Cold and windy with clear skies were the conditions at Moonah Links Open Course to see who would advance to The Final.
Barry Young got off to a flyer and was 4 up after 6, he kept the pressure on all day and came away with a 5&4 win. His team mate and group partner John Genoglou was able to overcome the local knowledge of Sean Wilson to win 3&2. These 2 match results were enough to put them straight through to the final with the other 2 matches becoming dead rubbers.
Our other contest however was the closest for the season. With both teams winning 2 matches each it was the first time this year we had to use the tiebreak equation of holes up and won to see who would advance. With One Step Further winning their matches 3&1 and 4&2 (3+1+4+2=10) and SGCC winning their matches 3&2 and 2&1 (3+2+2+1=8), One Step Further scrapped through by 2 holes.
Good luck to One Step Further and Pretenders for The Final on July 29. They will be enjoying dinner, 1 nights accommodation, breakfast, golf and lunch at Victoria Golf Club all for FREE!
We say goodbye and thank you to Sandbelt Saints and SGCC whose matches didn’t quite go the right way for them on the day but we look forward to having you back next year.
