The match kicked off with fourball better balls over 15 holes of the High Course. Unfortunately, due to absence and illness this was modified so that in two matches one player played two of the other side. The only accommodation by common consent was that the single took two drives and played the better one from there. At luncheon the scores were level at 2-2 with everything to play for in what would now be seven afternoon singles.
The singles were played over the West Course, the last six holes of which none of us had ever seen, as in previous years matches were only played over the first twelve. By common consent it was decided to retain the format next year.
As the results began to drift in the scores looked to be closer than the Brexit referendum. Dominic Boyle, Allan Kerr and Captain Ashok Singhania all won, but it wasn't enough and as the last results came in the LMEGA had failed to regain the trophy by a single point 6-5.
