The annual triangular match was this year hosted by South Staffordshire Golf Club. South Staffs is a fantastic test of golf, especially when their already very sloppy greens are running at 12.4 on the stimp.
Once again the team was very much the same as the week before, so we could stick with our successful foursomes pairings that we used against Gloucestershire and Derbyshire. Worcestershire boys had a brilliant start to the day and at lunch lead the foursomes both in the Triangular match and the individual league matches. The most notable win was a six and four victory by George Westwood (Stourbridge Golf Club) and Patrick Leydon (Kings Norton Golf Club).
The singles however were looking a little tougher than the foursomes, but with half the afternoon games in the Worcestershire Boys had won just under fifty percent of the points available, so held onto a slender lead overall. Ted Pickering ( Worcester G&CC) and Rhys Hopkins (Redditch Golf Club) remained unbeaten on the day, but unfortunately as the results came in we came up just short of the points needed to lift the trophy.
So a nine all draw with Staffordshire and narrow ten to eight loss to Shropshire and Herefordshire gave us a third place finish in the league. This is a little frustrating as we were so close to winning the league, but we must take the positives and build on our good performances for next season.
I'd firstly like to congratulate Shropshire and Herefordshire for winning the Triangular Match and the league. Also a big thank you to Roger Martin for his support throughout the day and South Staffordshire Golf Club for their hospitality.
