2018 Junior Matchplay RESULTS

The sun was shining for our players at Lansdowne yesterday for the Semi's and Finals of this years Matchplay.  We are very grateful to everyone at The Blairgowrie Golf Club for hosting our matches following the re-arrangements caused by snow at the start of the school holidays.

The golf on display was of a very high standard with closely fought matches in all of the Semi Finals.

Alex Simpson (Strathmore) managed to overcome Andrew Thornton (Muckhart) in the 1st Scratch Semi Final and home player Fraser Matthews had an impressive game against Jamie Roberts (Muckhart) in the second match.

The Handicap Semi Finals were just as competitve between Muckhart's Lewis Seath and Crieff's Calum Draper.  Calum was giving away a number of shots and did well to take it all the way losing on the 18th.  The other Semi Final was between Muckhart's Luke Volland and Milnathort's Rory Hutchison.  This was another keenly fought contest with Rory winning 2&1.

After a very quick turnaround for a comfort break and a sugar rush the finals were on.

Alex got off to a very strong start with a number of birdies in the opening 5 holes.  This opened up a lead which Fraser did well to contain and then reduce down - but Alex was in control of his game and the pair shook hands on the 16th with Alex winning 3 & 2.  The golf on display was excellent considering how early in the season and was played in great spirit by both players.  Well Done Alex. 

In the Handicap Final Lewis managed to sneak a couple in front over the front 9 and made good use of his strokes to go 4 up at the 13th.  Rory had an impressive up & down, followed by a very solid Par into the wind, to get it back to 2 down with 4 to play.  Unfortunately he boomed a driver into the trees at the 15th allowing Lewis to go dormy 3 - which he held onto - also winning 3 & 2. 

Lewis is relatively new to the game and played very well over a new course.  Rory was fighting all the way - and again this game was played in the best spirit and credit to all of our players for their performances today.
