The shuttles from the hotel to Essex County are fun. A very friendly woman is our organizer at the hotel. She rounds up us, makes sure no one is left behind. This morning she passed out copies of the Boston Globe story on the results. Big busses, full of the English, Irish and Scot supporters who are staying at my hotel. It’s a half-hour trip and they chat happily, even happier this morning because of GB&I’s one-point lead. My seat mate this morning was Irish. “We have more Irish come over this year,” she said, “because Mary McKenna (the GB&I captain) is Irish and we have three Irish players on the team” The Irish fans will have a lot to cheer for this morning. Twins Leona and Lisa Macguire are paired together in this morning’s four-ball match against the USA’s Jennifer Song and Cydney Clanton.
