Day one of the GolfSixes was nothing less than impressive, with both the England Women's team and European Women's team making it through to day two of the tournament.

In the first year that women have been invited to go head to head to against the men, this year’s GolfSixes features an England Women’s team of Georgia Hall and Charley Hull, a European Women’s Team of Suzann Pettersen and Mel Reid, lead by none other than Solheim Cup Captain Catriona Matthew in the Captains team. And whilst the home sides lead the way heading into day two of the event, it was the women who stole the show in a thrilling day of GolfSixes action yesterday, and rightly so as both women's teams advanced to Sunday’s knockout stages at Centurion Club.

The England women, who began their first GolfSixes experience with a draw against Pepperell and Wallace, will face Group C winners Ireland at the quarter final stage on Sunday. Meanwhile, a clash against the French pair of Mike Lorenzo-Vera and Romain Wattel awaits the England men.

The European Women team of Carlota Ciganda and Mel Reid had earlier pulled off a memorable result, defeating defending champions Denmark in a play-off to finish second in Group A behind the Thai pairing of Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Thongchai Jaidee.

"I think this is a huge opportunity to showcase women's golf. We don't get the coverage and we don't get as supported as I feel like we should. An event like this is huge for us. Hopefully a few more people will want to take up the game of golf now because they see how passionate we are about it. We have a lot of fun out there. I can't stop having fun with this one. That's what it's all about," Mel Reid

Carlota Ciganda: “It's so much fun that I just wanted to play tomorrow. I had so much fun today in match play, and especially with a great friend like Mel. It's tough for Denmark that they had a three putt, but it's golf and we are happy to be here tomorrow and try to win the GolfSixes.

“We are very competitive and we want to win at the end of the day, and especially Mel and I, we want to play and compete. I think it's really good for women's golf, seeing us play with the men and hopefully more girls will start playing some golf. I can't wait for tomorrow.”

Eddie Pepperell and Matt Wallace defeated South Africa in their final match to top Group D, following Georgia Hall and Charley Hull who advanced on the holes won rule after a narrow defeat to Sweden just a few minutes earlier.

Australia’s Sam Brazel and Wade Ormsby won Group B to set up a quarter final clash with the European Women, while Thailand face an all-Asia clash against runners-up Soomin Lee and Jeunghun Wang of South Korea.

“It's been great. Every time someone has been asked who is their favourite golfer, all I keep hearing is Georgia or Charley,” Eddie Pepperell

"We had a good, tough match with the girls and were just relieved to not lose that. Then the second game, we played a bit scrappy at the end. But we really wanted to be here tomorrow, so now that we are, it's going to be great."
