On Sunday 18th July, our Kernow cup team headed to St Austell for their next match.
Unfortunately a last minute withdrawal from one of our team, due to having to isolate, left us a player down. It left Liam and Thomas to compete against a strong St Austell team.
Thomas went first giving eight shots to Genevieve. It was all square after the third but Thomas then took the lead after the 200 yard par 3. This lead was never relinquished with Thomas ending up the victor 6 and 5.
Liam followed Thomas against a very consistent Lucy who he gave five shots. Lucy played the first well and took the lead. Despite some excellent iron play from Liam, Lucy was hitting the ball well and straight to open up a three hole advantage by the fourth. Liam gave a good fight winning two of the next three holes, but Lucy’s consistency and knowledge of the course was enough to hold the lead to the end.
The game was played in sweltering conditions with both boys conducting themselves admirably. We will welcome St Austell to St Enodoc for the return fixture in just over a week.
Well done Liam and Thomas and thanks to Nick Richards, their taxi driver.
