Gog Magog duo earn home turf victory

Nick Smits and Dave Quinney secured a sudden death play-off win to retain their Cambridgeshire Area Golf Union Foursomes Championship crown.

On Gog Magog’s Old Course, 44 pairs did battle for one of the major trophies in Cambs golf.

Former county champion Toby Crisp and George Howard were the early leaders with gross 68, which included five birdies.

Gog Magog duo Smits and Quinney were hot on their heels with 71, while leading the net competition were Links’ county seniors Hamish Fleming and Dick Douglas with 68.

In the afternoon, it turned into a two-horse race as Crisp and Howard returned 73 for a gross total of 141, while Smits and Quinney shot 70 to also end on 141. Ramsey’s Craig Thorburn and Ollie Wright were next best with 150 (74, 76).

It meant it went to a play-off on the first hole, and when the Links’ pairing of Crisp and Howard were unable to get down in two after their pitch spun off the green, Smits and Quinney retained the crown they won at Saffron Walden last year.

The host club had more joy as Tom Rogers and Bill Rusted won the net competition on countback from Girton’s Paul Tuite and Peter Dean and Bourn’s Mark Lydon and Andrew Barnard after all three shot 146.

An afternoon highlight came as the Links’ Matt Hartley and Lee Allen improved their morning score by 15 strokes with a creditable 72.
