Rory and Colin keep locals in the B&D

Last Thursday Banbridge travelled to Balmoral Golf Club in Belfast to play their first leg of the second round match.

Balmoral have produced more Ryder Cup players that any other club - Fred Daly, Norman Drew, Eddie Polland and David Feherety all representated Balmoral Golf Club over the years.

Not only did they produce these four fantastic players for the Ryder Cup but they had five players who beat their Banbridge oppolents last Thursday night in the B&D.

Wins for Rory Leonard and Colin Wilton mean that Banbridge still hope to progress to the third round when Balmoral make the reurn visit.
