England win International Match

England won the friendly international match against Spain at La Reserva Golf Club having captured another 6.5 points today against Spain’s 5.5. With the 7-5 from yesterday England finshed on 13.5 to Spain’s 10.5. The only player to win all his four points was last year’s Lytham Trophy’s champion, Matt Haines. Also Charlie Ford went through the weekend undefeated capturing 3.5 points for England.

England Captain Colin Edwards who made his debut in the role at La Reserva commented:

“I am extremely proud to get a win in Spain and captaining my country for the first time was an awesome experience. Roll on Conway!” (n.b Conway is where the European Team Championships are held this year).

It was a difficult day in the wind at La Reserva and England Coach, David Ridley said after the match:

“The old knockdown shot we need to learn! Christy O’Connor in his hay day would have shown us how to play these shots.”
