Golfing girls fly the flag for Stourbridge
12:27pm Thursday 17th October 2013 in Sport
STOURBRIDGE Golf Club duo of Biddy Denton and Louise Bennett did the club proud by battling their way to the finals of this year’s Daily Mail Foursomes competition.
They travelled to Marriott St Pierre in Chepstow this week after successfully negotiating seven qualifying rounds before unluckily losing out to a Scottish partnership from Murcar Links in Aberdeenshire after 19 enthralling holes.
It caps a remarkable achievement as Denton and Bennett only joined forces in March.
But they went onto progress through rounds at Bridgnorth, Handsworth, Kidderminster, Worfield, Rose Hill, Forest of Arden and then Wrekin, before booking their place at Chepstow.
The match at Rose Hill, near Lickey Hills, proved a particularly titanic struggle, going all the way to the 20th hole.
More than 2,000 clubs originally set out in the competition, regarded as one of the best amateur golf events in the world and it’s a tribute that the duo battled their way through to the last 16.
