For the fourth weekend in a row Club Captain, David Ryder led one of his teams into battle, and on this occasion Tehidy Park defeated Trevose in a pulsating match by a score-line of 3 – 2, with the deciding match winning on the 19th hole !
With the overall score-line finely balanced at 2 – 2 the fifth foursome match finished all square, and therefore made their way to the Par 3, 1st Hole, to be their 19th on this occasion. The tee shot of Malcolm Bennetts (Tehidy Park) narrowly missed the green, leaving the door ajar for the Trevose pairing, but to their disappointment they were to find the water hazard with their tee shot. When Phil Robbins (Tehidy Park) safely chipped over a bunker onto the putting surface, a straight forward two-putt, if there can be such a thing in the circumstances, secured the victory and a berth in the Quarter-Final against The Point on the weekend of 7/8 January at a venue to be confirmed.
- Bobby Stephens & Peter Turner Won 6&4
- Dale Band & David Bailey Lost 2&1
- David Collins & Steve Rogers Lost 2 Holes
- Tony Barbagallo & Vince Barton Won 3&2
- Phil Robbins & Malcolm Bennetts Won 19th
The Captain has one more match to lead out before the New Year, which will be the Quarter-Final of the CTC when Tehidy Park will face Perranporth on 27 November. Venue to be confirmed (awaiting confirmation from West Cornwall)
