All square after 5 holes was the prelude to a storming run of 9 holes in level par by Paul which gave him a well deserved 5 & 4 victory. Paul was unavailable for comment after the victory, as he had left his meter running, but Phil said that his policy regarding the tipping of cabbies will remain unchanged.
