Walmley win against the odds


Daily Mail
23 Jun 2015

TWO international golfers fell by the wayside in the fourth round of the Daily Mail Foursomes.
Oliver Farrell represented England at the Fairhaven Trophy/Nations Cup last year and has victories in the Midland Youth Championship and Worcestershire Amateur Stroke Play Championship on his resume.
But the Daily Mail Foursomes always gives the club golfer the chance to claim a prized scalp, and the Evesham player and father Les were beaten 2&1 by Walmley’s Martin Harris and Alex McWhinnie in the fourth round.
Lee Jones, who has represented Wales, and Conwy colleague Steve Eardley also went out, though Eastham Lodge’s Henry Molloy and Barry Merrick had to go to the first extra hole to claim their valued scalp.
Two top county players also went out. Cambridgeshire’s Kevin Taylor fell when he and fellow St Ives golfer Simon Russell were beaten 3&2 by Elton Furze’s Lewis Richardson and Lee Blewett.
Middlesex regular Jake Mildenhall and The Buckinghamshire’s Alex Smith lost by one hole to Rickmansworth John Shamoon and Graham Simon.
There is still plenty of quality left in the tournament, however. Cornwall’s Adam Curtis, a runner-up in the county’s amateur championship last year, and fellow Bude and North Cornwall golfer Mervyn Hegarty progressed to the fifth round with a one-hole win over Newquay father and son Dave and Tom Savage, while Warwickshire’s Will Smith and Stoneleigh Deer Park colleague Johnny Reay triumphed 4&3 over The Bedfordshire’s Simon Fardell and Gary Clarke.
Players must negotiate seven rounds to reach finals week, which this year will be hosted by the Marriott Forest of Arden in the West Midlands.
