Gents County Championship – Rd 2

Richard Simmons set off in Rd 2 in pursuit of a third County Championship Title against last years Runner-Up Matt Richards of West Cornwall. Sadly for the TPGC interest it was Richards and not Richard that took hold of this match, and he gradually built a commanding four hole lead, which transpired to be enough when he finally recorded a win on the 15th green.

All eyes from the TPGC perspective were now on the 'forever young' Andrew Clotworthy as he stepped onto the first tee against the second seed, Chris Fleming of Perranporth. Nothing could separate the two after 18 holes, so for the second time in a day Clotworthy entered into extra holes. On this occasion it proved not to be a happy ending for Andrew as he was eventually beaten on the second extra hole (20th).

Well done to all of the TPGC entrants, the Club Captain and Members are very proud of you all. All attention to the B Team tomorrow morning…tee-off at 8.25 a.m.
