This year, CTC team member, Mark Justice is the only St Enodoc representative playing in the country\'s most prestigious Foursomes competition. The long standing event is open to all under a handicap system all its own with men pros off +1, men amateurs Scratch, lady pros 2, lady amateurs 4 and with everyone playing off the men\'s tees. Mark is playing again this year with Worplesdon\'s Lisa McGowan, former British Mid Amateur Champion and multi time Surrey Champion. Last year they lost in the second round on the last green to two doughty former Tour players Andrew Sherborne and Andrew Oldcorn. The field is full of interesting names of not only golfers like Barry Lane but 2 well known footballers Jimmy Bullard (playing with Stiggy Hodgson) and Andriy Schevchenko.
Mark and Lisa\'s opponents in Round 1 on Tuesday 11th March will be James Doswell (Highwoods) and Colton Alleyne-Davis (Beauport Park) both of whom are pros in Sussex who play Europro level tour golf; as a result Mark and Lisa will be receiving 6 shots which should help! The prize for whoever wins this match is likely to be a second round game against World Amateur No. 1 Matt Fitzpatrick, who played so well in the Open last year, he has cut short his American University education at North Western University in Chicago whose alumni include Luke Donald and returned to progress his amateur career in the UK.
