Tehidy Park Club Captain, Terry Clotworthy notched up another win as his Cornwall Bowl Team defeated a spirited Launceston team in their match, which was played at Merlin Golf Club. With the match level at 2 – 2 the result was decided when the remaining game, involving Treve Harris & Ken Allen was won at the 19th hole !
The result was made all the more amazing when taking into account that Harris & Allen were 2 down on their opponents, standing on the 17th tee. A three-putt from the Launceston pairing on the 17th gave Tehidy a life-line, and when Harris chipped his approach shot on the 18th hole to within two-feet of the pin extra-time was the order of the day.
With Harris & Allen being acclaimed as the heros of the hour the Cornwall Bowl team will now join their Frank Wills team mates in the Quarter Final of their respective competitions, which will be played in the New Year.
