Congratulations to all the winners in the 2017 Matchplay Finals Day!

LAST Saturday we hosted the 2017 Matchplay Finals Day, which consisted of five matchplay finals: Scratch, Men’s, Seniors‘, Ladies’ and Greensomes. Unfortunately the Junior final was not able to be played due to Jack Maxey being in both this and the Scratch final.

Tee offs were from 1pm in the afternoon to give members a chance to come and spectate the matches after their morning rounds. All matches are played over 18 holes apart from the Scratch final which was over 36 holes.

The weather was kind and gave us good golfing conditions, with a dry but mild afternoon. First to tee off was the second round of the Scratch Final between past winner Jack Maxey and Steve Sorrenson. Steve Sorrenson was 1 down after the first 18 holes but valiantly battled back to get back to all square, then on the back nine went on a birdie barrage (four in a row) to beat Jack 5&4. What a fantastic way to win the final!

In the Men’s final Andy Giles managed to edge second-time finalist Sam Bamford 2&1 after a very close match between the two players.

Next was the Senior final and Dennis Wright put in an excellent performance to beat the reigning champion Ron Wicks 4&3. In the Ladies’ final Laura Key played very steady golf to become victorious over Sallie Nielsen with a score of 3&2. Laura said she played some of the best golf she has in weeks!

Finally, the Greensomes final went down to the first play-off hole after being all square through 18 where Phil Bullen and Ryan Pettit edged father-son duo Les and Nick Waites.

A huge well done to all the winners who all did themselves very proud on the day, and good luck to both Jack Maxey and Alex Hewitson in the junior final next week!
