Renfrewshire boys defeat Glasgow

Renfrewshire boys golf team beat the team from Glasgow Golf Union at Haggs Castle Golf Club on Sunday, June 23 by 5 matches to 3.
This continues the good start they had to this season when they defeated Dunbartonshire 8 - 0 in May at Ranfurly Castle G.C.
The course was in good condition, but comments from all of the boys said that the greens were slow and inconsistent at times, but this was a reflection on the variable early season weather
The Renfrewshire team showed a number of changes from the previous match, with some players unavailable while others were available.
Drew Cleaver set the team off to a good start when in a very tight game he eventually won on the last hole against a very stubborn opponent, maintaining his 100% record.
Ewan Urquhart was always behind and 3 down with 4 to play won the next 3 holes only to run out of steam and went down by 2 holes.
Mac Holmes, never down until the 16th lost 2/1thanks to great golf by his opponent over the next 2 holes.
John Jack was a comfortably winner against an opponent not at this level, but a prospect for the future.
Harry Kellock always seemed to be in charge of his game, but every time won a hole, he lost the next but eventually closed out the game at the 17th.
Johnny Greig got of to a poor start but came good, then found himself 3 down with 3 to play and despite a valiant effort on 18 failed to repeat his great escape on the previous game and lost at the last.
In the final 2 games, Cameron Percy and Roddy McAuley who last week contested the final of the RGU Boys Match Play Championship were always in control of their matches despite a slight wobble by Cameron over the closing holes, but both ran out winners in the end

The match, as always, was again played in a very sporting manner
