Haste Hill and Carus Green just hold on

HASTE HILL and Carus Green had to work hard to win their spots in the fourth round of The Daily Mail Foursomes, with both clubs emerging from marathon sudden death play-offs, writes Cara Sloman.
Liam Cella and Steve Brownsea from Haste Hill are out to make a point after being knocked out in the last 16 at the grand finals last year. But they were pushed all the way by Batchworth Park’s Seb Myers and Richard Murray, who won the last three holes to walk off the 18th green all square.
Despite their late collapse the focused home pair held on to eventually snatch victory at the fourth extra hole with a par.
‘It was a proper test,’ said Cella, ‘We knew what we had to do. We both want to get to the finals again and prove we can do even better.’
Elsewhere Carus Green’s Margaret Bebington and Ali Dufty eventually wrapped up their tie at Morecambe at the third extra hole to knock out another of last year’s finalists.
‘It was a bit epic. We don’t make it easy for ourselves,’ said Bebington, who put her tee shot to within four feet of the pin at the short par three to ensure they beat Sue Greenwood and Helen Snowball.
‘I was intending to lay up for my partner and hit it better than expected. We knew we were pretty safe then. We would very much like to keep the run going,’ she added.
There is an extra incentive for the pair to do well as Bebington, off nine, is the clubhouse manager at the Cumbria club and Dufty is the ladies captain this year.
The last 16 men’s and women’s pairs will battle it out at the Marriott St Pierre in October.
