The rivalry between the European and USA team for the 2015 Burstwick Cup was one of the most fierce we have seen, and the banter began well before a ball was teed up, with Facebook and Twitter awash with jibes and jokes about who might come out victorious.
Team captain's Andy Wilson and Alan Mackinnon were raring to go on Saturday, and their intentions were made obvious with chants and barracking on the first tee, with the teams joining in the camaraderie!
Conditions were a little blowy on the Saturday but fortunate the rain had been and gone during the night, and although it was a cool start the weather warmed up nicely in from mid-morning onwards.
The scores at the end of the first day fourballs were 4.5 to 3.5 in favour of Europe, with it all to play for in the final day singles matches.
Sunday morning arrived and the weather was absolutely stunning; a still and warm summers morning meant that the course was going to be very scoreable and play for some great golf in the singles.
