Competition England v Rest of the World
Despite the early threat of showers, we all stayed dry. We had a very strong wind to thank for blowing the rain away. This caused some havoc on the golf course and resulted in a few broken glasses and bottles on the terrace.
Two teams of 24 players representing England and the Rest of The World competed in 12 Pairs Better Ball matches. Every match and every hole counted. The Rest of The World won 73 holes, beating England’s total of 72 holes. If you were representing the Rest of The World team and got totally spanked – that one hole you won made all the difference!
Take a bow Norman Morgan, Irene Langley, Anne Busch, Mick Drummond, Joe Lawlor, Pete Constable, Jean O’Connor, Walt Ireland, Jim Niblo, Juan Hebblethwaite, Jose McQuilter, Bill Donald, Paul Rawlings, John Murray, Debbie Murray, Alistair Rae, Veronica Porter, Colin Reid, Ian Butters, Pedro Evans, Alison Vasey, Henrietta Reckweg and Maura Parsons.
