The Eisenhower Cup, trophy of the St. Andrews world amateur golf team championship, is presented?
The Eisenhower Cup, trophy of the St. Andrews world amateur golf team championship, is presented to the winners, Australia, October 13.
Presentation followed a play off between Australia and America - previous Saturday's play had finished with a tie at 918 points. Australia won the play off with a three-aggregate of 222 against 224.
The result of this 18-hole play-off is a tremendous victory for the Australian team who fought back to tie with the Americans after being 11 strokes down in the earlier stages of the tournament last week.
The Australian team was skippered by Bob Stevens and included Peter Toogood, Doug Bachli (a former British Champion), and Bruce Devlin.
Toogood showed the fighting capabilities of the Australian team when, after three-putting the fourth for a six, he strode round the rest of this difficult course in two under fours for a 75.
Following him, Devlin - the apprentice plumber - also overcame a three-putt six at the fifth to finish the course with a 72.
