EUROPEAN MENS TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS - Scotland book semi final place with win over Spain

Scotland booked their place in the semi finals of the European Mens team Championship at halmstad GC in Sweden on Thursday, 9th July, beating third place qualifiers Spain in their quarter final match.

Scotland won both foursomes matches in the morning, and despite Jack McDonald (Kilmarnock Barassie) losing by 4 & 3 in the anchor tie against Pep Angles and Greig Marchbanks losing his tie on the final green, a single hole win by Grant Forrest and a win at the second extra hole from Ewan Ferguson, combined with a half match from Connor Syme, gave Scotland a 4.5 - 2.5 victory.
