GTB Ryder Cup Success

GTB v The Golf Plaza

Lumine Golf Resort
Barcelona, Spain
September 2012

In the wonderful setting of Salou, near Barcelona sits the 45 hole complex Lumine Beach and Golf Resort.  Lumine is currently hosting the European Tour School (Nov 2012) and proved to be a great test for us all.

Over 54 holes my team challenged a team from The Golf Plaza to a Ryder Cup style team event.

Introducing my Team Bragg!

Lee and Jason Prentice
Dev Patel
Fraser Robertson
Jason Grech

The format for the event was 2 days of 4Ball Betterball and then the final day being a straight singles matchplay.  Each game was worth a point and a 1/2 point for a draw.

In warm temperatures and glorious sunshine we set about claiming the trophy for our respective teams!

As with the excitement of the recent Ryder Cup in Medinah our games literally went down to the last singles game on the last day and on the last green for the cup to be won.  Jason Prentice secured his point on the last hole after his wedge shot slammed into the pin (hole shown below) and he safely two putted.

18th Green, Hill Course

Big thanks to all my team for joining me in Spain, I really enjoyed sharing the break with you and found the time working on your games hugely beneficial.

Also a big thanks to Jon who together helped to put together the trip and also a great team, we look forward to defending our title next year!

2013 Venue to be confirmed, but Team GTB will be ready!! :)
