Men's Interstate Final.
Friday 1st May 2015
QLD has finished runner up today's 5/3 loss. Taylor MacDonald was defeated 5/3 by Ryan Ruffles who has become somewhat of a nemesis for Redcliffe players over the last month.
T Mac has faced the best amateurs in the country as QLD's number one and should be proud of his efforts.
It has been exciting to follow the progress of our top tier players.
Interstate Teams Series.
Thursday 31st May
What a morning. The QLD girls defeated SA 3.5 -2.5 in the bronze medal playoff. Again, Kirsty got the ball rolling with a 3 and 2 win. Undefeated, what a super series she's had.
The men have come from nowhere and the 6/1 win over SA puts them into tomorrow's final against the Vics. T'Mac and Ruffels again?
In this morning's match, Taylor has taken a super scalp with a 5 and 4 win over Anthony Murdaca. You might recall that Murdoch won a place in the recent US Masters.
We should be in for a treat tomorrow.
We'd 29th pm.
While Taylor lost 3 and 2 , QLD prevailed over NSW 4/3. (Will have to wait until State of Origin!). This leaves QLD in third place but with WA having a bye tomorrow, QLD can sneak into the gold medal playoff with a good win over SA.
Wed 29th AM.
The men had an emphatic win over NT with Taylor merciless in his 6 and 5 victory. The team plays NSW this afternoon.
Unfortunately the girls slumped to a 3/2 loss which will confine them to the bronze medal playoff. Obviously the team missed it's secret weapon as Kirsty suffered a wrist injury and was rested. Hopefully some treatment this afternoon will have her primed for another winning performance tomorrow. 

Tuesday, 29th

A quiet second morning for the Redcliffe duo with the men having a bye and Kirsty being rested.
The girls lost 3/2 to the hosts Victoria.
In the afternoon, the men lost a tight one to to WA with Taylor going down 3 and 2. Queensland defeated NSW (probably the only time this year) at Royal Melbourne with Kirsty winning 2 up. I'm sure we are all starting to see where he strength of the girls' team lies!!
The men lay in 5th place and would a miracle to win the series. In the Women's series, QLD need to defeat WA, equal on points, but 1 match in front, and needs SA to spring a major upset over leaders Victoria.

Monday 27th

Ruffles V Redcliffe.
A bleak, chilly morning greeted the Victorian and Queensland number ones, Ryan Ruffles and Taylor MacDonald (the only person in Melbourne not wearing a jumper.), for the opening match of the series at Huntingdale. And a great contest it was!
After winning the first, TMac found himself 2 down at the turn. With 3 to go he drew level only to suffer a lost ball with the following drive. Ryan was in the trees at the last but was "unruffled" and played the shot of the match to within a couple of metres and clinch a 1 up win. This gave the Vics  a 5.5 - 1.5 victory
It was an enthralling match and a credit to both players.
In the pm match against Tasmania, QLD secured a 5.4 - 2.5 win with Taylor winning 1up. Weld are in 3rd place after day one.
Over at Royal Melbourne, Kirsty Hodgkin led QLD to  a 3.5 - 1.5 win over SA in the morning with a resounding 5/4 victory. With 6 holes to play most of the other matches were in trouble but the girls rallied for the win. In the afternoon, Kirsty cruised to a 3 up lead which she still held after 8. Another "twig from nowhere" saw her lead by 2 at the turn.
After mixed form over the next 4 holes, Kirsty got back to a three hole lead which she maintained for a 3/2 win. Her instructions were, "Don't tell them how I played, just that I won." I should play as badly!
The QLD girls are tied for 1st after day one.
