Knockout Finals - updated!

knockout glove

Since the first story about the Knockout finals, three competitions have now been completed.  In the Gents Senior Matchplay, Eric English beat John Lunn 4&3..  Janice Cambridge took the Ladies Hole Cup after an exciting finish on the 18th green against Mary Towers yesterday (4th September).  We also know the names of the Huntlyburn Cup winners where Angus & Lily Towers retained the trophy by prevailing over Henry & Carolyn Oliver by 5&3. 

Angus writes that it was a classic  Father / Daughter v Mother / Son clash in the Huntlyburn final.  Both pairs have excellent track records in competitions.  Angus & Lily as previous holders of the Huntlyburn Cup and Carolyn & Henry as winners of this year's Margaret Donaldson Trophy.  Angus & Lily got off to a flying start parring the first and moving to 2 up after 2. However the Olivers came back into the game strongly and moved to 1 up after 5 holes, with Henry using his long game to good effect. The pendulum swung back in favour of the Towers who were two up at the turn, and they never looked back, running out winners 5 and 3.  As Angus says, it was good to see the final being played before the prize giving this year!.  Apparently,  Lilyhas  agreed to carry her "Old Man" round for in future years competition, but " only until they lose" !  Indeed it is less than six months since the '2016' Huntlyburn Cup final was played!

We know the finalists in the Gents Hole Cup where Brian Allan will play Stewart Mabon   The Gents Pye Lyle final will pitch David Richardson & Iain Oliver against Andrew Richardson & Nikki Laidlaw

The full line up in the Ladies Hole Cup is also now known. Janice Cambridge will play Mary Towers.
