The Runners and Riders

In order of Wedge caps: Michael Hedges – Oh Captain Oh Captain. Deals unconventional captain leads through the unique use of defeatist rhetoric and modest humility.

The 7th Wedge Trophy

Four Walton wins, were followed by a controversial halved match, and then, a somewhat litigious abandonment of the 6th Wedge Trophy!
