There was no luck for Mark Justine and partner Lisa McGowan in Round 1 of the Sunningdale Foursomes against last year's semi finalists James Doswell (Highwoods) and Colton Alleyne-Davis (Beauport Park). Receiving 6 shots they got off to a good start and were 1 up after 12 holes. Unfortunately they were unable to keep it going and lost on the last green by 2 holes. On Mark's own admission Lisa had played very well. The hope had been that if they had won they would have played against Matt Fitzpatrick in Round 2.
There was no luck for either of the Trevose pairs who had close matches and were very unlucky to lose; Nick Gammon & Gary Lenehan lost on the last green and Ben Westgate & Phil Wells went out at the 20th.
