England regain Euro crown, but Scots make it a nail-biter

first_img England’s men are the kings of Europe once again. Having lost the title in 2011, they regained the crown by beating Scotland 4½ – 2½ in the final at Silkeborg Ry Golfklub in Jutland, Denmark. The foundation was built in the morning when England won both foursomes thanks to Neil Raymond and Amateur champion Garrick Porteous, who beat James Ross and Ewan Scott 4 and 2, while Max Orrin and Nathan Kimsey overcame Graeme Robertson and Jack McDonald by the same margin. But the singles proved a nail-biting affair. Robertson gained the Scots first point with a 1 hole win over Callum Shinkwin only for Porteous to restore England’s advantage with a 3 and 2 success over McDonald. When Bradley Neil got home by 2 holes over Toby Tree then score was 3-2. It was left to Orrin to see England to the necessary fourth point but he had to bounce back from trailing to Scott Borrowman to force extra holes and won it on the 19th. The other game between Scott and Kimsey was halved by mutual agreement as England was already assured of the title. “It was a great performance,” said England Performance Director Nigel Edwards. “The lads stuck to the task when Scotland put us under pressure. Some great play coming down the closing holes. “The morning foursomes were crucial it gave us the edge. Hats off to Scotland who played a truly great match and were true sportsmen of the highest order. That was a great final and it was a huge relief to win. “The whole team played their part in the victory, contributing in so many ways. The players really appreciate all the support from England Golf, from the Board, the staff and everyone else involved. “Graham Walker and Terry Casey galvanised a real team effort, not just this week but over the last few years.” In the third place match, France beat the Netherlands 5-2. 13 Jul 2013 England regain Euro crown, but Scots make it a nail-biter last_img read more
