We have decided to publish the historical records we have with regard to matches against other Counties.
Some of these records go back over 50 years, but…
…some records are missing. If you have any information which would help us to complete the missing information, please contact the Secretary of Somerset Golf Captains at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our intention is to fill all the gaps and keep these records up to date from now on.
We are particularly grateful to Rob Ford (and Sandra) who spent a significant amount of time retrieving old records from an old laptop . Unfortunately, as you will see, there were still a few gaps to be filled, especially in recent years. We have tried to fill these gaps, wherever we can, during this season, often using the list of winners engraved on the respective trophies.
Headlines from this initial analysis:
- We have records since 1967 of 467 matches
- Of these, we have won 183 (39%), lost 214 (46%) and halved 68 (15%)
- Our oldest fixtures is Devon with 53 matches.
- Our greatest success is against the SGU with against 11/21 wins (52%).
- Our least success is against 0/3 against Hereford & Shropshire (0%)
- We only have two results from 1968 ; and four from 1975; winning each match to give 100% record.
- The 2019 results (with 9/16 or 56% wins) were possibly the best results since 2014 when we won 10/17(57%). Not bad in an “away” season.
- We had no recorded wins in 1992, but 6 losses (0%)
