Husband and wife Justin and Rebecca Fores are set to walk the fairways together in search of Golfbreaks.com PGA Fourball Championship glory.

The Worksop couple, who this year celebrated the birth of their first child, will represent Bondhay Golf Club in the regional qualifier at Woodsome Hall on 31st July.

Should they finish among the leaders at the Huddersfield venue, they will qualify for the £33,250 BMW-supported final at St Mellion on August 20th-22nd.

And despite a relative lack of competitive action so far this year, Justin is confident they can make it to the prestigious showpiece.

“Anywhere you go you have to be confident that you can go out and win,” he said.

“We’ve both been getting a lot of practice in recently and I’ve been trying to find as much time as possible to play around the responsibilities I have at the club.

“I think we’re both quite good together when we get out on the course.

“We’ve played a few rounds over the last few weeks – Rebecca’s been playing really well so it’s just going to be a case of going out there and trying to make a few birdies.

Golf was the spark which ultimately resulted in the couple’s marriage in 2011.

“We got married a couple of years ago and now have a seven-month-old son together,” continued Justin.

“We’re lucky he has great-grandparents so we’re never short of a babysitter if we need a rest before playing in any events.”
