St. Michael’s Harrison Crowe has carved out a winning 3/2 record as part of the winning Asia- Pacific Confederation team against Europe’s best amateurs for the coveted Bonallack Trophy in Spain over the weekend.
Alongside South Australian Jack Buchanan, Crowe was making his first appearance in the biennial contest and looked set to ride home a big weekend with victory in the singles on the final day when he was one up with two to play.
It was not to be, however, and Crowe could only look on as his Norwegian opponent won the final two holes of the match – the last with a clutch eagle.
It was an otherwise solid week of golf for Corwe, who now heads to Cherry Hills in Ohio for the US Amateur Championship alongside fellow New South Wales entrant, Jeffrey Guan.
