Double is still on For Wilton


Daily Mail
09 Aug 2016

TWO pairings who were looking to make an immediate return to finals week at the Daily Mail Foursomes saw their hopes come crashing down in the penultimate round of matches before the showpiece.

Defeat in the sixth round was particularly hard to take for Hornsea’s Leigh Gawley and Rees Brown, who reached the last 16 in October. They went all the way to the second extra hole during their match at Wilton before finally being edged out by the home side’s Mark Newcombe and Kevin Nixon.

Wilton are still striving to send both their men’s and women’s pairings to finals week after Pearl Crossen and Janet Payne beat Rudding Park’s Julie Parry and Sandra Taylor 3&2 in the women’s sixth round. Both have just their seventh-round matches to negotiate in order to reach the showpiece, which this year will be held at Marriott St Pierre at Chepstow, South Wales.

There will be no return to finals week, however, for Anne Main and Lynne Thom, of Burntisland Golf House, who reached the quarter-finals at the Marriott Forest of Arden in October before losing to eventual finalists Debbie Deakin and Shelley Woodward.

They went out with this year’s finals agonisingly close when they lost
4&3 to Leven’s Moira Roberts and Lesley Hunter.
