THETFORD’S Jessica Dixon and Shelly Pleasance are growing in confidence in The Daily Mail Foursomes, as they chase a place in the grand finals, writes Cara Sloman.
The determined duo reached the sixth round of the world’s largest golf competition by beating Phon Green and Mary Gamble from Bawburgh 2&1 at home to move a step nearer to October’s showdown at Marriott St Pierre.
‘It would be really good for the club and for Norfolk if we can get there,’ said Dixon, 22. ‘That’s what we’re aiming for. We would love to get some recognition for the golf club.’
It was Bawburgh though who moved into an early lead, winning the first, before Dixon and Pleasance succeeding in bringing the match back to all square after the fourth. From then on they were in control, firing a birdie at the seventh on the way to victory.
The experienced pair have played foursomes for the county together and are one of the lowest-handicap sides left in the women’s competition, with Dixon, off two and Pleasance, off three.
They must negotiate two more rounds if they are to be one the last 16 men’s and women’s pairs battling it out for the coveted trophies in Chepstow.
The pair are thriving on the challenge and Dixon added: ‘It is good fun. We’ve had some really difficult matches and won them. With our handicaps we expect to give quite a few shots. It really makes you concentrate. You can’t let anything go.
‘We feel confident going into the rounds now. Each win is a little bit more confidence and it’s good.’
