Matchplay summary by Vic Skelton Championship Executive
The positive attitude of all the players and their sportsmanship and competitiveness matched the sunny weather enjoyed at a Cowglen golf course which is in excellent condition.
The morning semi-finals were competitive with Sam Somerville edging out Charlie Greaves 2&1 and Mathew McNally beating Bobby Gray 3&2.
The final saw the best weather of the week and we witnessed a closely fought match which was only decided on the 19th by Sam Somerville’s birdie 3.
A great final, full credit to both players and a birdie a great way to finish both the match and the competition.
