Morning showers cleared and a beautiful spring day greeted the contenders for the 2019 Men’s Foursomes Championship on Sunday 22 September. Troy Devine and Paul Smerdon looked to win their 6th consecutive title, which would also see Paul Smerdon winning his 8th Men’s Foursomes Championship in a row.
After a morning round of 78, Paul Smerdon and Troy Devine held a 10-shot lead going into the afternoon round. The hotly contested nett event, known as the “5th Major”, was going to be close with six teams within 5 shots of the lead heading into the afternoon round.
Paul Smerdon and Troy Devine fired another 78 to be convincing winners over Joe Shopland and Peter McLaren, making it their 6th Men’s Foursomes Championship in a row.
In the nett event, this year’s winners were David Desmarchelier and Peter Joel Roots with a fine score of 161.
Many thanks to all who participated in what is one of the most fun days on the men’s schedule.
