Congratulations to the Ely Goddard Cup team (Luke Ryan, Terry Ryan, Chris Nixon, Dale Isaacson, Shane Hornsey, Ross Wilson, Josh Bailey and Ashley Sizer) who beat Gog Magog in the final played at Saffron Walden Golf Club last Sunday. In the morning foursomes Ely lead 3-1 after winning 3 of the 4 matches. In the afternoon singles the Gogs came back strong and managed to win 4 matches and get halves in two other leaving the overall score tied at 6-6. This meant a sudden death playoff would take place; Team Captain Luke Ryan nominated himself to play for Ely while +3 handicapper Steve Jarvis was the Gogs choice.
At the first playoff hole Luke had to hole a six foot putt for par to keep Ely in the tie and this gave him great momentum going to the next. Both players had putts for par which Steve Jarvis just missing from 7 feet which left Luke the chance to roll in another 6 foot putt for the win, which he did to crown Ey Goddard Cup winners for 2015.
All of the matches were played in excellent spirit with every member of the team contributing at least ½ a point to the team total. Well done to everyone who has represented Ely during all the knockout rounds of the Goddard Cup and to the guys who played in the final.
