Woking through to round three


Daily Mail
04 May 2010

BEWARE the injured golfer, they say, and Sally Burke took that statement at its words as she made her way through to the Daily Mail Foursomes' third round.

The Woking golfer broke a toe two days before her second-round match against West Surrey sisters in law Sue and Chris Monger.

But she soldiered on and, along with playing partner Penny Scott, pulled off a 2&1 victory.

Sally said: 'I stubbed my toe in the middle of the night on the same dressing table stool as a broke another toe on previously.

I couldn't walk for about a week last time. But that was my little toe and this was a middle toe and perhaps that made it different.

'My toe was black and blue but it felt fine. I could have had a buggy but I decided not to bother.'

If Sally and Penny, both in their 50s, get through their third-round match against Silvermere's Sue Witney and Dorte Gray next weekend, their future opponents may also have to be beware the injured golfer.

Because this time Penny will be struggling after having a knee operation in two weeks' time and will be hobbling for some weeks afterwards.

The Woking women have already had two hard games to get this far, having needed an extra hole to get past their first-round opponents, Judy Flanagan and Sue Withrington, from Sutton Green.

But that was nothing compared to the second-round victory achieved by Tynemouth's Carol Brodie and Caroline Combe, who fought back from four down with four to play at Boldon to win at the second extra hole.
