Lauren Gooding & Jo Thesiger (Roehampton) win the London Foursomes

Lauren Gooding and Jo Thesiger (Roehampton) won the London Foursomes at The Berkshire beating the holders, The Berkshire, 2&1 in the final.  In the morning semi-final Roehampton beat Sunningdale 3/2 while The Berkshire beat West Sussex 5/3. 


Lauren and Jo played very steadily in the afternoon against The Berkshire who were the stronger team on paper.  Lauren was striking the ball very well and gave the team a good advantage with her length off the tee.  Roehampton were 2 up after 2 but all square after 9th.  They edged to 3 up after 13th but The Berkshire won the next two holes so Roehampton were only 1 up after 15th.  It was all getting quite tense at this stage, but they managed to win the16th with a 5 and halved the 17th in 4 to win 2&1.


Congratulations to Lauren and Jo for a great win.  They played 111 holes over 3 days, winning at the 19th, 20th, 17th, 22nd, 16th and 17th.
