The 16th Wedge Trophy match report

Most controversial or shameful moments in Wedge history; 1) James “Turncoat” Brodie changing teams; only to find he remained on the losing side. Poetic. 2) Sarah “Judas” Hedge betraying her Deal Captain husband; first by playing for the opposition, and then by getting pregnant! 3) Bowesgate! This one was pure shame. Shameful, even relative to

Yes, on Friday evening it looked to be shaping up for a classic Spring Wedge on the Kent coast – rousing, and frankly arousing, stuff! 40mph ice cold winds and snow,

The 14th playing of The Wedge Trophy

With one of the biggest Wedge fields formed in recent history, this 12 a-side battle was always going to be a belter.

Walton has played second fiddle again

Sadly for those who have already read the summary of TATTCORCPGCWT (The Assistant To The Captain Of Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club Wedge Team), I am woefully short of facts and figures to dazzle you with.
