The Golf NSW Boys’ Team has made a solid start in the Australian Interstate Teams series with comfortable wins in their first two matches at Ulverstone Golf Club.

Joshua Gadd was impressive winning his morning match 7&6, while Jordy Garner and Jason Hong both recorded 4&3 results against their Apple Isle opponents.

The afternoon match against the ACT was a tighter affair, but wins by both Corey Jones and Jay Mackenzie by 3&2 margins, alongside Joshua Gadd who won his second match of the series, this time 1 up, settled the result.
