The Foursommes matchplay saw 8 teams entered into a straight k/o competition. In this format of the game players on each 2-man team take alternate shots, making it a game of patience and nerves! None more so than in the first game between Ishmael/Teasey and Wainwright/Davenport, which in an extremely tight match was decided down the 1st extra hole, with Ishmael/Teasey claiming the win.
