England end Irish winning streak

ENGLAND ended Ireland’s four-year reign as Men’s Home Internationals champions by reclaiming the title

ENGLAND ended Ireland’s four-year reign as Men’s Home Internationals champions by reclaiming the title in excellent fashion. The team triumphed at Conwy Golf Club in Wales, overcoming Ireland 8.5-6.5 in the title decider. The result was particularly sweet after last year when Ireland beat England by half a game point to retain their title. Team captain Gareth Jenkins said: “This is fantastic. We’ve been so close over the last few years that to finally have the chance and to win is great. The team had an amazing fighting spirit and played some outstanding golf this week.” England, who last won the championship in 2013, opened their campaign with an 11.5-3.5 win over hosts, Wales, before edging to an 8-7 victory over Scotland. Ireland, meanwhile, had also beaten Scotland and Wales in their first two games to set-up a final day decider. The morning foursomes finished two-and-a-half points apiece but England edged the afternoon singles session 6-4 to take home the title.
