Gents Matchplay winner is...…!

Congratulations to Muckhart's Alex Turlik for winning today's Gents Matchplay played over his home course.  He narrowly defeated Blairgowrie's Brad Bannerman in our final this afternoon.  Both players got off to a slow start but very quickly found their impressive form that saw them come through their semi final matches.

Alex managed to take a 2 shot lead through the turn - but a chip in from Brad at the 12th saw him claw it back.  Alex had a great up & down at 15 to get back to 2 - but Brad hit a great birdie up 16 to make it a little bit tight playing 17.  Both players hit superb approach shots - but nether could capitalise so they stood on 18 wth Alex holding the slenderest margin.

Unfortunately Brad's ball buried itself in the soft ground along the right side of the fairway - and despite all the spectators efforts - it was one for the moles.  Brad tried in vain to go back to collect his thoughts andre-load but Alex hit an easy lay up then a geat chip to 8 feet which he holed.

A fantastic result for the young player and a great advert for Perth & Kinross golf.  The standard of play all weekend was very high and shows how important it is for all of our players to be competing at the highest possible levels.

Huge thanks to all the team at Muckhart for supporting our P&KCGU event - the course was in tremendous condition and proved a stiff test for us all weekend.
