Lost 2 and 1 in the 1st tie and feel like a mug!

3 down at the turn with a concession at 2 when I thought I played the wrong ball only to find on leaving the green it was sitting in the rough, then chipped off a path straight into a ditch at 6 to affective give him a hole. On the front 9 was not playing well. 

Managed to get back to all square playing 16, which he is getting 2 strokes. I'm on the green for 3 putting for par. He rolls his putt to 2 feet, which I concede and ask him is that 5 nett 4 and he replies 5 nett 3. I thought I had a putt for a half but accept his call and move on to the 17th. When I get to the tee I've re-counted and ask him if he is sure it was 5 since I counted 6. He then re-counts and confirms it is 6 (i.e he has just given me an incorrect score, and loss of hole), this has never happen to me before so I play on being one down. Again at 17 I have a putt for 4, he is 3.5 feet for 5 nett 4, my brain is in melt down, I miss the putt and concede the match, he still needed to make the putt for the win and his short putting had been atrocious all night. Kicking myself for not imposing rule on 16 but felt partially responsible for getting it wrong in the 1st place.

Anyway 2 glasses of wine later the forum can be cathartic. 

Oh and I was the reigning champion for this trophy and I've gone out in the 1st round.

After Phil's win 60 is just a number.

Saying that in the over 60s got handed the tie because my 71 old opponent doesn't like playing in the rain.
