Ryder Cup match at West Waterford

Event organizer Jason Reynolds had his Europe and USA teams decked in their respective blue and red on the first tee at West Waterford bright and early on Saturday morning.  Kenny Kelleher was impressed as his USA team held a 7-5 lead after the morning foursomes..  The iced water was in big demand as both teams took a break before heading out in the midday heat for the afternoon singles.  Once again the USA team recorded a 7-5 victory to seal an overall 15-9 result to gain posession of the Ryder cup for 2018.  European captain Stephen Slater congratulated the winners and vowed to win back the trophy in 2019.  The beer, banter and burgers went down well afterwards as both teams relaxed at the Costa del Coolcormack.  Roll on 2019.
