Dalhousie GC produced an outstanding performance at Downfield to defeat a perennially strong home team by four points to two. There were a number of good performances, but perhaps the most outstanding was the father and son partnership of Barry and Michael Stewart, who came back from 4 down at the turn to win at the last. Dalhousie having won the home fixture by 4 and 2, this meant that they won the Paton Trophy by 8 to 4.
The visiting golfers from Scotscraig were warmly welcomed back (in every sense of the word!) to the Championship Course as Dalhousie hosted another strong team from Tayport. The Fife side proved to be too good once more, running out winners by five matches to one (Dalhousie’s solitary point gained in two halved matches.)
The first of these featured young Michael Stewart, making his debut in inter-club fixtures alongside Ian Wilson, whose wide experience and words of advice were clearly of great assistance. John MacDougall and Tom Wotherspoon earned the other half point with a very solid performance as the darkness descended on the last hole. (The ridiculous delays experienced – at one point there were TWELVE golfers on the sixteenth tee as the last of four American visiting groups were not concerned in the slightest at the mayhem they had created by disgraceful slow play – forced the tighter matches to be slowed to a virtual crawl as daylight was lost). Fortunately, another first class meal in the Golf Hotel put smiles back on faces as the obvious enjoyment of the two clubs in each other’s company was reinforced. Hopes are not dulled that “revenge in Tayport” might still be on the cards for Dalhousie in July!
fair to say that Dalhousie’s performance was (in most of the six four-balls)
considerably better than that in 2017.
The new Edzell layout from the back tees
is really testing, but – on a lovely north Angus evening - we pushed the hosts
all the way in at least four matches.
Significantly, they still managed to
record a convincing victory at the end of the day. The return match in a couple
of weeks at Carnoustie, however, will be a different experience for the Edzell
squad…..so the destiny of the Willock Bowl is FAR from being cut and dried.
Dalhousie eagerly looks forward to sweet revenge!
