The sun shone as if it were a summers day at Newquay Golf Golf Club, where Tehidy squared up to the opposition of St. Mellion in the semi-final of the CAW Cornwall Bowl Team Event.
The team wasted no time in stamping their authority on the match and very quickly had St. Mellion under pressure. Following last weekends success in the Frank Wills semi-final, the Bowl team were attempting to emulate the feat and proved they were up to the task.
Simon Gregor and partner ’Nidge’ Hosking set the pace with a 5 & 3 victory, which was matched by the pairing of Danny Chambers & Carl Band. Although Ed McDonald & Mike Williams lost out on the 18th hole, Mark Hollis and Paul Caddy restored a two match advantage and an unassailable lead of 3 – 1, when they won their match on the 14th green.
Mike Burr & Les Driver applied the finishing touch with a win on the 16th hole to cap a 4 – 1 winning score-line.
Tehidy Park will now play China Fleet in the Final, which is a copy of the Frank Wills Final. With both Finals being played on the same day, at the same venue it promises to be a great day out for both Cornish Clubs.
Can Tehidy achieve the unthinkable by reaching a third final when they play Trevose this weekend (17 Feb) in the semi-final of the CTC at St. Enodoc? Watch this space!
