Senior Women's Home Internationals at Newport

Scots lead England 2-1 after foursomes

Scotland took a 2-1 foursomes lead over England on Day 2 of the Senior Women's Home International Matches at balmy Newport Golf Club, Wales.
This clash of the two Day 1 winning countries is likely to decide who is going to go on and win the trophy. Scotland have never won the title in this over-50s series which began six years ago. In fact, the Scots have never beaten the English at this level.
But for England's Christine Quinn holing a 10ft putt at the last for a one-hole victory in the lead-off foursomes, Scotland would have had an even bigger lead to carry forward to the five afternoon singles.
England won the first four championships until Wales broke their strangehold by claiming the Johnson Trophy last year.
Wales lost their Day 1 match 6-2 to England and are trailing Ireland 2-1 after their foursomes.
