Southampton Ladies claim victory in Knight Cup Final

Finals day for the Knight Cup was held on a sunny day at Wellow Golf club.   The competition started with 51 clubs competing for the trophy and the four teams making finals day were Weybrook Park, North Hants, Barton on Sea and Southampton Ladies.

The first match was between North Hants represented by Carole Sparling and Maggie Core and Barton on Sea represented by Vicki Harrison and Karin Williams.   Barton on Sea went into a commanding lead of 4up but North Hants worked their way back into the match which in the end was very close with North Hants winning on the 19th hole.

The second match was between Weybrook Park represented by Sue Gale and Jan Swift and Southampton Ladies represented by Debbie Emery and Val Jones.   Southampton Ladies held a slender lead right through to the 18 hole when Weybrook Park drew level. However, Southampton Ladies managed to win the 19 hole to progress to the final.

After the lunch break Southampton Ladies started well winning the first 2 holes.   North Hants managed to win the 3rd hole and halve the next 2 holes before going 2 down again.  Holes 7 & 8 were halved before Southampton won the 9th hole to go 3 up at the turn. North Hants could only manage to halve one more hole before Southampton Ladies went on to claim the trophy.

Congratulations to all four teams on reaching Finals Day and a big thank you to Wellow Golf Club for their warm welcome and hospitality throughout the day.
