Eden’s claim FourBall Title

Congratulations to Father and Son team Roger and Nick Eden, who this weekend won the Porters Wood Golf Course FourBall Better Ball title with a resounding 6&5 triumph in the final!

After qualifying from the group stage with 3 wins out of 3, the Eden’s beat Bennett and Willis 2&1 in the semi-final stage, before meeting the 2010 winners, Martin Ishmael and Andy Teasey in the final. Ishmael and Teasey had topped their respective group before beating Davenport and Wainwright 2&1 in the semi-finals.

In the final, held over 18 holes, Ishmael/Teasey edged into a 1 hole lead after 3 holes before the Eden’s, who dove-tailed each other magnificently, won 5 holes on the bounce with four nett birdies and an eagle to go 4up. Roger and Nick went onto to win emphatically 6&5.
