GTB Ryder Cup Penina a Great Success

We have just got back from a great 4 days in Penina, Algarve, Portugal where 16 of us set out to battle it out for the inaugural Ryder Cup competition.
Adrian and I with the GTB Ryder Cup
The Competitors!
Team Cafaro
Team Bragg

Team Bragg
Matt Glavin, Nick Oke, Nick Sedgwick, Neil Gathani, Andy Johnson, Robbie Johnson and Cliff Gardiner

Team Cafaro
Greg Soffe, Pravin Patel, Sanjay Ahya, Upen Shah, Piyush Patel, Paresh Mehta and  Nick Maugham (sadly couldnt attend the trip last minute)

Despite some showers and 20-30mph winds the golf course was in great shape and the golf that was played matched it.

Adrian and I lead the teams out on the last day singles with Team Bragg 5-0 up, but with double points available on all singles matches all was to play for! 

Adrian and I had a great battle with 10 birdies and only one bogey between us I just managed to pip him to the post on the 17th 2&1, I shot a pleasing 68 (-5) and Adrian shot 69 (-4).

With all the matches back in the clubhouse we tallied up the scores and Team Bragg managed to finish in front and claim the cup, we are all very much looking forward to next year where we can defend the title and take on the challenge of Team Cafaro.
The winning team, Team Bragg

Here are some other pics of the event:

A big thanks to all that took part in the event, we loved hosting the competition and it was a delight to see so many smiling faces.

See you next year for the rematch!
