The way they were: Recalling 1959 Youth

International at Pannal

Result: England 6, Scotland 12

The scoring format for the 1959 Youth International at Pannal Golf Club, Yorkshire changed from the "holes up" aggregate method used in previous years to the standard match-play results we would recognise today.
The Scots gained revenge for their defeat at Dumfries and County GC in 1958 with a brilliant display in the singles which they took by a 9.5 to 2.5 margin, wiping out England's 3.5 to 2.5 from the foursomes.

Gordon Cosh (Cowglen), pictured left in the 1960s, setting out on a excellent amateur career, was a winner in the morning and again in the afternoon.
John Young (Cathcart Castle), who would win the Scottish men's amateur title at Carnoustie in 1960, was also a double winner at Pannal.
