After the delicious carvery lunch provided by Kings Hill Golf Club teams Kent and Dorset were ready for the afternoon singles matches, off to a competitive start in an extremely close game between Oliver Daws and Dorset’s David Cook finishing on the 18thGreen with David Cook winning by just one hole. Joshua Bristow claiming a 5 and 3 win over Dorset’s Andy Rideout meant that the teams were tied 4-4. Superb golf from Dorset’s Luke Hurst and Harry Mitchell put Dorset 6-4 ahead with 3 games left. A fantastic 6 and 5 win from Danny Jones and a 3 and 2 win from Connor Byers put the score at 6-5 with 1 game left to play but Dorset’s Giles Legg closed out the final game to a half against George Crow leaving the overall match at Kent 5.5 and Dorset 6.5.
