-report from exhausted Referee — Les Wallace

The first weekend of the 2022 Pennants season saw a classis arm tussle taking 6 hours in perfect golfing conditions at Yowani Country Club, between Royal Canberra and defending Cup holder Federal.  The two teams had each finished at the top of the table in their respective pool in A Grade Division 2.

The Federal team outlasted Royal Canberra after Royal Canberra had fought back from 3-1 down at one stage to tie the contest at 3-3 after Anthony Papworth prevailed over Will Brearley at their 4th playoff hole.

With the honours even, Federal’s Ryan Murray then tied the next two playoff holes before holding off Todd Donaldson of Royal at the picturesque 7th hole to retain the historic Spalding Cup for Federal.

Team captains Don Jordan of Royal and Rory Ardlie of Federal complimented their teams on the spirit and rivalry of the contest.
