Cornwall Golf Union A Team Championships at West Cornwall Golf Club — Sunday, April 22

LAUNCESTON’S A team were drawn to play Truro in the first-round. There are three games played in the format of alternate shot foursomes.

With the last two matches going to one side each thanks to a win for John Harrison and Jamie Barton and a loss for Chris Turner and Peter Dennis, the place in the afternoon quarter-finals depended on Ben Wevill and his partner, Richard Jasper.

With their match going to the last hole, a stunning second shot close to the flag by Jasper was enough to grab the win.

In the afternoon against Mullion, Wevill and Jasper again secured their point and this time it fell to Peter Dennis to play a pressure shot onto the 17th green to secure Launceston’s place in the semi-final against St Austell Golf Club during the County Championship week in May.
