I get one hole back I know he might get nervous, which he did.  So I then went on to win the 7th, 8th & 9th to finish 2 down through the turn.  I then won the 12th to a par (which is a very long hole), 13th to a birdie, 14th to a birdie & then 17th to a birdie to win my game 2 & 1.  It's safe to say I need to start better in match play.

It is such a great feeling & I wanted to share that on here.

Has anyone had the same results?

Nice!  I have not had a comeback like that.  But in my first year playing in a league, I had my best round during the final to hold off several challengers to win the league.  We had to play in the final group together.  They thought I would get nervous because it was really my first year playing golf.  But I played well and won.

I think I would have felt the same but to come out on top against the odds is more thrilling than anything I've ever won.

I think it helps us enjoy the game more , knowing that when you're almost down & out, out of moves that you can still comeback & restore your pride.  The same goes for playing in your first important match, it surely would only leave us with positive memories.

It's probably worth saying that I was 5 up through 8 in our final summer league game last year & only needed a half point to secure our 3.5, 2.5 win & I was taking down the 18th hole.  The guy birdied 9,10,12,13,15,16,17.  I needed a birdie on 17 to keep it all square.

I didn't crumble, god I didn't even make a bogey on the back 9, but using that in my head I knew I had to dig deep!


Chances of it happening again.....well I'd rather not be in the position of 5 down through 6 EVER again haha!

Hope you enjoy your golf & go on to do well for your golf club, I'm 27 now but remember my first winter league games as a Junior, I got beat a lot of the time but still enjoyed it, but it's not ideal.  Great that you can win your first competitive team match.  Something not many can say they have done!

Cheers!
