1st Team v Derbyshire 6th July at Stourbridge Golf Club
The team assembled nice and early at Stourbridge Golf Club on Sunday morning for the match against Derbyshire. After a hearty breakfast the 5 foursomes matches set off at 10.00 am. Some excellent early play saw Worcestershire in a strong position after 9 holes, but Derbyshire fought back and the lunch time score was 2 1/2 v 2 1/2.
Tony Hill had selected a very strong team and was confident that the players would come good in the singles and this proved to be correct. Worcestershire won 5 out of the first 6 singles matches and eventually won the singles 7 v 3 meaning the overall result was 9 1/2 v 5 1/2. On very true greens some of the scoring was exceptional, with Josh carpenter having two eagles in his first 5 holes and being 7 under par when his match ended.
The County would like to thank Stourbridge Golf Club for hosting this event for us. The course was in excellent condition and the food from the new caterer was superb.
Tony would also like to pass on his thanks to Denis Hayes and Dave McDermott for their support.
