Eisenhower round up


Laurie Canter

Laurie Canter

On a day that separated the men from the boys England failed to capitalise on the somewhat British weather. Strong winds made the conditions very challenging and with a couple of shots lost in the wind early on the day became an uphill struggle for the England team of Laurie Canter, Tom Lewis and Eddie Pepperell. The two former managed to steady their ships and when signing the cards Laurie had shot +5 and Tom +3. Eddie fought his best in the wind but his +8 was discarded.


On the leaderboard teams were moving up and down rapidly. France continued their impressive strike all the way through and will now leave Buenos Aires as holders of the impressive Eisenhower Trophy. I said already after our match against France in May that they will be a country to look out for in the future as they have a very well co-ordinated programme with good people involved. Those things seem to pay off even quicker than I thought.

Big movers today were otherwise Scotland who played the last two days with only two players to finish 5th. Ireland, who played nine holes last night and the other nine early this morning, managed -1 in the final round which brought them to 6th place. Also Belgium who like Ireland played their final round over two days and tied with England made great progress in the final round.
