Junior Boys Matchplay Finals - Morley Hayes
The finals of the Boys Matchplay 2018 were held at Morley Hayes on the 6th and 13th of October 2018.
The Semi Finals saw Tom Broadley defeat Sam Potter by 4 and 3 whilst the other match was a ding-dong battle with Max Hughes finally overcoming Josh Ashton at the 21st hole. The very strong winds caused by the Storm Callum made golf extremely difficult and all players should be congratulated for 'hanging in there'.
The Final was delayed by almost an hour and true to form it went the full distance and more. In very fading light, Max Hughes birdied the 19th hole to pip Tom Broadley. It was a great match played with tremendous sportsmanship and a credit to both players.
In the 3rd and 4th placed play-off, Josh Ashton beat Sam Potter one up over 9 holes.
Thanks to all the parents who attended, supporting all the golfers and also to Morley Hayes for hosting on a tricky day.
