OWGS v Huntercombe – Match Report…
A beautiful spring morning saw OWGS get off to a flying start in the morning with steady golf from Nyren Scott-Malden and Andrew Brownrigg. They were followed in by the canny senior pairing of Val Powell and Christopher Cornell. Huntercombe fought back to gain a point against Parkinson and Cruikshank, whereupon the fourth match came to an end with Simon Chantrey holing a birdie putt to win the match.
After the usual convivial lunch several OWs felt that they had done enough so Giles Payne (Furley’s) was borrowed from Huntercombe and his point in the afternoon singles was sufficient to secure the win for OWGS.
