At one stage during the singles matches, with leads in four matches, it looked as if the GUI team might take the cup. The MGA team came through under pressure, though, with Walker Cup hopeful Mike Miller sinking a key putt from off the green on the 18th hole for a key half that put the Americans over the top.
MGA Team Captain Jeff Holzschuh, said afterward, “It is a great win. We just happened to get an extra point today, but it could have gone either way. We wanted both Max and Mike who really had performed quite well yesterday to be the last two in the line up but the whole team played really well."
It was the second consecutive Carey Cup victory for the MGA and their first on Irish soil in the event’s ten match history.
