Thomas Boyd earns first club championship win

  • 24 August 2017
Thomas Boyd wins the club championship on the last hole after an exiting match defeating the current and 5 times champion Colin Baird.

Thomas had a 4 up lead after 12 holes in the first round but by the end of the round his lead had been pegged back to 2 up. Colin then got it back to all square after 15 holes of the afternoon round, but Thomas secured a birdie to go ahead again at the 16th. He closed the match out with a drive and 7 iron shot to the final green forcing Colin to concede the match.

In the Ladies final, Eva O'Connor was in convincing form to win her second club championship against Jo Young.

The Seniors final was once again between Les Innes and Nicol Rennie and on this occasion the winner was Les by 2 & 1.

The winner of the Junior class 1 was Kieran Moore by a walk over with Gabriel Hughes runner up; and the Class 2 winner was Jay McFarlane Letham winning 5 & 4 against Cameron Faulds.

For the first time the Forgie and Tevendale finals were also played on finals day. Kyle Gilmour was a convincing winner of the Forgie cup, defeating Colin Paterson. The Tevendale final was a much closer affair with Brian Reid edging out Peter McDade at the nineteenth hole.
