Update from Tim Unwin:
Myself and Scott Brown flew into Faro to be greeted with 18 degrees of heat that stayed with us for the whole trip making a nice change!
A practice round on the Ocean Course showed us the challenge ahead which proved wasn’t going to be easy - long/tight and very fast undulating greens was a culture shock. We averaged 33 points a round with the winning team 42.5 (170) one consolation is this team played two years ago and shot the same as us hopefully experience will prove that in the future.
Looking back the prize is getting to Portugal, a bit disappointed to to have not played well, but the motivation to at least return for the weather alone!! makes next year's application easy to enter.
