Worcestershire Boys v Gwent Boys - Newport GC on Sunday 12th April 2015

Yet another warm welcome from Graham Harris and the Gwent Boys team at Newport Golf Club.

What a change in the weather conditions from earlier in the week, with warm sunshine at Trentham, today was very cold with extremely strong winds for much of the day.

Sadly the results did not change, blown away in the foursomes 5 - 0 with three new pairings not helping the balance of the team.

At lunch, we spoke of the importance of finding fairways and greens, not losing holes to par and not losing holes in a row, plus of course not letting our opponents play out of turn. Sadly for many of our boys these basics were forgotten in the extremely testing conditions.

All of the lads tried hard, one or two probably too hard. A whitewash was on the cards with the first thirteen rubbers going Gwent's way. Unluckily for them we stole the final two rubbers of the day with nice wins for Callum Green and Chris Crisp.
