Symonds and Whyman find their rhythm

Daily Mail
19 Jun 2018

IPSWICH'S Abbie Symonds and Lottie Whyman needed all their county experience and determination to knock out Rushmere and clinch a spot in the fifth round of the Daily Mail Foursomes, writes Cara Sloman.
The visiting pair, who both play for Suffolk, survived a scare when they found themselves three down against June Kenworthy and Margaret Scales.
Symonds, off four, admitted: 'We hadn't played our best on the front nine. You have to refocus. You have to dig deep and think, "I'm a single figure handicapper. Just play like you know you can play".'
And that is exactly what they did. Back-to-back birdies and a par brought them level after 13 and they continued their revival, halving the last with a par to seal a one-up victory.
'It was definitely our closest match,' said Symonds, 21. 'We're lucky we gel so well together. We have similar games and we're really good friends.'
The pair would love to keep their winning run going all the way to the October grand finals at the Marriott St Pierre in South Wales, especially as their lady captain Anna Fairs made it that far in 2010 when she played for Felixstowe Ferry and reached the quarter finals.
Symonds said: ‘She has told us about it. It would be nice to see how far we can get and see if we can make it to the last 16.’
The pair are currently competing at county week and earlier this month Whyman, 22, was a joint winner in the Astor Salver tournament at The Berkshire.
Symonds added: ‘The summer’s just got started, hopefully it will keep on getting better.’
