SGU Seniors  Scratch Knock Out final  

Played at Tall Pines GC  22nd Sept 2021


Oake Manor v The Mendip  


In a repeat of the 2019 Seniors Scratch Oake Manor defeated The Mendip at Tall Pines in a very tight and keenly contested final.

After 9 holes Oake were ahead in  four matches and all square in the other. The Mendip turned things around on the back nine with Ian Perkins taking the top match 2 + 1 after an eagle on the 17th.  Chris Lindley teed it up on the 16th 2 up. Bob Tye took the match to the 18th winning the 16th and 17th. His tee shot on the 18th found a poor lie left of the green and he just failed to get up and down giving Chris the opportunity  to hole out for the win which he duly took.

The third match between Mike Shaw of Oake and Martin Myers for The Mendip was very close and it wasn't surprising to find them all square after the 18th.  Before the third match was completed Simon Rudd and Paul Flay completed 3 + 2 and 2 + 1 wins for Oake levelling the overall score.

Both teams followed the third match down the 19th hole. In a repeat of 2019 Oake won the hole to secure the narrowest of victories.

Thanks must go to both teams for competing so well and to Tall Pines for hosting the event and presenting the course in excellent condition.

Current County Seniors Captain Paddy Maclennan and immediate past Couty Seniors Captain Alex Kidd enjoyed the proceedings and the excellent standard of play.

  Oake Manor are the 2019 Seniors Scratch Champions after defeating The Mendip in a very tight contest at Clevedon Golf Club.

At half-way Mendip were in a strong position, ahead in 3 of the 5 singles and all-square in another. However Oake began to turn things around over the second nine and once Bob Tye had finished 1 up over Ian Perkins in the first game the match started to swing their way. Chris Lindley levelled things in the second game with a 2&1 win against Graham Salway but then, with games 4 and 5 finishing 4&3 with a win for both sides, honours were even and all attention was on games 3 between James Ward for Oake and Martin Myers for Mendip. Martin had started well and had been 3 up after 8, however, James pegged him back and although James was I up after 17 the game was all-square after 18. With everything hanging on this game and with both teams follwing the match result was decided on the 19th as Oake Manor claimed the trophy on a day where either team would have been worthy winners.  On receiving the Trophy from SGU President Geoff Ogden, James Ward included thanks to Clevedon Golf Club for hosting the final and was especially complementary on the excellent condition of the greens.
