European Team Championship 2014

French golf website "Le Monde du Golf" report on VII European Team Championship

Catalonia retained the European championship title at Xixerella Park in Andorra. Leading 2-1 after the morning foursomes, the Catalans won three and half singles points to secure a 5.5 to 3.5 verdict over a gallant Netherlands team. The Catalans won the opening afternoon singles (Josep Martinez over Jeroen Huberts) to lead 3-1. However the Dutch fought back to 3-3 after big singles victories by Andorra Open winner Melvin Slaats and Marcel Ahuis. However, vital wins by the experienced Jordi Serra and Dani Gimenez and a halved match for Marc Lloret left the Catalans celebrating their second successive European Team Championship win.
