Welsh amateur champion sees Morlais through.


Daily Mail
10 Jun 2014

WELSH amateur champion Jack Bush could well be the player to beat after making it through round three in this year’s Daily Mail Foursomes.
Jack pulled off a resounding triumph in the Welsh final at Ashburnham last August, when he beat Southerndown’s Mike Hearne 9&8.
Now he has teamed up with fellow Morlais Castle member Ceirion Jones in this year’s Daily Mail Foursomes, and they made it into the fourth round with a 2&1 victory over Simon Davies and Paul Jones, from Tredegar & Rhymney.
However, there are never any guarantees in the Daily Mail Foursomes. Just ask Emma Goddard, Cheshire county champion for the last two years, and fellow county team-mate and Royal Liverpool member Claire Fry.
The highly fancied pairing had romped into the third round with a 4&3 victory over Caldy’s Jenny Hurst and Pat Smith in round one and a 3&2 triumph over Wirral Ladies’ Christine Wheeldon and Liz Munroe in the second round.
But they went down to Angela Birkenhead and Mo Luddon, from Eccleston Park, by an equally emphatic 3&2 margin in the third round.
Steve Taylor, from Colne Valley, showed that the higher handicap players have an equally good chance of progressing in the foursomes. Steve usually plays off his handicap of 22 but is restricted to 18 shots in the Daily Mail format.
However, Steve and clubmate Paul Davies were still too strong for the Manor of Groves’ pair, although it did take them to the third extra hole before they could complete their triumph.
It was the second match running that the Colne Valley pairing had gone to extra holes, having beaten Gosfield Lake’s Chris Wash and Bernie Gaught at the 19th hole in the second round.
