2018 B Grade Ladies Foursomes
B GRADE LADIES FOURSOMES
In very trying conditions the B women’s foursome final was played on Thursday 30 August.
On paper a very even match, which didn’t disappoint. Lesley Denny and Kath Cloclasure jumped out to an early lead, being 2 up after 3 holes. Holding their nerve Elizabeth Shapcott and Judy Burton won the next two holes to square the match.
After 9 holes the match remained square, with both teams winning another hole each.
After 14 holes Judy and Elizabeth had jumped to a 2 hole lead. Not to be denied, Kath and Lesley won the next two holes to once again square the match.
Two very good drives on the 16th saw each team par the hole and remain square.
By now the wind had really picked up and many times the buggies had blown over when not attended. On the 17th hole a 3 putt to Lesley and Kath resulting in being one down with one to play.
The 18th hole saw both teams reaching the green in four. A three putt this time to Elizabeth and Judy resulted in a square match.
Onwards to the 1st hole, with a roaring tail wind which saw both drives safely in the fairway. As Elizabeth was about to hit, the wind opened her umbrella and her buggy was sent almost airborne down the fairway. Both teams reached the green in three. Lesley and Kath held their nerve to finish with a 5 to win the hole and the match. All players played extremely well in the conditions. Congratulations to all for making the final. With a big thank you to Susan Bywaters for the above report and for also referring the match.
A Grade Foursomes will be played on Saturday between Young Mi Ko & Carolyn Coleman vs Merrilyn Middleton & Sarah Russell.
