GENTS CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP 36 HOLE FINALS DAY

Scratch Final

In the morning round Adam Taylor played very good golf going round in 66 four under par with 5 birdies to be 5up on Russell Patterson at lunchtime in the afternoon Russell did get it back to 4 down after 5 holes but Adam then birdied the 24th to go back to 5 up, the next 4 holes were halved, Russell then won the 29th the 30th was halved and then Adam did well to get his par and halve the 31st. Both had good drives at the 32nd and put their approach shots in close Adam holed his putt for the birdie and when Russell could not follow him into the hole it meant Adam won the Scratch Final 5 & 4.

With both Greg Pullar and Ashley Routledge playing of 12 handicap there were no shots involved in the handicap final Greg got off to a good start being 3 up after 4 holes, then winning the 6th to go 4 up, Ashley pulled one back at the 7th but lost the 9th to be 4 down. Greg then had a good run winning the 12th, 13th and 14th to go 7up, Ashley won the 15th and 17th to be 5 down at lunchtime with Greg round in 77 shots. Greg won the 19th to go 6 up, Ashley won the 20th then Greg birdied the 21st and won the 22nd to go 7up.
