Wooden spoon woe for Scots in Men's

Home Internationals at Moortown

Without the services of their two highest world ranked players, Connor Syme and Robert McIntyre - both playing in US amateur championship, Scotland finished a poor last of four in the Men's Home Internationals table at Moortown Golf Club, Leeds.
Their 9.5-5.5 defeat by Wales followed the pattern of earlier defeats by England (9-6) and Ireland (10-5).
The abysmal morning performances in the foursomes continued. The Scots did not win one alternate-shot tie against the Welsh but halved three to trail 3.5-1.5 at lunchtime.
Wales quickly clinched overall victory by winning the top three singles and they finished 6-4 ahead in the afternoon.
Ireland retained the championship by the narrowest of margins after drawing 7.5-7.5 with England in the title decider. The Irish games won column was 0.5pt better than the English.
