MEN’S MATCH PLAY REPORT
There were some great 1st and 2nd matches with the highlight being the match between County Champion Callum Fern from the Nottinghamshire against 1st teamer Adam Dorricott from Chilwell Manor. Dorricott 2 up with 2 to play saw Fern hole a 30-footer on the 17th green to keep the match going and whilst Dorricott made a mess of the last Fern made an Eagle on the last to take the game into extra holes, Fern prevailed on the 4th extra hole.
This set up 2 semi -finals of Nottinghamshire’s finest young guns, the first semi saw Fern take on Worksop’s Reece Samson and the second semi- final saw Beeston Fields’ Jake Benson (recent winner of the Sherwood Forester and Hunstanton Bowl) against Jordan Boulton (Notts) who continues to impress in America at his college.
Samson ran out winner in the first semi 2 & 1 and Benson beat Boulton to set up an exciting final. The final was a high-quality affair, as befitting the standard of golfers they are, with Reece Samson beating Jake by 2 & 1.
