2017-10-12 Paschal wins matchplay singles

2017 Matchplay Singles Final - Paschal Morgan victory

The culmination of the match play singles took place on Thursday afternoon with Paschal Morgan (10) taking on Joe McKnight (6).
A nervous first hole was halved but Paschal won the second after Joe's ball plugged beside the green and couldn't be found. To further compound the disappointment, he three putted the next green where Paschal had an easy four to go two up. A birdie three at the next brought it back to one, followed by a par and a further birdie to go one up. Seven was halved but Paschal struck back at the eighth only for Joe to win the ninth and make the turn 1-up.
It is always said that competitions are won on the back nine and this was the case again for this match. Ten was halved in pars and good tee shots at the 11th gave Joe a good chance for birdie with Paschal just off the edge. However Paschal took the initiative and sank his putt while Joe's putt slid by. Twelve was halved in pars but Joe didn't get up and down at thirteen and Paschal had an easy par to go one up. Two good drives at the difficult 14th gave Joe a chance to put the pressure on. A 5-iron to 12 feet left Paschal with the choice of going for the green or laying up. Getting a shot, he decided on the latter and left himself 60 yards. A super chip in to 5 feet gave him a putt for a par and when Joe's birdied putt veered off to the right, he duly converted to go two up. Paschal hit a good shot to the centre of the green at 15 but Joe went long and didn't get up and down, so Paschal two-putted to go dormy three.
Both hit the 16th in two and Paschal lagged a fifty foot putt to four feet. Once again Joe's putt was six inches from the birdie and Paschal converted to win by 3&2.
So congratulations to Paschal on the victory and commiserations to Joe who now has the unfortunate moniker of having played in three singles finals and has yet to win. However it wasn't poor play on his part but Paschal's sparkling form on the back nine which told the tale. He played from ten to sixteen in one under par, which was always only going to end in one result.

2017-10-06 4BBB final

2017 Fourball Betterball Final

The final of the Fourball betterball matchplay took place on Friday afternoon with Shane Lowey (9) and Michael McAnulty (19) taking on Junior (18) and Joe (6) McKnight.

The cagey game started with six halved holes with shots coming into play at 1, 2 and 6. However Michael was playing great golf with six straight pars from holes three to eight to leave them 2-up. Junior was playing steadily as well with pars from holes three to six and only two great putts on 9 kept his team from going 3-down.

Junior and Joe clawed back with pars at 10 and 11 and went ahead for the first time with another par at 12. Shane and Michael were having none of that and again Michael hit two superb shots into 13 to bring it back to level. Shane then nailed a 5 iron into the 14th to win and take the lead again, 1 up.

Junior and Shane nearly birdied the 15th then Michael hit a cracker of a drive down the 16th. Joe followed slightly behind on the fairway with Shane and Junior in the trees to the right. With Michael getting a shot, Junior’s advice to Joe was fairly straightforward – “You may leave this beside the pin!” Joe hit an 8-iron from 157 yards to 6 inches for a birdie three. Michael was left of the green and after chipping had a putt for par but it slipped just past to mean the match was level again.

On the 17th four good drives left shots to the green however all missed with Junior first to play with his third shot. He hit a 5-iron to 5 feet while Shane and Michael were short. Joe chipped to 3 feet from behind the bunker then Shane and Michael saw their putts for par just slip by. Joe halved the hole with a 4 so Junior had a free putt for the win, but it just fell away at the last.

With the match all square, the players shook hands on the 18th tee before driving off. Joe and Shane were right of the fairway but Junior and Michael (who were both getting shots) drove left. They both chipped out while the others played down the fairway. Shane’s approach went left while Joe came up just short, while Michael’s fourth shot also dropped agonizingly short. Junior was pin high a foot off the green. Michael chipped up short and had a putt for a six and Junior putted up to 18 inches. Michael’s putt just slid past so Joe and Junior scraped past the post with a 1 hole win.

It was a tight game played in good spirits with some outstanding golf on a lovely Autumn evening. Joe and Junior had to dig deep to stay in the game to claim the title for the third time in 10 years with Shane and Michael unlucky in a game so close it could have went either way.
