Continent of Europe hammer GB and I boys

at Ballybunion to keep Jacques Leglise Trophy

The Continent of Europe chalked up their biggest winning margin since 2010 in the Under-18 boys' international tournament when they beat Great Britain and Ireland 15.5-9.5 to retain the Jacques Leglise Trophy at Ballybunion Golf Club, Ireland today.

GB and I started the second day, trailing only by 1pt (6.5-5.5) and were still in with a winning chance it seemed when the Day 2 foursomes were shared 2-2.
But the Continentals outclassed the GB and I boys in the singles, winning seven and losing only two.
Darren Howie (Peebles), pictured by Graeme Webster,  the only Scot in the GB and I team, was undefeated on the first day, but lost both his foursomes and his singles ties today.


Graeme Webster sees how his Ballybunion

improvements have worked out

Among the spectators at Ballybunion is Oldmeldrum's golf course designer, Graeme Webster who was called in to sharpen up the Irish course last year with the Jacques Leglise Trophy match in mind. 

Webster was the man who designed the Paul Lawrie Golf Centre Ardoe Par-3 course which has come in for widespread praise from all the competitors, professionals and amateurs, males and females, at the recent AAM Scottish Par-3 championship.
Webster's Team Niblick also designed the practice facilities at Meldrum House, not to mention the golf course itself.
If you want your course "improved," then Graeme Webster's your man.
