Final joy for Viv and Sue


Daily Mail
28 Aug 2018

VIV MONUMENT and Sue Dix had never teamed up together before this year’s Daily Mail Foursomes and now the Kingsdown duo have the honour of being the first pair to reach the grand finals, writes Cara Sloman.
The Wiltshire side won four of their seven knockout matches away from home and wrapped up their latest victory 4&3 at the Vale Resort beating Maria Woods and Linda Blake to clinch their place in the October showpiece, held at the Marriott St Pierre.
‘We kept it steady at crucial times. On the day our putts went in and theirs didn’t. It was purely down to that,’ admitted Monument, who has only been a member at the club for just over a year.
She stepped in when Dix’s original partner was injured before the club’s qualifying competition for the tournament and the couple have since been unstoppable in the world’s largest golf competition.
Monument said: ‘It is pure chance we played together. This comp is how we’ve got to know each other.
‘We’ve approached every round the same and that is to enjoy the day and have a good time, win or lose. Winning is a huge bonus, but it shouldn’t be the only reason. We’ve enjoyed each round and the company we’ve played against. It’s been fun.’
They are delighted to be one of the 16 men’s and 16 women’s teams who will be competing on the Chepstow course which has hosted the British Masters and Solheim Cup, especially as it is only 40 minutes drive from their club.
Monument said: ‘It’s a great venue for us. We’ve both know it quite well, which is a help. We are really proud to be representing the club.
‘Sue has been a long standing member at Kingsdown and I am new lady to the club, but I had my les-sons there when I first started, so there has always been a link. It did feel like home straight away when I joined, so I feel like a proper Kingsdown girl.’
