What a finish, standing on 18 tee, two players tied and 2 just one shot back, it really was anyone’s. When they stood on the first tee it was Silvey leading 2019 Champion Nathan Hodge by 1, with Rod Leetham and Nathan Leslie 6 & 7 shots further back. The front 9 pushed Silvey’s lead to 3 but it was the back 9 where it all started to happen. While it seemed a 2 horse race, birdies and doubles had the 4 players all within one shot. Silvey and Hodge had the one shot advantage but with the wind up, the drive was key. From the tee it looked like both had gone into the water, but relief for Silvey when arriving to find it was safely in the fairway and now had his chance. A shot onto the green about 20 feet would give him a comfortable 2 putt for victory to finish one ahead of Hodge and Leetham. One of the best finishes we have seen and a new name on the list of Champions!!

 

If you thought that was tight, how about the 4 way tie in A grade. Wes Grieg, Baiden Griffiths, Rod Leetham and Nathan Leslie all tied on 222 after 3 rounds, it was the solid last round performance from Grieg that got him the win through count back.

 

While all that was going on, the B grade was running away with it, Nick Milburn getting the job done by a massive 8 shots. After starting week one with a 67 nett, he put up 2 very solid rounds, including a 73 in the last to make sure no one got close.
