Oliver Farrell wins the 2013 Men's Matchplay Championship

Oliver Farrell wins the 2013 Men's Match play Championship

The Final was played at 8.00 am on Saturday 16th November at Moseley Golf Club between Oliver Farrell and Tom Godfrey. Both players are rising stars in the Junior ranks but have excelled themselves to reach the final of the Men's Match play.

In a closely fought front nine there was very little between them and Oliver birdied the 9th hole to turn 1 up. The course was in fine condition for the time of year and in benign conditions Oliver started the back nine with two further birdies on the 11th and 12th to take a commanding lead. Tom holed a good 10 foot putt on the 13th to prevent himself from going 4 down. From then on, holes were halved in solid pars before Oliver secured his victory on the 16th green, winning 3&2.

Congratulations to Oliver Farrell who becomes the 2013 Men's Match Play Champion.
