Clevedon Golf Club held their knockout finals day with many matches needing extra holes to be decided.

Club knockout finals day at Clevedon Golf Club saw some excellent golf and close matches on a damp and dismal day.

In the men’s competitions, the Alun Rees Scratch Trophy was won on the 36th hole, with Myles Angell beating Andy Ferris one up, and in the Captains Trophy, Steve Buckland overcame Jon Mansell 2&1.

The pairs competition for the Watkins Cup was won by Paul Faulkner and Mike Crook, who finally saw off the challenge from Adam Williams and Alan Stevenson, again on the 36th hole, winning one up.

The mixed competition for the Ross-Goobey Trophy was claimed by father and daughter Andy and Charlotte Millington after Ron and Laureen Angell were beaten on the first play-off hole.

It was a similar story in the Past Captains Plate where Rob Doy and Craig Andrews could not be separated after 18 holes. Rob won the 19th to take the trophy, while in the Grandpa Quaich played earlier in the week, Jon Mansell eased past Ian Sellick 7&5.

In the ladies’ competitions, three of the matches needed to go to extra holes to decide the winners. Heather Priestley won the Langford Ladle, Linda Reynolds took the Floyd Cup, while Juliet Hagley was the winner of the Ford Salver. Paddy’s Putter was won by Sarah Martin.

Earlier in the week, Linda Reynolds top scored in the ladies’ Stableford with 37 points, one ahead of Sandra Jones. Laureen Angell took third place with 34.

The club midweek Stableford had to be decided on countback with Bob Anderson and Steve Lawrence each scoring 39 points, Bob winning with a better back nine.
