A thrilling match took place at Haywards Heath Golf Club on Wednesday 6th August
with a team of County Boys against the JCMW squad of girls. The morning foursomes started in the gloomy, damp weather, but the girls triumphed in this format and won the morning session 3-2. The pairings in this format now look settled and players were well matched.
The afternoon session saw the sunshine and some very bright skills from all players. Eagles and birdies were scored all round the course, players winning matches 4 under par and halving matches 5 under par! Four of the matches were decided on the 18th green. The match was finely balanced at 7 points each and came down to the last putt from the last pair on the 18th green, being sunk by Jamie Dart to give the boys the narrowest of victories!
All matches were played in a really good competitive spirit and respect for good play was gained by all players. Very many thanks to Haywards Heath Golf club for hosting the event and presenting a lovely course in great condition.
