Worsley GC go to extra holes on four out of six matches

WORSLEY members embroiled in this year’s Daily Mail Foursomes may be revising their idea of how long a game of golf actually lasts.

No fewer than four of the club’s first six matches in this year’s tournament have gone to extra holes, with Michael Howell and Jonathan May having to go all the way to the 24th hole even to get through their first-round match, against Ringway’s Chris Buckley and Rick Walmsley.

They were taken to the 18th hole before beating Marriott Worsley Park’s Richard Fletcher and Michael Waterfield by one hole in the second round, but it was back to extra holes in round three as they beat Ashton on Mersey’s Paul Brough and Mark Davin at the 19th.

Worsley’s representatives in the ladies’ tournament, Miriam Platt and Carol Mclellan, had to go to the 21st hole to beat Stand’s Geraldine Snook and Lynda Knapper in the first round and toppled Leigh’s Joanne Lennox-Warburton and Sheila Thompson at the 19th hole in the third round.

In between, they also went to the 18th hole to account for Prestwich’s Freda Mason and Barbara Elliott by one hole in the second round.

Chatsworth’s Kevin Needham and Tom Marvin, who went to the 20th hole to win through each of their first two matches in the men’s tournament, finally went out in the third round, losing 3&2 to Matlock’s Phil Evans and Richard Giles.

Players must win through seven round to reach finals week, for the last 16 pairings in each tournament. This year’s finals will be held at Marriott St Pierre in Chepstow.
