Gallachers fall on the final green
Thursday 28 March 1996
Bernard Gallacher, the former Ryder Cup captain, and his 18-year-old son Jamie were beaten on the last green in the second round of the Sunningdale Foursomes yesterday.
The Gallachers looked to be heading for victory when birdies at both the seventh and eighth holes put them two up against Sunningdale members Ian Campbell and Mark Roberts.
But the local pair birdied the next two holes to level before the Gallachers, representing Wentworth, won the 11th, lost the 12th and took the 13th to go one up with five to play.
Once again Campbell and Roberts battled back, winning the 15th and 16th to go one up and then halving the next two holes for victory.
At the final hole, young Gallacher had to hole a tricky putt to keep the match alive but the ball hit the back of the hole and bounced three feet past.
Germany's Bernhard Langer has withdrawn from the pounds 2m Players' Championship, which starts in Florida today, because of a shoulder injury.
