Mail on Sunday

Simon Gregor (Team Captain) and his team travelled to Treloy for a difficult first round tie in the Mail on Sunday Team Classic.

The team of Chris Hoyle, Phil Andrew, Lee Medlen, Tom Chapman and Carl Band put up a brave fight around the course that was always going to favour the home side.

Chris came off second best in the opening match, but the experience of Phil Andrew levelled the match with his win over Matt Milburn. With Tom Chapman recording an impressive win in match four, and Carl Band losing in match five to Richard Hamilton the players and caddies gathered around debutant Lee Medlen.

Having been behind from the first hole Lee battled hard, eventually levelling his match with just two holes to play. Sadly there was to be no 'cinderella story' on this occasion, as with two solid pars his opponent claimed the decisive point for Treloy.

A good effort from the team, and nice to see TPGC back competing in the event.
