'All to play for' in Second Leg of Uden Cup Final

(21 Aug 2012)

It's 'all to play for' in the second leg of the Uden Cup final against Corrstown at home next Sunday after Malahide secured 2.5 points in the away leg yesterday. After Mick Gaffney and John Muldowney won their match 2&1 to follow Paul Monahan and Philip Ellis's earlier win, 5-2 looked like the probable result as Pat Caulfield and Stephen Hunt were 4 down at the turn. However by the time they got to the 14th tee they had clawed their way back to 2 down. The best of Pat was to come as he single-putted the next 3 greens for a birdie 2 at the 14th from 8 feet, a par 4 at the tough 15th from 10 feet and again from 15 feet for a par on the 16th when it looked like the hole would be lost. After losing the par 3 17th, Stephen pulled off a superb shot from the right hand rough on the 18th hitting a 5 iron over the water into 15 feet and duly two-putted to secure a halved match which could prove vital by the time the tie concludes.However at 4.5 to 2.5 down we still face an uphill challenge so please come out in numbers on Sunday to support the team in their final push for glory.
