Well the 2024 Rider cup is nicely balance after day 2 of the Annual Seniors competition was completed on Tuesday, despite the rain.

Gordon Kells reports -Well in between the showers the Day 2 matches of our Seniors Rider Cup Tournament took place earlier today.

This time it was better ball match play over the front 9 ‘morning’ holes followed by 4 somes match play over the back 9 ‘afternoon’ holes.

Derbyshire started the day with a two point advantage, leading 7-5 after day 1. Today’s golf was closely contested and Notts had managed to fight back to level with just the final group’s results to come in. Sadly, for Notts, it was a double win for Derbyshire so the day ended level on 6 all and Notts still trail by 2 points going in to the final day 3 singles matches on Thursday.


Full details of today’s results are attached, as are the pairings for Thursday’s singles. If Notts can win 7 of the 12 points available, they will retain the Rider Cup. Derbyshire’s task is to secure 5.5 of those points to win it for themselves. So as usual it really is all up for grabs come Thursday!!

Good Luck, and may the best team win!!
