Twins Lose to Mother and Son


Home advantage proved decisive as members Carole and Richard Caldwell beat favourites Samantha and Johanna Head 2&1 in a tense final to win the 59th Sunningdale Foursomes in the club's centenary year.

The 'mother and son' pairing lost the first hole but then took charge, twice building up a three-hole cushion against the 27-year-old Head twins who are both members of the Ladies' European Tour.

A par three on the 13th enabled the twins to reduce their deficit to two holes before a birdie putt from Richard on the 14th put the Caldwells three ahead again with only four to play.

Again the deficit was cut back on the next but Samantha then missed from five feet on the 16th to reduce the lead even further and the match ended on the 17th when her birdie putt slipped agonisingly past.
