Early exit for last year's high flyers


Daily Mail
14 Apr 2015

If a week is a long time in politics, then six months is an eternity in the Daily Mail Foursomes.
Mary Finney and Jean Kelly, of Marriott Worsley Park, were definitely in the red camp as they reached the final last October, running up the red numbers as they closed on the big one before eventually losing to Northamptonshire County’s Stephanie Goodings and Susanne Barrick.
But they will have been undeniably blue after losing in the first round of this year’s tournament, beaten 2&1 by Davyhulme Park’s Cheryl Gillings and Elaine Sanderson.
Mary and Jean were one of four pairings who reached last October’s showpiece at Marriott Dalmahoy to fall at the first hurdle this year.
Serlby Park’s Phil Dernie and Andrew Pugsley reached the quarter-finals six months ago, but they were edged out by one hole by Doncaster Town Moor’s Jeff Clark and Kevin Pearson this time around.
Killiow’s Roger Hoare and Matthew Patton lost in the last 16 last year… and in the last 1500 this year, going down 3&2 to Newquay’s David and Tom Savage in the first round.
In the women’s event, Amanda Burchell and Jane Rickman, from Bigbury on the south Devon coast, also went out in the final 16 in Scotland last October. But they were humbled 7&6 by China Fleet’s Karen Whitby and Lyn Wilcox in this year’s first round.
This year’s finals will be held at the Marriott Forest of Arden in the West Midlands in October.
