On Sunday 29th October St Enodoc GC took on Newquay GC in the first round of this years President's Trophy ko competition at Merlin GC.
Never an easy draw the Team Captain picked a squad of older stalwarts and some new faces. First out was Andy Burt, who forgot his golf shoes and the Team Captain had to shoot back to Wadebridge and pick them up before the start. Andy lost his match against Brian Anderson so 1-0 to them.
Next was Danny Hoare playing Mac Murlowski another loss for the club 2-0, Neil Jolly playing Daryl Rowe followed behind Danny and also lost so now 3-0 down.
Next the category 2 players with Dennis Brown out first playing Alan Turner, Dennis played extremely well and won comfortably 2&1, this was followed by John Rowe beating Haydn Brown and Norman Evans triumphing over Rob Moule, the score now 3-3.
Last but not least the category 1 players with Martin Trees playing Dave Chapman. Martin won his match 3&1 so now St Enodoc were 4-3 up with Andy Beare playing Pete Rogers and last man out Rod Frost against Matt Milburn with just either player needing a win to secure victory for the team. Unfortunately both players met strong opposition on the day and lost their matches so St Enodoc lost overall 5-4 a close fought contest with good golf from both teams.
