Low Laithes make finals two years in a row


Daily Mail
15 Sep 2015

MARILYN CHAPMAN and Jill Ware will make an immediate return to finals week at the Daily Mail Foursomes.

But Ely Walmsley and Denise Baggott missed out on a second appearance at the showpiece within two years by the narrowest of margins.

Marilyn and Jill, from the Low Laithes club in West Yorkshire, reached the last 16 at Marriott Dalmahoy last October, and they booked their place in this year’s showdown at the Marriott Forest of Arden next month with a 2&1 victory over Forest Pines’ Sue Harvey and Sue Over in the seventh round.

But Ely and Denise, from the Holsworthy club in Devon, suffered the anguish of losing in extra holes in the last round of games before the finals reckoning when they were beaten at the 19th by West Berkshire’s Mary Harwood and Gale McAuley in the seventh round.

The demise of Ely, a former Devon Ladies Championship finalist who reached the semi-final this year, and Denise was in stark contrast to their previous performances in this year’s tournament.

The Holsworthy golfers, who reached the last 16 at Marriott St Pierre in 2013, had not been taken beyond the 14th hole in any of their previous four matches. They had disposed of Fingle Glen’s Jane Cornelius and Helen Soward by the 13th hole, 6&5, in the fourth round, and did for Truro’s Vicki Stevenson and Kat Stopford 7&5 in the sixth round.

They also beat Saunton’s Alison Down and Yvonne Medlam 6&4 in the third round and repeated the scoreline in their fifth-round demolition of Exminster’s Lauren Pearce and Lucinda Lacey.

But the tables were turned when they visited West Berkshire.
