Met Golf Association Finally Wins In Ireland

It took the Metropolitan Golf Association 21 years and six attempts but history was finally made last week as the MGA team claimed victory on Irish soil for the first time in the Gov. Hugh L. Carey Challenge Cup.
Playing in the penultimate singles match last Monday, Max Buckley mounted a remarkable comeback and won three of his final five holes, including a crucial par on the 18th, to defeat Alex Gleeson, 1 up, and guarantee the MGA would carry the Cup back to America for at least another two years. The final score was a 6½-5½ triumph for the MGA over the Golfing Union of Ireland at The European Club in Wicklow, Ireland.
