Morgan Cup

Morgan Cup

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. 

The 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.
