The 29th September brought warm temperatures and sunshine to the Selby Golf Club the venue for the 19th annual match between West Yorkshire and The North and East Province.
The team consisting of David Fisher, Jim Gray, Alan Pendleton, Alex Steele, Barrie Fothergill, Jim Stanley, Alan Gilby, Mike Mercer, Neil Davies, Brian Short, David Wadley and Ian Gow were in excellent form but so was the North and East, and after 4 matches it was all square.
The tension was mounting so Rt W Bro Philip Birch ordered the Gin and tonics to calm the nerves of our PGM he need not have worried as the last two were won in fine style the result being 4 matches to 2.
We now lead 13 matches to 7 in the annual battle for the beautiful ‘Ridings Mark Challenge Cup’ originally jointly presented by Rt W Bro Bram Morley and Rt W Bro George Cooper in 1993.
Thanks must go to David Fisher and Selby Golf Club for a course in excellent condition and well organised and superb food, also thanks to Bob Corfield for organising the weather!
All in all a great and successful day for West Yorkshire Golf, the team is normally selected from those who play in our own Golf Day held at Styrrup Golf club in May, so please come along on May 4th 2012 and perhaps you could be selected for the team.W Bro Bob Corfield PGJD PAPGM
