Ireland declared Senior Men’s Home International winners

Ireland

Ireland have been declared the winners of the 2015 Senior Men’s Home Internationals following an appeal against the original result. The championship was held at Crowborough Beacon Golf Club, Sussex, in September.

Three countries tied on match points at the conclusion of the event and, after consideration, the trophy was awarded to Scotland.

However the Golfing Union of Ireland appealed against the decision and the England Golf Championship Committee concluded that the tie-breaker had been incorrectly applied, that the team from the Golfing Union of Ireland were the rightful winners of the championship and the records should be amended accordingly.
