Sadly that wasn’t to be the case. Despite Phil having a better game in the third round (scoring a birdie and making par on several holes), he and Gareth could only draw with Kenny and Gavin – with both teams taking 4.5 holes.
The other matches didn't got the right way either and Wales finished the group joint second with England on holes won, but England went through as they had played less shots overall.
Despite this there was plenty of camaraderie between the stars in the morning session, as Gethin Jones and Rory Lawson paused for a hug, and Philip Glenister put his arm round Gavin Hastings shortly before they finished their final shots before lunch. When Glenister and Edwards lost drew with Scotland shortly after noon, Edwards told the crowd: "We'll be cheering on Woosy and all those guys in the coming weeks but it's our day today and you (Philip Glenister) really represented Wales."
Philip replied: "I was inspired, I was playing with a legend."
So Wales faced Ireland in a third place playoff this afternoon, with both teams eager not to finish last. Phil was paired with Andrew Howard and faced Danny O’Carroll and Martin O’Neill. Philip and Andrew actually lost their match 4-5, but it didn’t matter too much to the final result. In the end, it was Wales who prevailed, beating Ireland 15-12 to claim the third spot.
England went on to win the final – beating reigning champions Scotland - to be crowned 2014 winners
