County Week – Monday

Day two of the Championship Week was once again blessed with beautiful weather as 16 Clubs commenced battle in the Cornwall Club Championship (A Team) first round.

Host club Tehidy Park were drawn to play Mullion Golf Club, with the Simmons brothers, Richard & Peter leading out the three pairs of foursomes; and they gave the team the perfect start with a flawless 6&4 win over the opposition. Robert MacGregor and partner Ross Lawrance then continued their success as a pairing with a bigger win still, shaking hands with their opponents after an 8&6 victory. With an unassailable lead the third pairing of Andrew Clotworthy & Ian Veale shook hands with the final Mullion pairing with their match poised at all square after 13 holes…..the clubhouse beckoned !!

The afternoon Quarter-Final saw Tehidy Park face St. Mellion, and once again the Simmons brothers set about their task with gusto, as this time they shook hands after an 8&6 win. Veale & Clotworthy, playing as the third pairing notched up their first point with a win on the 13th green (6&5), minutes prior to another emphatic win for MacGregor & Lawrance on the 14th green (5&4).

Tomorrow's Semi-Final line-up will see Tehidy Park play Truro Golf Club (8.00 a.m.) and Newquay Golf Club against Bowood Park.

The day was tinged with sadness as news filtered through of the passing of the father (Owen Gregor) of Club Captain, Simon. It goes without saying that everyone associated with Tehidy Park Golf Club and afar send their best wishes to Simon and Alison.
