The Final of the 2015 Touchwood Cup, the winter pairs match play, was contested between Graham Ashcroft & Jason West and Dean Cornelius & Kim Ward. Graham Ashcroft reported 'It was a great match and we got off to a good start and went 1 up on the first hole. We halved the 2nd then won the 3rd to go 2 up. We halved the fourth with birdies then lost the 5th. We won the 6th to go 2 up, won the 7th with a birdie to go 3 up, halved the 8th and won the 9th to go 4 up . At this point we were only 1 over gross for 9 holes! We won the 10th and 11th to go 6 up and were still just 1 over par. Dean and Kim fought back and we lost the 12th, 13th, 14th to reduce our advantage to 3 up. Dean and Kim then made a great 5 on the 15th, with a 15 foot putt from Dean, however we holed the 5 foot putt for the par and win for a 4&3 victory'.
