Our \"A\" Team was in action this morning at Tehidy Park GC in a 1st round tie against West Cornwall. Our reporter on the spot tells us that the rough there is deep and thick and best avoided. Is was perhaps contact with this stuff that saw Joe Cruse and Rod Frost 5 down after eight holes - on the 9th Joe holed a twenty footer and their opponents missed a three footer to reduce the deficit. After that Joe and Rod turned on the afterburners and came out 2 & 1 winners.
Our golfing twins, the Walsh brothers Josh and Ollie, demolished their opponents 4 & 3. Have you thought for a moment about the difficulties of playing foursomes against identical twins ? It could become quite confusing.
Sadly Jack Irwin and Charlie Runnnalls could not maintain the momentum and lost. Neverless the 2 matches to 1 victory was enough to see the team through to another match in the afternoon. Sadly our roving reporter went walkabout and the result of the afternoon tie is not known, but will be posted when known. (Please read on)
Result of the afternoon match against Truro was a 2 matches to 1 loss - but by the narrowest of margins. Josh & Ollie Walsh won 1up, Joe Cruse & Rod Frost lost 3 & 2 whilst Charlie Runnalls & Jack Irwin lost on the 19th !
