Summer Greensomes Final

The 2010 Summer Greensomes final between Anna Pitfield & Michele Lowden (Harleyford) and Phillipa Cook & Sue Ashworth (Woburn) was held at Ellesborough Golf Club on Saturday 16th October. The match was played on a dry autumn afternoon with a cold northerly breeze. With a large entry for this year's competition, only in its second year, this was the sixth round to be played. 

It was a very tight match, with neither side being more than two holes ahead at any stage. The first hole was halved in par and Anna and Michele won the second to go 1 up. Both pairs won two holes each on the remaining front nine, and so Anna and Michele reached the turn one ahead. The tenth par three was halved in birdie and Phillipa and Sue won the 11th and 12th to take the lead. A par at the 13th secured a win for the Harleyford pair and so it was all square again.

The 14th was halved but bogeys on holes 15 and 16 by Phillipa and Sue meant that Anna and Michele went to the 17th two up and two to play. Phillipa and Sue took advantage of their shot to win the 17th, and a 12 foot putt for a par at the 18th secured a win for Phillipa and Sue to take the match into extra time.

Both teams had good drives on the first - Phillipa was the first to take the approach shot and using the notorious "slope away from the monument" put a wedge shot to three feet below the hole. Anna put a very good long putt close to the hole but Sue holed the birdie putt to take the match.

Thanks to Margaret Maisey for arranging courtesy of the course at Ellesborough and for acting as Starter and Referee. Thanks also go to Pamela Seller for all her work in organising this fourth summer final, all held within a few weeks of each other.
