Symonds who was 3up after 18 was still 3up after 31 holes with five to play, Down came storming back and missed a putt on the 36th hole that would have sent the game to a sudden-death play-off. Symonds said, “Down pushed me hard today, she never gaveup and I just had to concentrate on my game, I was getting extremely tired after playing 36 holes yesterday and was doing another 36 today was another big challenge, but I am happy with my game.”
In the Men’s Consolation Flight, Andrew Osbourne needed to go to sudden-death before getting the better of Julian Brassington. The pair were even after 18 holes and Osbourne won the title on the 19th hole.
