Ronnd 2: Baltinglass 3- Tulfarris 2
Round 1 Tulfarris H) defeated Slade Valley. 3.5-1.5
The club recorded a very good win last Sunday against a formidable Slade Valley team, who had high hopes playing against us. In their ranks, and playing in Tulfarris was a former assistant professional golfer , who played in the US. Unfortunately for John Curley and Gavin Buckley they met with this pairing and Slade recorded their only win on the day. Their other half point was a match in which they were dormie 2 down- in effect a win for Tulfarris . This win for Tulfarris was exceptional in that the players Captain Shemus Dore and Niall Robinson, were only drafted into the team late on Sat due to an injury to a team player, which resulted in this partnership unable to play. The other match at home was Stephen Cullen and Lenny Murphy who also recorded a good win on the day.
In recording our win, we took 2 wins away from home, which in itself is remarkable, but when you have a pairing, that had not played together in Slade, it makes it even more remarkable, and not least that the junior member Sean O’ Rourke was unphased by the task, winning their match on the 17th 2 up. Well done to John Field & Sean. Conor Fallon and Fergal Quinn also finished their match 2up, on 18 –helped by a glorious chip in from approx 30 yards on 17th, witnessed by my good self.
So many thanks to all the lads, and to John Field who had to make the late calls on Sat
