Downfield's stable of top players see them through


Daily Mail
30 Jul 2013

PERHAPS the most accomplished golfer - on paper at least - at last year’s Daily Mail Foursomes finals week was Downfield’s Graham Bell.
And the Scottish club seem to have found a carbon copy replacement this year in Campbell Donaldson.
Like Graham, Campbell plays off a handicap at least two shots better than scratch. They were both part of the Downfield team that won the Angus County Club Foursomes Championship for the sixth time in eight years and Campbell was runner-up to Graham in the 2006 Angus County Championship.
Campbell teamed up with clubmate Kenneth MacArthur to move into the sixth round of this year’s Daily Mail Foursomes with a convincing 4&2 victory over Banchory’s Graeme Davidson and Paul Shinne in round five.
However, Graeme’s defeat alongside Richard Scott by Christchurch’s Christian Williams and Martyn Jones in last year’s quarter-finals proved that nothing is assured in the Daily Mail Foursomes.
And even the best will struggle if they run into a performance like that delivered by Horsley Lodge’s Chris Drabble and Dan Housley in this year’s fifth round.
Chris and Dan reeled off four birdies in six holes from the turn to close out an impressive 4&3 victory over Allestree Park’s Dave Hollis and Sam Taylor.
