Surrey Boys (green division) knock out
On a lovely September afternoon the Surrey boys green division handicap knock out Final was played at West Byfleet Golf Club between Justin Chan (Wentworth) and Sam Woodham (Windlesham). The boys were accompanied on the course by Surrey rules official Danny Lee.
Despite giving 2 shots to Sam, Justin was 2up after the first two holes, then until the 8th the match was nip and tuck with Sam pulling a hole back then Justin reclaiming a two hole lead. On the 8th Justin went 3up with a fine birdie three, only for Sam to strike straight back winning the 9th. So the front nine finished with Justin 2up.
On the back nine Sam immediately got himself right back into the match with a nett birdie on the 10th and fine gross birdies on the 11th and 12th to take the lead for the first time in the match. Sam then won the 13th to go 2up. But Justin wasn’t having any of it and won the 14th, Sam was now only 1up.
The 15th was halved, then Justin won the 16th to make the match all square, the 17th was also halved, so on the 18th tee it was all square, this had been a great battle between two good players.
On the 18th Justin took the honours to win the title 1up, this had without doubt been a superb final and played in great spirit by both lads, who are a credit to their Clubs.
Congratulations to Justin Chan the Surrey green division handicap Knock Out Champion.
The trophy was presented by Danny Lee.
Our thanks to West Byfleet for hosting both the Blue and Green Boys Knock Out Finals.
