Readers may well remember the article below regarding Phil & Gary’s success in getting to the finals of the Daily Mail Foursomes, this is Phil’s report of their time at St Pierre:
Back from St Pierre Marriott, had a great time.
On Monday we made it to the last 16 and in the morning played Rothley Park, Leicester, we were 3 down after 11 holes but won 2 up.
In the afternoon in the quarter final we played and beat Market Drayton 2-1. We were pleased we got through the first day as we avoided all the knocked out pairs in the Champagne foursomes.
On day two in the semi-final we played Pyecombe, Brighton ; they beat us 4/2 and went on to win the final.
We overcome Glamorganshire in the match for third place which we won.
Excellent organisation; well pleased with third place.
