England in the final!

After a heroic come back the England Team is in the final of the 2009 European Championships at Conwy, Wales. Having been down, 2-0, after this morning’s foursomes England had to get at least four points out of this afternoon’s singles. Matt Haines, Sam Hutsby and Tommy Fleetwood delivered their points in style and it now came down to Dale Whitnell and Luke Goddard. After Dale Whitnell had lost on the 18th green to Norwegian Anders Kristiansson, Luke Goddard was put to the test. On the 2nd sudden death hole the Norwegian found trouble over the green of the difficult par 3 and even though he hit a great shot out of there he found his ball rolling over the green. A chip and a missed putt later Luke did not even need to hole his par putt and the match was over.

Watch Luke Goddard comment on today’s performance:

Some would say that tomorrow’s final is a dream final; England vs Scotland. Follow the final on the live scoring available here.
