GA team defeats ADF in annual match

In the annual match between the Golf Australia Men’sSenior team and the Australian Defence Forces team, Golf Australia triumphed at Tallwoods Golf Club in NSW by 13 matches to 10 matches. The ADF trailed by three matches after the day one foursomes and four-ball matches, but came out blazing on day two in the singles matches. The ADF s great start saw them lead in ten of the twelve individual matches after nine holes and an historic ADF victory looked likely. However, the GA senior team dug deep and rallied with some great play and pressure putting to eventually share the singles points – six matches each. This resulted in the GA Senior team retaining the trophy after also narrowly winning in 2009. This event has been played four times and all the matches have been played in the very best spirit while also being very keenly fought. The social side has also been a great success and lasting friendships have been made between older golfers and the younger golfers who also serve in the defence of our country. Congratulations to the Golf Australia Senior Team of Bob Angus, Les Browne, Steve Cann, Col Hallam, Geoff Everett, Pat Giles, Nigel Goodall, Richard Greville, Tony Mazzone, Dave Morrison, Russell Rogers and Roy Vandersluis.
