I'd like to thank Matt and Robert, plus their vice Captains for organising this tourney. I've always enjoyed team events. I know this probably didn't run as smoothly as was anticipated but it was fun nevertheless.
And another epic match concludes. Taylor and Fairhurst share the point in a real birdie shoot out. Taylor birdies 17 and 18 to get the match back to All Square. Europe is really happy with the half point from the captains pick and Ryder Cup rookie here, Fairhurst pulled out his best play of the week in the singles. Solid performance!
1.5 to go!

Allen and Smith seals it and brings the cup home for Team Europe!
Allen rallied late and his flurry of birdies on the back nine was too much for Curtis Cockerill. A comfortable 3&2 win in the end.
Smith got of to a flying start, but lost his swing as the pressure mounted. But Milbert never managed to recover from those early holes and when he failed to birdie the 17th it was all over.
Not finding the words to describe the effort and heart shown by my team right now, but somehow we found the inches we needed to get enough putts to drop. A fantastic tournament where our opponents put up a stern defense of the cup, but we prevailed.
