No luck required as Irish win fourth ‘Homes’

IRELAND won the Men’s Home internationals for an historic fourth year in a row as they snatched victory over England by just a half game point.

Ireland won the Men’s Home internationals for an historic fourth year in a row as they snatched victory over England by just a half game point.

The teams had each won their earlier two matches against Scotland and Wales and met in a title showdown on the final day at Moortown.

After 36 holes of ups and downs and drama, they halved their match with 7.5 points apiece. However, over the three days, Ireland had won 26.5 games to England’s 26 - and, once again, the Raymond Trophy travelled home with them. “It’s historic, an amateur record,” captain Tony Goode said. “The boys at the front led as I expect them to and the boys at the back did exceptionally well. It was an absolutely great performance.”

There was disappointment for England again as they lost last year on the last putt on the last green. Wales beat Scotland 9.5 – 5.5, consigning the Scots to the wooden spoon.
