St Enodoc overcome Mullion

The first round of the CTC was played at West Cornwall vs Mullion on Sunday.

The foursomes matches were tightly contested with 3 of them finishing on the 18th.

J.Irwin & S.Welch             W 1up                   G. Popperwell & T.Neal

M.Masters & S.Buse       W 1up                   R.Kerton & E.Williams

Irwin and Welch were first out and proceeded to hold up the field, successfully, with a little help from the wind which blew a cool 20mph breeze all day. They were 1 down with 3 to play and made a birdie on the last to win the match.

Cruse and Bradley worked well together, both hitting the ball very well and only dropping 3 shots over the 17 holes played. 

Chapman and Hovil were steady all day long and battled to the 1 up victory.

Masters and Buse were 1 down with 2 to play and made a great comeback with a birdie on the last to put St.Enodoc 4-0 up.
Joe Combellack played the 9th man position and was 4 down after 5, Combellack brought it back but eventually ran out of holes and lost 1 down.
