Rogers turns back the clock


Daily Mail
07 Jun 2013

MARK ROGERS has been looking to turn the clock back ever since he appeared in the Daily Mail Foursomes for the first time almost 20 years ago.
And now he has overcome a significant psychological barrier in his bid to repeat or even better his first attempt at the tournament.
The 39-year-old former Cheshire golfer, who still plays off scratch, and Andrew Hill went all the way to finals week at the first attempt in 1994 before being knocked out in the last 16.
They went on to lift the Cheshire foursomes title the following season but, despite attempting to repeat their Daily Mail achievement in the majority of years since, the Hazel Grove golfers have always fallen short.
Their best attempt came in 2009, when they reached the sixth round, but their two subsequent tries both ended in the third round.
However, after having a year out last season, Mark is back, this time with Steve Mobley, and has made it through the third round for the first time in three attempts after a 3&2 victory over Tytherington’s Ian Mathers and Jon Reeves.
Now they face Peover’s Neil Pearson and Ben Stanier, who beat Wychwood Park’s Haydn Illsy and John Collins 5&3 in their third-round match.
Finals week this year will be held at Marriott St Pierre, which has hosted tournaments such as the Solheim Cup and British Masters, in Chepstow.
