Frank Wills – 2nd Rd

Expecting a wild west showdown, Frank Wills’ teams from Tehidy Park and Newquay were treated to unexpectedly benign conditions at West Cornwall Golf Club.

Cloudless skies and just a gentle breeze brought out the best in both teams, with players from both sides racking up birdie after birdie.

But with the support of a posse of loyal supporters, Tehidy Park gradually edged in front, thanks to sizeable wins from Martin Trewhella and Ryan Curnow (5 and 4) and David Bailey and Andrew Teuton (5 and 3)

Andy Hancock and Nicolas Murlowski briefly gave Newquay hope with a 6 and 5 win over Danny Chambers and Scott Downing, before the James brothers, Nigel and Brian, sealed victory for Tehidy Park, with a two-up win.

Dale Band and Justin Harrington agreed a half with Dave Goodwin and Jack Cavell for a final score of 3.5 to 1.5.

Afterwards,  club captain Julian Ridge praised West Cornwall Golf Club for their hospitality and the presentation of their course, and thanked the players, caddies and supporters.

Tehidy Park will now play St. Austell on the weekend of January 19/20 at a venue to be announced.
