England vs Spain, day 1

Halfway through the friendly international match between England and Spain at La Reserva Golf Club in Sotogrande, Spain, England has taken the lead 7-5 going into Sunday’s final 36 holes. It was a day when a cool breeze kept the windcheaters on and one could say that the state of some of the matches varied with the wind. Having made the 9 hole turn in the morning foursomes up in all four matches England allowed the Spanish team to come back and take one of the points as the team of Hutsby/Whitnell lost their match. Both Hutsby and Whitnell came back strong in the afternoon singles though with comfortable wins early to try and lead their fellow teammates. With Haines and Ford following in their footsteps and the other four matches turning to Spain the afternoon was tied in a half. Charlie Ford and Matt Haines both captured two points by winning their respective two matches. For full results of day one click here.
