England battle back to clinch tie with Wales

first_img England demonstrated their fighting qualities to secure a tie with hosts Wales on the opening day of the Home Internationals at Southerndown. After the morning foursomes were shared equally, Wales looked to have taken command in the singles and seemed to be heading for victory. But the England tail wagged to ensure a first day defeat was avoided. Double European Amateur champion Ashley Chesters boosted England with a 3 and 2 victory over David Boote which helped erase the setback of Ryan Evans losing to Mike Hearne by one hole. However, the Welsh took a grip with Evan Griffith and Ben Westgate recorded 2 and 1 wins over Ben Stow and Seb Crookall-Nixon respectively. New cap Dan Wasteney kept England in the hunt by beating Matthew Moseley by one hole while fellow debutant Tomasz Anderson recorded England’s biggest success with a 5 and 3 margin over Richard James. Still Wales looked to have the upper hand as Lee Jones overcame Paul Kinnear 2 and 1 while Zach Galliford beat Harry Casey 3 and 1. It was left to new English champion Nick Marsh to close the gap with a 2 and 1 win over Owen Edwards while Adam Chapman’s one hole victory over Jack Bush ensured the spoils were shared. More details and scores can be found on the Golf Union of Wales website.
