The management team retained the Ryder Cup at Tydd St Giles.

It wasn’t looking good after the first session against the captain’s team.

Despite big wins for Andy Betts & James Horscroft and Dan Newell & Ian Edrupt (both 4&3), they trailed 5-3 in the pairs foursomes matchplay format.

John Nobbs & Luke Stanford (1up), Lenk Gostic & Jimmy Woods (2up) and Keith Jakings & Tim Buckenham (1up) all won for the captain’s team – giving them a slight edge going into the afternoon singles.

The management team upped their game, winning the session 11-6.

There were some big wins for Lee Smith (5&4), Andy Betts (4&3), Tim Hines (4&3) and Paul Brown (7&5) on the management team and Jimmy Woods (5&3), Tim Buckenham (5&4) and Luke Stanford (7&5) for the captain’s team.

Most of the tighter games went in the management’s favour and led to them retaining the trophy 14-11.

Edrupt, Stanford, Woods, Betts, Jakings and Buckenham won both of their games during the day.

All games were played in a very competitive, yet friendly, manner and it was a great advert for getting involved in the club’s competitions.
