TONY GOODE - HOME INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS
Ireland celebrated another success at the Home Internationals and made history by winning their fourth successive title.
No Irish team has gone this deep before. A tie with England on the final day at Moortown ensured that Tony Goode's team collected the Raymond Trophy yet again, writing their names in the record books as the first Irish side to retain the title for the third year running.

For Tony Goode, it was his third time to lead a winning team at the Home Internationals, signing off on his Irish captaincy in style.
"I'm very proud of what we've achieved," said Goode. "It's fantastic for Irish amateur golf. The success is a testament to the commitment and dedication of the players. These guys have set a benchmark for Irish amateur golf and that's very important. They're giving the younger boys something to aspire to."
