Trentham’s Gian-Marco Petrozzi helps England notch up 30th victory over France
England kept up their impressive record against France with a 13-7 win in the latest international at Vidauban Golf Club, near Nice.
This was England’s 30th victory since the biennial match was first played in 1934. In that time, the French have won just five times, most recently in 2010 in Chantilly.
Play was tight on the first day, when the opening foursomes were shared and England managed to edge just one point ahead after the singles.
But, the second day’s play was reduced to one session of singles because of the threat of torrential rain and storms – and England wasted no time in racing ahead.
The team won 6.5 of the eight points on offer to underline their superiority in this event. Ben Jones and David Hague were the top scorers, both with a perfect record of three wins from three games. Matthew Jordan, Todd Clements and Gian-Marco Petrozzi all had two wins.
