Lynn Lambert (11) V Tilly Garfoot (7)
As the first match out and knowing that an early point on the board was crucial the adrenaline was certainly flowing. Fortunately my short game was very sharp today and I managed a 6 &5 win for the team.
Karen Cook (11) V Elaine Hancock (10)
Had a great match, I had some nerves early on but I held on and played well and putted nicely. A thoroughly enjoyable match and a lovely opponent.
Carol Wigham (17) V Angela Roper (11)
It was very close and Angela hit a lovely ball. I managed to hold my nerves in check towards the end to win on the 17th. It was a good match.
Naomi Pilmer (14) V Elizabeth Holbrook (15)
It was a very tight match – back and forth all the way. Our caddies were invaluable!
Sarah Greenall (5) V Matilde Kedzlie (6)
As the anchor match I knew that my result might be key. My opponent had a fantastic swing and hit the ball a lot further than I did. I went 2 down early on but then luckily I found my putting form and slotted in a total of 4 birdies. We both played exceedingly well and it was a high quality match with Matilde being only 3 over par and myself 2 under by the close of the match on the 15th.
Big thank you to Elaine & the Spalding Ladies for a hard fought match and Spalding created a splendid atmosphere by brining so many supporters. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be Spalding’s day but hopefully they will be back to try again next year.
As for Sarah & the Links Ladies congratulations on an emphatic 5-0 win.
it’s onwards to the 6th round with the winner booking their place in the Grand Final at the fantastic Montecastillo Golf & Spa Resort in Spain between the 19th & 23rd November.
