2008, OWs vs School
4 July 2008
On a beautiful July evening, OWs played the second annual golf match against a specially chosen school six.
With both teams eager to get their names on the new silver claret jug, 18 holes of four-ball better ball match play had to be decided for three pairs. And with all matches played under new full handicap allowances, a strong OW team found that, thankfully, they were not giving away too many shots - a testament to the strength of the school team.
OWs Richard Tidman and James Yearsley were in conquering form, putting the OWs into a 1-0 lead. An in form Geoff Tedstone and OW captain finally achieved parity on the 17th green. Matthew Leefe and Andy Haslam, with an eagle 3 from Andy at the last, ensured the trophy went to a thankful OW six.
Well done to the school and to all the players. The OWs are looking forward to a similarly close encounter in 2009.
