A round of applause to the Glasgow team who retained the trophy for the ‘West’. The match got off to the worst start possible with a ‘tanking’ in the morning fourballs. After some soul searching and a bit of name-calling at lunch, the troops were ready to take on the might of the ‘East’. In a comeback to surpass ‘The miracle of Medinah’, the ‘West played a blinder in the afternoon winning almost all the singles ties and somehow making a clean getaway with the trophy.
Thanks to Edinburgh for a great match, and Duncan for organising such a successful event.
The match is now fixed in the calendar as the last Tuesday in August each year, and will continue to take place at Glen Bervie GC.
