Under the leadership of new Club Captain Mike Fox, his CTC team defeated the resiliant challenge of Launceston Golf Club to take a step closer to defending the title they won last season.
However it was the Launceston team that took first blood as Richard Jasper and Ben Wevill defeated Richard & Peter Simmons on the 16th hole. This proved to be the only point that Launceston would gain from the morning series of matches as wins followed for Tehidy Park in the form of pairings Rob MacGregor & Ross Lawrance (4&3), Thomas Rowe & Ian Veale (3&2) and Andrew Clotworthy & Martin Langford (5&4), before Justin Barnard claimed the three-quarters of a point by winning the ninth man singles on the 17th hole.
After nine holes of the eight afternoon singles matches things were evenly balanced, but the Tehidy team exhibited why they are the current champions of Cornwall as one by one they took control.
- Rob MacGregor won on the 17th
- Tom Rowe halved (after being 5 down !)
- Richard Simmons won 2 up
- Ross Lawrance halved
- Peter Simmons won on the 13th
- Ian Veale won on the 13th
- Martin Langford lost on the 14th
- Andrew Clotworthy won on the 16th
With a final match score of 9.75 – 3 Tehidy Park will now play Bude & North Cornwall Golf Club in the semi-final in the New Year. (Feb 15 – tbc)
