Knock Out Cup Finals
The final of the Richard Long Salvers (Foursomes) was played on Saturday 1st October. Tolly stars Ian Foxton & James Nolloth did battle with fellow Tolly star Kevin Fitzgerald and his son Patrick. Ian & James got off to a flyer in the morning 18, leading at lunch by six holes. Kevin & Patrick clawed their way back into the match reducing the deficit to 1 by the turn. A nip and tuck back 9 eventually saw Ian & James win by 2 & 1.
In the final of the Scratch (Sunday 18th Sept), Luke Thompson had a comfortable 10 hole victory over Junior Captain Conal Downing. The final of the Spashett Cup (Sunday 18th Sept) was a much closer affair, as Tolly star James Nolloth took on the in-form Michael Sharp. Michael held a slender one hole advantage at lunch despite having to give James 10 shots. James came out of the blocks quickly after lunch and soon established a five hole lead, Michael fought back but could not overturn the deficit with James eventually coming out on top by 2 & 1. In the final of the Rabbits, Danny Clark went one better than last year, after edging David Colman in the final. Danny finished runner-up to Richard Duckett in 2015. Another in-form player Roger Hutton had a convincing 6 & 5 victory over Keith Bagot in the seniors Black Mamba KO Cup final.
Richard Utton & Phillip Large will do battle in the final of the Long Handicap Cup on Saturday 15th October.
