Match Play Finals

12th & 13th October at Heacham Manor

The Order of Merit for 2019 finally came to an end at Heacham Manor on the weekend of 12th & 13th October. The Saturday was a fine day with high winds testing the skills of all players and the players didn’t disappoint producing some quality golf.

In the Scratch competition Ben Rawsthorne, Jack Cullington, Joe Robinson and Aiden Tanner made it through to the semi-finals on Sunday.

In the Handicap competition the semi-final line up was Charlie Green v Luke Hudson and Jacob Jeary v Sean Rafferty.

Sunday morning was very wet, unfortunately one player had to pull out due to back problems resulting in Ben Rawsthorne receiving a walk over. The other semi-final between Jack Cullington & Joe Robinson was played in extremely testing conditions with Jack progressing into the final.

In the handicap semi-finals Jacob Jeary beat Sean Rafferty and Luke Hudson beat Charlie Green.

The Scratch Final between Ben Rawsthorne & Jack Cullington produced some excellent golf, with Ben winning 5 & 4.

The Handicap Final between Jacob Jeary & Luke Hudson was closely contested for most of the match. Jacob was 3 up with 3 to play but Luke fought staged a sterling fight back to square the match and take it into sudden death. The 1st extra hole was halved but an excellent birdie from Jacob at the next hole saw him win the championship.

The County would like to thank Heacham Manor for their continued sponsorship of County Golf and for the use of their golf course which was in very good condition, the ground staff for their marvellous work keeping the greens free from flooding and Ed Howes and all his staff for looking after the players and County officials.

Thanks also to the 3 Referees, Pam Brooks, Derek Sadler and Mike Devlin, for their dedication to duty in extremely trying conditions, hopefully they have dried out!

A final thanks to Norman Blanch for his role in organising the order of merits throughout the year together with finals weekend.
