On Sunday 14 September, the College Golf team
travelled to Radley College to play in the inaugural Ryder Cup type event named
the Morgan Cup, after Richard Morgan the former Headmaster of both schools.
day followed the pattern of the Ryder Cup but over 9 holes, starting with the
Fourballs in the morning. College managed to secure a one-point advantage going
into lunch, thanks to two exciting wins on the 9th green. After a lovely
lunch, College went on to win the Foursomes 3 - 1 giving them a 3 point
advantage going into the singles. In the singles, there were a number of
tightly contested matches, with Radley winning the singles 4 1/2 to 3 1/2.
However, this meant that Cheltenham College won the overall match 9 - 7.
It was a fantastic day out in a wonderful setting and beautiful weather.
The players on both sides felt that the event would be eagerly
anticipated in the years to come. It was an honour to have Richard Morgan at
the event to present the trophy to the winning Captain and say a few words.
